January 14, 2017 — Guitar icon ZAKK WYLDE today has debuted an all new music video for his latest track “Lost Prayer” from his latest solo LP Book of Shadows II. Directed by long-time collaborator Justin Reich, it’s the second video installment we’ve seen from Zakk from BOSII.
Over the summer Wylde released the “Sleeping Dogs” music video (seen below) featuring Slipknot / Stone Sour frontman COREY TAYLOR. That track has gone on to become the most successful active rock radio single of Wylde’s career reaching as high as #15 in the U.S. and #5 in Canada.
Wylde will be hitting the road next week with ZAKK SABBATH for three shows in Southern California including a third annual stint at the official NAMM party at The Grove of Anaheim on Saturday January 21st. Zakk Sabbath has also been confirmed for a handful of spring and summer festivals MMR-B-Q, Rocklahoma and the recently sold out Rock On The Range.
ZAKK SABBATH includes himself, bassist Blasko (OZZY OSBOURNE, ROB ZOMBIE) and drummer Joey Castillo (DANZIG, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE) performing only BLACK SABBATH songs.
Zakk will participate in the 2017 Experience Hendrix Tour alongside Billy Cox, Buddy Guy and Kenny Wayne Shepherd for a third straight year.

Book Of Shadows II was released on April 8th, 2016 via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music), Zakk Wylde’s first solo release in 20 years. This release is the highly anticipated follow up to 1996’s Book of Shadows LP, a classic album Wylde released between his work with Ozzy Osbourne that has since become a fan favorite. The album debuted at #2 on the Independent Chart, #3 on the Rock Chart and # 6 on the Current Albums Chart, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
The fearlessly introspective melancholy and melody of Book of Shadows helped to make its follow-up one of Rolling Stone’s Most Anticipated Albums of 2016. As fierce and diverse as his work in Black Label Society and as large as his accomplishments as lead guitarist for Ozzy Osbourne have been, Book of Shadows II offers an even richer look into the spirit and psyche of one of the most beloved pillars of the hard rock community. Brand new tracks like “Sleeping Dogs,” “Tears of December,” “Darkest Hour,” “Harbors of Pity,” and “The King” are bold proclamations of intense feeling and powerful catharsis.
Zakk Wylde’s powerful pipes, mayhem-inducing charisma, mischievous humor, and instantly recognizable pinch-harmonic driven blues based histrionic guitar shredding have made him the world’s most beloved American Guitar Hero.
“Whether he’s unplugged or fully electric, Wylde’s guitar skills are never in doubt, and that’s definitely the case on Book of Shadows II. Certainly not a party album, it’s one better enjoyed kicking back, mellowing out and letting the emotions wash over you.” LOUDWIRE
“Somber, introspective, and Allman-esque, Wylde integrates soulful acoustic singer-songwriting with a strong ensemble and a variety of contemplative moods.” VINTAGE GUITAR
