The 7” single "Fairies Wear Boots" is the first taste of ZAKK SABBATH's sophomore full-length, planned for release in early 2024. This metal classic was originally released as the final track on BLACK SABBATH's sophomore full-length "Paranoid" in 1970.
ZAKK SABBATH are a work of love. The band was founded by BLACK LABEL SOCIETY guitarist and singer Zakk Wylde, renowned for his many years as lead guitarist for OZZY OSBOURNE and now PANTERA, in tribute to the foursome most regarded as the 'inventors' of heavy metal: BLACK SABBATH.
Initially playing shows with a rotating lineup, ZAKK SABBATH released a 12" EP entitled "Live in Detroit" in 2017. Inspired by the 50th anniversary of BLACK SABBATH's self-titled debut full-length, tellingly released on Friday the 13th in 1970, the finally stable cast of Zakk, OZZY OSBOURNE and ROB ZOMBIE bass player Blasko and Joey Castillo on drums (DANZIG, QUEEN OF THE STONE AGE) entered the studio in 2019 for a proper homage to a record which changed music forever.
ZAKK SABBATH released their tribute to the monumental heavy metal milestone under the title "Vertigo" in 2020, a nod to BLACK SABBATH's legendary label Vertigo Records.
"Vertigo" was heaped with praise from critics and fans alike. The trio's first full-length also became a massive global success, underscored by impressive Billboard chart entries such as #5 on the US Hard Music chart, #7 on the Current Rock Albums chart and #27 on the Billboard Top Albums chart. Abroad, it was ranked #1 in Metal Albums in France and #3 on the German Album chart, as well as #9 on the UK Top 40 Rock/Metal chart.
"Fairies Wear Boots" continues ZAKK SABBATH's passionate homage to Birmingham's greatest.
