Guitar icon ZAKK WYLDE 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.

"Lets Go" continues to make its mark as a mainstay sports anthem as Chris Clemence joins the ranks of top anthem writers. Originally written with New York in mind, the uprising stadium banger has enjoyed continued success, and is now set to air at the Pro Bowl and Super Bowl LI. "Lets Go" has been a staple this season in the stadiums and arenas of the New York Giants, Jets, Rangers, and Knicks. Look out Gary Glitter, Clemence is well on his way to having his own "Rock & Roll Part 2".
The song really taps into the New York spirit, featuring the signature growl of New York Hardcore legend, Harley Flanagan of the Cro Mags, as well as Madison Square Garden's organist Ray Castoldi, who was recently featured in the New York Times for his organ playing with the Rangers and Knicks: www.nytimes.com .
Clemence and Flanagan were also recently featured for the new single in Rolling Stone Magazine. Clemence sees nothing but more success for "Lets Go" as the song gains more and more popularity and downloads skyrocket.
"The song has had a really great response, and it's exciting to watch it grow even bigger", said Clemence, "I can't wait to see what happens next."
"Lets Go" featuring Harley Flanagan by Chris Clemence is available for download on iTunes but Clemence says "For the full effect, you have to go hear it at a game"
