ZAKK WYLDE Releases Emoji Set

Guitar icon Zakk Wylde (BLACK LABEL SOCIETY, OZZY OSBOURNE) has released a new custom emoji set available starting today via Emoji Fame, the go-to company specializing in making emoji sets for musicians. Thus far, the artist emoji space has been dominated by hip-hop and EDM acts, Zakk Wylde's set is one of the first on the rock/metal side of things, and the first for a guitar god.

"Many members of the Emoji Fame team are secretly guitar nerds, so when Zakk Wylde agreed to do an emoji set with us we were beyond excited," says Gavin Rhodes, co-founder of Emoji Fame. "Zakk is arguably one of the top-ten most influential guitar players of all time and we're immensely proud of the set that we put together with him. His emojis are hilarious with a double dose of SHRED thrown in for good measure.”

The emoji set is available starting today.

Wylde recently announced new U.S. and Canadian tour dates in continued support of his new LP, "Book Of Shadows II". Wylde will hit over 40 cities spread out across the U.S. and Canada this summer including a performance at Heavy Montreal festival in Montreal on August 7, a first for him as a solo artist.

"Book Of Shadows II" was released on April 8 via Entertainment One Music (eOne Music). Zakk's first solo release in 20 years is the follow-up to 1996's "Book Of Shadows", a classic album Wylde released between his work with Ozzy Osbourne that has since become a fan favorite.
