GELI disk and glabel label

I was trying to organize hard disk using labels and labelled two geli disks:

glabel secure /dev/da1
galbel backups /dev/da2

The problem is now I can't mount them :/
geli attach -k /root/geli.key
geli: Cannot read metadata from /dev/da1

Is there anything I can do to 'revert' the glabel operation? If I have a backup of these disks, can I grab the metadata from them and restore the data?
