The first single from Rob Zombie's fifth solo album Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor has made its online debut. You can finally listen to something new since Hellbilly Deluxe 2. "Dead City Radio And The New Gods Of Supertown" is available on the Soundcloud player below.
Rob Zombie, who hasn't released a new album in quite some time, has unveiled Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor's cover artwork. The new album will hit stores on April 23rd. You can also listen to an audio sample of the first single "Dead City Radio And The New Gods Of Super Town" to be released off the new album through the YouTube video below.
US alternative/industrial metallers Rob Zombie have announced that the band will enter the studio in June to begin recording their next album, which is set for a late 2012 release.
Rob Zombie recently stated: "It has been way, and I mean way too long without any new music. I am dying to get back to it. I have not felt this much excitement within the band since recording the first Hellbilly Deluxe record almost 15 years ago. We have been working on tons of songs for quite some time and I can safely say this will definitely be our best record yet."
Rob Zombie has officially recruited former Marilyn Manson drummer Ginger Fish (real name: Kenneth Robert Wilson) as the replacement for departed sticksman Joey Jordison — who left due to scheduling conflicts with his primary band, Slipknot.
Ginger Fish played his first show with Rob Zombie on February 6 at the Catalyst in Santa Cruz, California. He remained behind the kit for all of Rob Zombie's US dates in February before Jordison — who was in Europe performing with Murderdolls — rejoined the group in time for Rob Zombie's UK headlining dates at the end of that same month.
Get ready for hell on earth, because for the first time since they tour together on Ozzfest 1999, Rob Zombie and Slayer are teaming up to hit the road, bringing a glorious purgatory to fans in 12 North American cities.
Both Zombie and Slayer will present their full headline sets at every show, and both bands will close shows over the course of the tour. San Francisco's thrash-metal band Exodus has been confirmed to open all shows.
Said Slayer's Kerry King: "We haven't toured with Zombie since Ozzfest 1999, so you can expect no less than 'hell on earth'. Total sonic annihilation and a visual bludgeoning. Bring your own body bag..."
"Total destruction on stage and off is what this combination promises," states Zombie, "Seriously, how much more Hell could you ask for? The answer is none more Hell."
Rob Zombie is set for a return to the UK stage after a 12-year hiatus. Rob and his band - featuring guitarist John 5 (ex-Marilyn Manson, John 5), bassist Piggy D (ex-Wednesday 13) and drummer Joey Jordison (Slipknot) - will play a string of six dates this coming February, finally bringing their visually-arresting, high-octane, pyro-laden, monster stage show to U.K. shores. Support comes from Skindred and Rob Zombie's Roadrunner U.K. labelmates Revoker.
Rob is looking forward to the visit, saying: "I am thrilled to be finally heading back to the UK. I have been away far too long, but trust me it will be worth the wait. The band is in top form and completely ready to destroy."
Rob Zombie has premiered the track "Everything Is Boring" on ARTISTdirect.com. The track features Joey Jordison of Slipknot bashing behind the kit, John 5 ripping on the axe and Piggy D holding the bass groove. It's one of Zombie's most explosive and engaging salvos ever. The track is available on the special edition of Hellbilly Deluxe 2 hitting shelves on September 28 via Roadrunner Records. The special edition offers two other songs with Jordison on drums "Michael" and "Devil's Hole Girls and the big Revolution" as well as a documentary entitled Transylvania Transmissions. Of course, there's also "Everything is Boring"
Rob checks in:"It's such a funny phrase, but I often end up saying, 'Jesus Christ, everything is so fucking boring," laughs Zombie. "When I'm flipping TV channels or doing anything, I find myself saying that a lot. I thought, 'Alright, I'll make a song out of it.'"
It's a bill that fans of horror and hard rock could only dream of until now: Rob Zombie and Alice Cooper sharing the stage for a night of theatrical rock n' roll madness. For the first time ever, the "gruesome twosome" will play an exclusive limited run of North American tour dates beginning April 26th at the MTS Center in Winnipeg, MB.
Rob Zombie commented: "The dream or the nightmare comes true! Me and The Coop have been talking about touring together for the last 15 years and finally the moment is here. This will be without a doubt a Rock 'N' Roll Spooktacular for all the Cool Ghouls."
Alice Cooper added: "I'm looking forward to theses concerts with Rob. It's sort of like Dracula Vs. Frankenstein. We're like this generation's classic monsters. When we're not onstage frightening audiences, we'll be backstage trying to scare each other."
In a sudden and unexpected move, multi-platinum hard rock artist Rob Zombie has inked a new worldwide deal with leading rock label Roadrunner Records through its Loud & Proud imprint.
This shocking announcement comes as Zombie exits his former label of eighteen years, where he sold fifteen million records as a solo artist and with his former band White Zombie. Zombie's new album, Hellbilly Deluxe 2, previously set for release on 11/17 will now be released by Roadrunner/Loud & Proud Records in early 2010.
"It certainly wasn't an easy decision to make after all this time, but it had to be done," states Zombie. "I love this new record and wanted to surround myself with an excited new group of people who can reignite my enthusiasm for working within a hard rock record label. Roadrunner seems to be the perfect place."
US metallers Rob Zombie will release their forthcoming album, "Hellbilly Deluxe 2: Noble Jackals, Penny Dreadfuls And The Systematic Dehumanization Of Cool", on November 10 via Geffen Records.
