ROB ZOMBIE COMPLETES WORK ON NEW STUDIO ALBUM
Rob Zombie has finished mixing his sixth solo studio album, saying on Twitter, “(It’s my] best album yet. No joke.” Zombie recently said in an interview with Loudwire that “every song” on the new studio album “seems different and exciting” and he “cannot wait to play” the material live once the CD is released later this year. The new disc follows up 2013’s Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor.
Zombie said he was eager to get to work on the new record because of the way the last one turned out: “We’re really excited because we really felt that for ourselves as a band, the last record really kind of got back to something that I was looking for, and we were just excited to take it to the next level. When you’re feeling inspired, you kind of want to go for it, because sometimes you don’t feel inspired.”
Zombie will also release a new live album, Spookshow International Live, on February 24th. The CD will feature 19 tracks, including fan favorites “Dragula” and “Living Dead Girl,” tracks from Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, and a cover of the Ramones’ “Blitzkrieg Bop.”
The singer said about the new live disc, “It’s been eight years since our last live album, so we figured it was time for another.'”
Zombie is also scheduled to begin production on his next film as a director, 31, in February. He raised money for the film’s budget through a Kickstarter campaign.
