Rob Zombie Reveals Title + Release Date for Upcoming Album
Rob Zombie has been talking about his next studio album for quite some time, but now comes word that the disc has a title and is expected this April. In addition, Zombie revealed a firm release date for his upcoming film, 'The Lords of Salem,' which will closely follow the new album.
The disc, titled 'Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor,' is now on schedule for an April 23 street date courtesy of Zodiac Swan / T-Boy / Ume. Zombie worked closely with acclaimed rock producer Bob Marlette on the set. 'The Lords of Salem' film will follow in theaters April 26, though the music on the album is completely separate from the movie.
Last fall, Zombie revealed of the new disc, "It's stylistically sort of a little bit of everything. Fans of my really old stuff will love it because there's a certain aspect of it that's very reminiscent of that. But it is also very looking to the future. It's hard to describe music to somebody if they haven't heard it, but I feel like it's the best of all the things I've done. I've finally found a perfect match between the old stuff I did and then new stuff. That's the way it sounds to me anyway."
The veteran rocker added that he's got a special feeling about the new record, explaining, "It seems to happen every couple of years or every 10 years or every five years or whatever, you have a moment when it all comes together. Not that the other records are bad, but not every record can be like the most inspired event in your life. But for some reason, this one feels like it. The songwriting, the sound of it, the vibe, the production -- it's special."
The album details came with the announcement that Zombie would be honored at this year's Revolver Golden Gods Awards on May. 2. Click below for more details:
