Rob Zombie Signs with Nuclear Blast Records, Announces New Album

Combustible Melodic Masterpiece gets a 2019 release date.

By Michelle Kaotic

Currently on tour with Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie recently announced that he has signed with Nuclear Blast Records. Consistently pushing boundaries in both film and music, the rocker expressed his excitement to work with the indie label on his seventh solo album.

I am very excited to work with the fine folks at Nuclear Blast. The combination of the label's grassroots urge to get the hustle done mixed with the detonation of our most combustable [sic] melodic masterpiece yet should prove to be a winning hybrid of hellacious hullabaloo.

The album will be a follow up to 2016’s The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser. Along with John 5 (guitar), Piggy D (bass), and Ginger Fish (drums), Zombie claims that this album will not only be one of their best, but one of their weirdest to date. "The record’s done," Zombie told Loudwire. "It’ll get out next year, early next year. I think this and so do the guys in the band... I think it’s the best record we’ve made."

The rocker has also finished his latest film Three From Hell starring Sid Haig, Sherri Moon Zombie, and Bill Moseley.  The highly-anticipated sequel to The Devi’s Rejects may not have an official release date yet, but fans can catch the teaser trailer during dates on the "Twins of Evil -2018 The Second Coming" tour that kicked off on July 11th in Detroit.

This is not the first time that Zombie and Manson have hit the road together. In 2012, the two shared stages throughout the US and UK. Not long into the tour, a feud erupted and almost jeopardized the remaining dates. The two shock-rockers turned to their social media accounts to give their side of the altercation. Fortunately the tour continued and fans were not disappointed.

A few years have passed and the two buried the hatchet to team up on a co-headlining tour. So far, the shows have been going off without a hitch. In addition to touring, recording a new album, and directing a movie, Zombie also recorded a slowed down, more grungy version of the Beatles' "Helter Skelter" with Marilyn Manson that they’ve been performing live during the set.

Growing up in Northern Ontario, Canada, I still remember that first time watching The Exorcist as a kid. While others looked away, I took in every pea green puke and head-spinning moment that I could. Since then, horror and music have become passionate hobbies in my life. Although new to the convention scene, I’ve been collecting both horror and music items for over two decades. Two moments that make these hobbies worthwhile were coming face to face with Freddy Krueger himself, the legendary Robert Englund, and shaking hands with guitar icon Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin. I started Kaotic Notes back in 2015 to house the numerous reviews, interviews, photos, and videos that I had done, and continue to do so to this day. It’s only rock and roll with a touch of blood and gore. What can go wrong?!
