In a statement on social media, Danzig announced, “Joining Danzig on these Historic Shows will be special guests Behemoth, Twin Temple & Midnight. These will be the Only Danzig Shows for the foreseeable future, so do not miss this opportunity to see these rare Danzig Performances.”
Danzig takes its name from frontman Glenn Danzig, who first broke into the music scene after founding the punk group Misfits in 1977, taking their name from the Marilyn Monroe film. Misfits were known for pioneering a new kind of punk, dubbed “horror punk,” blending stylistic elements of both punk and metal. After departing the Misfits, Danzig went on to form the group Samhain, who were only together for three years before legendary producer Rick Rubin scouted Danzig for his new label, Def American Records. Glenn and Samhain bassist Eerie Von signed with Rubin, and together they formed a new group, Danzig.
Danzig leaned heavier into its frontman’s metal influences and is still known today as one of the most influential metal groups of their time. The lineup has changed over the years, but the current tour will feature members Johnny Kelly on drums, Steve Zing on bass, and Tommy Victor on guitar alongside Glenn Danzig.
The tour will stop in Atlantic City, Boston, Chicago, Atlanta, Houston, and more cities across the country from August 25th to September 17th. The group released its latest album, Black Laden Crown in 2017.

I love metal writers showing off that they were listening to metal during junior high math class.
