Rob Zombie has confirmed that he’s completed work on his as yet untitled new studio album.
Back in May, uDiscover Music revealed that the follow-up to the shock rocker’s 2016’s The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser was “more or less finished.” However, Zombie has now revealed what fans can expect when his band’s next album launches in 2019. “The record’s done. It’ll get out next year, early next year,” he told Loudwire. “I think this and so do the guys in the band. I think it’s the best record we’ve made.
“Parts of it are the heaviest, parts are the weirdest, it’s the most complex record we’ve ever made, but at the same time it’s always very catchy and listenable, but it’s the most intricately structured record.
“There are those songs that go in a direction we’ve never even gone near before. Personally, I like records that are very varied in sound. Not just like, ‘Oh, here’s 12 super heavy tracks,’ and they’re all the same tempo.”
Zombie adds: “I like records that are all over the place. That’s why I think my favourite Beatles record was always The “White” Album.”
Rob Zombie is currently performing live on the much-publicised The Twins Of Evil: The Second Coming Tour with Marilyn Manson. Last week, the pair released their cover of Beatles’ classic ‘Helter Skelter’, which can be heard above here.
