DANZIG: 'The Essential' Collection Due In October

DANZIG will release a greatest-hits compilation, "The Essential Danzig", on October 25 via Sony Legacy. The exact track listing for the collection has not yet been revealed.

As previously reported, Glenn Danzig will play several shows in October where he will perform a career-spanning set featuring songs from DANZIG, SAMHAIN and MISFITS with none other than ex-MISFITS axeman Doyle Von Frankenstein joining Glenn on guitar for the MISFITS portion of the set.

When asked about the reports that he is recording an album of covers, Glenn said in a recent interview, "It's [got] lots of different stuff [on it]. Of course there's an Elvis [Presley] song on there, there's a BLACK SABBATH cover Then I took some old biker-movie theme songs and made them all old punk-sounding or whatever Just fucking around, really just having a good time taking songs and giving them a different life or a different dimension. I just do what I feel like doing, as long as I don't just cover it, because that's boring to me. I wanna take it and change it and give it some other kind of thing. Otherwise just leave it alone."

A "Danzig Legacy" TV special is being filmed in Los Angeles this summer and is being directed by Mark Brooks (Adult Swim's "Metalocalypse"). More information will be released soon.
