ROB ZOMBIE Talks Future Of Crowdfunding, Upcoming Studio Album (Video)

Germany's EMP Rock Invasion recently conducted an interview with Rob Zombie. You can now watch the chat below. A couple of excerpts follow (transcribed by BLABBERMOUTH.NET).

On whether he thinks crowdfunding is the future of artistic freedom:

"I don't know. I think it kinds of works right now and it's kind of cool, but I don't know if people get sick of it. 'Cause like most things, when it's new and when it's a new idea, people are kind of excited about it, but I don't know how many times you can keep crowdfunding things. But I don't know… I think what's gonna be the next thing, though, will sort of be like crowdfunding, but if you put in a certain amount of money, you're an actual owner of part of the movie. So if the movie makes money, you'll make money. I think that's the next thing. No one's been able to quite figure out how to do that yet, 'cause it's very complicated — if you suddenly have a thousand people that have a percentage of the movie and how do you pay 'em. But I think that's gonna be the next thing they figure out."

On the next ROB ZOMBIE studio album:

"The next studio record's done, and it's not out yet, because I was working on the ['31'] movie, and I was, like, 'I can't really properly tour yet [in support of it].' So the new record will be out next year, and we're gonna make a full-length — I'm not sure what it's gonna be yet; I'm still trying to figure it out — a full-length movie to go with the record. Because I know, at this point, people don't care about CDs. I don't know if they care over here [in Germany]. But I know that people still like watching videos and stuff, and if you make interesting visual content to go with the songs, it seems like people like that more. So that's what I wanna do."

"31", written and directed by Zombie, will make its world premiere in the Midnight section at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival. The Sundance Film Festival takes place January 21-31 in Park City, Salt Lake City, Ogden and Sundance, Utah. The Sundance Film Festival is one of the world's premier places to debut new independent films.

"31" tells the story of five carnies in 1976 kidnapped on the morning of Halloween and held hostage in a remote industrial Hell. While trapped, they are forced to play a violent game called 31. The mission is to survive 12 hours against an endless gang of grease-painted maniacs.
