DANZIG Mainman Comments On New Guitarist

Glenn Danzig has issued a press release confirming that Joe Fraulob, guitarist for the Sacramento-based band DECONSTRUCT, has joined the DANZIG lineup for the "Blackest of the Black" tour that kicks off in San Diego on September 30 and wraps in Los Angeles on October 29.

"Joe really wanted to play with us, so he came to L.A. and auditioned," said Glenn Danzig. "He knew every song, knew all the leads note for note, he knew songs we didn't even tell him to learn. This guy is really, really good, he sounds incredible, and the fans are going to be blown away by him."

DANZIG's performance on all dates of the "Blackest of the Black" tour will feature former MISFITS' guitarist Doyle Von Frankenstein for a special 30-minute set of MISFITS classics. Doyle joined DANZIG on a handful of tour dates last winter (New York, Philadelphia, Boston) for "the closest thing to a MISFITS reunion you're going to see."
