"On a Wicked Night", a brand new song from DANZIG, is available for streaming below. The track comes off the band's first new studio album in six years, "Deth Red Sabaoth", which is due on June 22 via evilive/The End Records. The CD is an 11-track collection penned by Danzig, and is laced with Glenn's lycanthropic growls and blues-infected wailing. Tracks, including "Black Candy" and "The Revengeful", emit a spectral glow to rival the highest points in Danzig's colossal discography. Part I of the exquisite two-part "Pyre of Souls" opens with acoustic guitar, haunting piano, Glenn's plainsong vocal, and an almost dirge-like feel; Part II explodes with electric guitars and a driving, mesmerizing cadence.
The limited deluxe-edition box set contains the following and is limited to an infernal 666 copies:
* Stunning porcelain-like urn with exclusive art on all four sides, aprox. 11 x 8"
* CD version of "Deth Red Sabaoth", housed in a beautiful gatefold digipak
* Limited-edition "On A Wicked Night" 7"
* Instant download of "Deth Red Sabaoth" available the day of release
* Autographed poster
Glenn Danzig, at the forefront of the hardcore/dark metal movement for nearly three decades, will embark on a special nine-city concert trek that will kick off in Norfolk, Virginia on June 15. The dates will feature long-time Danzig cohort, guitarist Tommy Victor (PRONG, MINISTRY), drummer Johnny Kelly (TYPE O NEGATIVE) and former SAMHAIN bandmate, bassist Steve Zing. Support for the east coast dates will be GORGEOUS FRANKENSTEIN, the band of original MISFITS member Doyle, and SEVENTH VOID, the band that includes of DANZIG/TYPE O NEGATIVE drummer Johnny Kelly and TYPE O guitarist Kenny Hickey.
DANZIG plans to dig deep into his career-defining catalogue and perform tracks from "Danzig", "Lucifuge", "How the Gods Kill", and on up to the present, including several new songs from "Deth Red Sabaoth". "DANZIG fans have their own favorites from throughout the years," said Glenn, "and I hope the set list we put together will satisfy everyone."
In addition to the upcoming "Deth Red Sabaoth", Danzig has just published a book of select, previously unreleased MISFITS, DANZIG, and SAMHAIN lyrics, titled "Hidden Lyrics of the Left Hand" (Verotik). The book features illustrations by Simon Bisley, who has painted numerous album covers for DANZIG and collaborated on many Verotik comic titles.
Glenn Danzig has received many titles, from the Godfather of Dark Metal to a punk pioneer to a man of integrity, but most agree that over his near-30-year career, his intense musical and lyrical statements have left a permanent mark on rock music. He is a gifted songwriter, and his songs have been covered by such diverse artists as JOHNNY CASH, METALLICA, GUNS N' ROSES, and ROY ORBISON, just to name a few. His "13", originally written for Johnny Cash and then recorded for Glenn's own "Satan's Child", was the opening song in last year's box office smash and Golden Globe winner "The Hangover". Danzig's music is dark, gothic, and haunting, and continues to influence generation after generation of musicians and music fans across the globe.
