Guitar World will be spotlighting the "Blackest of the Black" tour with a Glenn Danzig/Doyle Von Frankenstein photo shoot and interview, to be included in the issue that hits the stands September 20. Revolver magazine is also doing a feature on Danzig and the "Blackest" tour. That issue will be available September 27.
In other news, the "Blackest of the Black" tour has now added a date in Houston, Texas on October 25 following the cancellation of the New Orleans show in the wake of the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina.
As previously reported, DANZIG recently announced the addition of guitarist Joe Fraulob (DECONSTRUCT) to the group's ranks. The 2005 "Blackest of the Black" tour, featuring headliners DANZIG alongside CHIMAIRA, BEHEMOTH, HIMSA, MORTIIS and THE AGONY SCENE, will kick off on September 30 in San Diego, California. 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."
The "Blackest of the Black" festival was organized by Danzig and debuted in the summer of 2003 with DANZIG, SUPERJOINT RITUAL, OPETH, NILE, LACUNA COIL and BEHEMOTH on the bill. More information is available at Danzig-Verotik.com.
