JOHN 5 To Welcome 2016 With Release Of 'Black Grass Plague' Song, Video
Former MARILYN MANSON and current ROB ZOMBIE guitarist John 5 (real name: John William Lowery) will welcome 2016 with a song called "Black Grass Plague". There will be a video release on the same day to accompany the track. The clip was filmed this past summer with John 5's buddies from THE CREATURES — drummer Rodger Carter and bassist Ian Ross —in North Hollywood, California. Directing and producing the video was Coffin Case founder Jonny Coffin, who previously worked with John 5 on the mini-series "Tales From The Crossroads" as well as the DVD for "God Told Me To" in 2012.
John 5 celebrated 11 years of solo work with a "Greatest Hits Vol. 1" album. The set includes a live DVD, featuring footage of John 5 in concert. John 5 also released three brand new singles, the first of which came out in October.
John 5 last month completed the "Mad Monster Tour" featuring his band JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES. Select dates also featured former MISFITS member Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein and his band DOYLE. JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES kicked off the tour with a special show in Ramona, California on November 4.
JOHN 5 & THE CREATURES toured in support of John 5's eighth solo album, "Careful With That Axe", which was made available on August 12, 2014 through 60 Cycle Hum. The effort features Rodger Carter on drums and Matt Bissonette on bass.
