ROB ZOMBIE On Upcoming Album: 'This Will Definitely Be Our Best Record Yet'

The wait is over, Zombie lovers! Rob Zombie has announced that he and his band of maniacs — John 5, Piggy D and Ginger Fish — will enter the studio on June 1 to begin recording the next chapter in the Zombie musical legacy. This new, as-yet-untitled CD is set for a late 2012 release.

"It has been way, and I mean way too long without any new music. I am dying to get back to it," said Zombie. "I have not felt this much excitement within the band since recording the first 'Hellbilly Deluxe' record almost 15 years ago. We have been working on tons of songs for quite some time and I can safely say this will definitely be our best record yet."

Before Lord Zombie and his band begin recording, they will hit the highway on a co-headline tour with metal legends MEGADETH, marking the first time the two bands have toured together since the early '90s.

"This tour should be a blast," said Zombie. "I haven't shared a bill with MEGADETH since way back in the early days of WHITE ZOMBIE, so this trek is long overdue."

Two new dates have been added to the U.S. trek — May 13 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, Maryland, and May 19 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in St. Louis, Missouri. The tour, which kicks off Friday, May 11 in Holmdel, New Jersey, will encompass high-profile appearances at several rock festivals, including Rock On The Range (May 20) that Zombie will co-headline with INCUBUS, and Rocklahoma (May 26) that Zombie will headline. Zombie will bring his full, explosive stage show out in full force on these dates, and audiences will get what they expect — a true rock and roll spectacle at its finest. Zombie will close all shows on the MEGADETH dates.

For these ZOMBIE/MEGADETH dates, Rob Zombie has teamed up with The One And Only to make available special VIP Golden Tickets. Two packages have been created to help insure that fans have an unforgettable experience at the show.

Package One includes a GA ticket, priority early entry to help guarantee a great spot for the show, a customized Zombie Bag, limited edition poster, an exclusive-to-the-tour T-shirt, a commemorative VIP laminate, and Golden Ticket Rep Concierge Service. Package Two includes everything in Package One, PLUS a meet-and-greet with Rob Zombie, a high-quality photograph with Rob, and a Rob Zombie autograph.

Zombie's latest film, "The Lords Of Salem", is currently in the final stages of post-production and promises to be Zombie's most insane film yet. "I am enjoying taking my time finishing this film. I hate rushing things at this stage of the process, so it is a luxury to take it slow and really fine-tune every part of the production," stated Zombie. No release date is set yet for the film.
