Rob Zombie has told Loudwire that his new studio album -- his first since 2010's Hellbilly Deluxe 2 -- is done and being mixed, with a release scheduled for early 2013. Zombie said, "For what its worth -- and I know everybody says this -- I really think it's our best record ever . . . this is a very inspired record and I think it's the perfect combination of what I've done on my own and what White Zombie has done in the past combined. And the few people that have heard it had that reaction."
Zombie told us that it was hard for him to put how the album sounds into words: "It's different. I mean, I don't know if it's different. I'm not sure what it is, you know. It doesn't -- I can't tell what people will say. 'Cause sometimes I think something's really different and it sounds the same to people, or I think it sounds the same and people go, 'Oh, it's so different,' so I really don't know what to say. But I love it because it's the most creatively free record that I feel like I've made in a long, long time."
Zombie and Marilyn Manson kicked off their co-headlining Twins Of Evil tour over the weekend, with the show headed to Salt Lake City on Monday night (October 1st).
Korn singer Jonathan Davis had to drop out of his opening slot on the tour, for which he was going to perform as his DJ alter ego JDevil. His spot has been taken by DJ Starscream, a.k.a. Sid Wilson of Slipknot.
