ROB ZOMBIE ISSUES LYRIC VIDEO FOR NEW SINGLE

Rob Zombie has posted a lyric video online for "Dead City Radio And The New Gods Of Supertown," the first single from his upcoming album Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor. Being a Zombie video, of course, it's not just words on a screen, as spinning records, large rats and other bizarre visuals accompany Zombie's equally stream-of-consciousness lyrics.

Zombie told us what actually inspired the tune: "I like listening to rock radio. So I was listening to the radio and I realized that every song they were playing was by somebody who was dead. And it just kept going. It was like, 'Here's Hendrix,' you know, and 'Here's AC/DC but wth Bon Scott!' and 'Here's Lynyrd Skynyrd!' -- they weren't doing it on purpose, it was just, I was like, 'Oh my God.' And I thought about all the acts that they were playing and I go, 'Within about 10 more years, every single act on the radio will be by people that are dead.' That's really kind of disturbing, and that's what gave me the idea."

Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor is due out on April 23rd. Other tracks include "Lucifer Rising," "The Girl Who Loved The Monsters" and "Behold! The Pretty Filthy Creatures," along with a cover of the Grand Funk Railroad hit "We're An American Band."

Zombie's new movie, The Lords Of Salem, opens in limited release on April 19th, with the soundtrack arriving on the 16th.

Zombie will receive an honorary award at the upcoming Revolver Golden Gods Awards, which will take place in Los Angeles on May 2nd.

Zombie and Five Finger Death Punch will headline the lineup for the 2013 Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival, which kicks off its sixth year on June 29th in San Bernardino, California. Tickets go on sale Friday (March 22nd).
