Rob Zombie will release his sixth solo studio album, The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser, on April 29 via UMe/T-Boy Records. The Electric Warlock… marks Rob Zombie’s first solo studio album since 2013’s Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, which debuted at number 7 on the Billboard 200. Produced by Zeuss and recorded at Goathouse studios, this new record is a full return to form by Zombie. The album features John 5 (Guitar), Piggy D (Bass) and Ginger Fish (Drums) with provocative art provided by Alex Horley. To celebrate the release of the album, Zombie has made a direct-to-fan presale available on FuckinginaUFO.com where fans can pre-order the new record and collectible merchandise, as well as purchase exclusive tickets and VIP Meet & Greet bundles for the new tour and a chance to be in The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser movie. Zombie has achieved great solo artist success with several multi-platinum and gold albums. Zombie has sold more than fifteen million albums worldwide, and is the only artist to experience unprecedented success in both music and film as the writer/director of six feature films.
Korn built an immortal bond in 1993 the first time Jonathan Davis, James “Munky” Shaffer, Reginald “Fieldy” Arvizu, and Brian “Head” Welch decided to make music as a unit. They shed blood, sweat, and tears in the studio and on stage, fashioning an undeniable and unique sound that would permanently alter the course of rock music. After six seminal releases, two Grammy Awards, countless sold out shows, and selling 35 million albums worldwide, Head left the group in 2004 to face the demons of addiction. Korn soldiered on, adding drummer Ray Luzier in 2007 and releasing four more full-length releases. In 2012, a triumphant and tear-filled reunion happened on stage as the group headlined the Carolina Rebellion Festival with Head reprising his legendary part on “Blind”. The initial bond came back into focus, and it was time for their next studio album, The Paradigm Shift, which seamlessly melds the group’s ever-present spirit of innovation with their signature metallic catharsis, paving the way for the future yet again. In 2014, Korn started their 20th anniversary celebrations, playing their critically acclaimed self-titled debut album in its entirety. The shows were so well received, the group continued the festivities into 2015, performing the record on tour to fans around the world. At present, Korn is back in the studio hard at work on their twelfth album set for release in 2016.
