Rob Zombie says that his new studio album will tentatively arrive in February 2020. The disc will be issued via the iconic rocker's new record label, Nuclear Blast Records.
"The record's definitely finished and I think it's the best record we've ever made," Rob tells NME. "It's a very big, crazy and complex record that I'm really excited to finally be able to release. I just had to get everything with [the] '3 From Hell' [movie] completely finished before we got into that, but my plan now is to start shooting some big videos for the album around January so that we can release it early next year. I'm hoping for a February 2020 release."
Earlier this month, John 5 told Revolver that Rob's new album is "heavy, very heavy. It's just a heavy ZOMBIE record with great hooks. It's very, very musical, and a hard-hitting ZOMBIE record. I think people are really gonna dig it. I'm a ZOMBIE fan, and if I heard it, I'd be like, 'Oh my God, this is brutal.' I'm really excited about it."
Asked if this is his favorite of ZOMBIE's records that he has played on, the guitarist said: "Well, this is definitely the most musical, meaning there are a lot of different changes, and it's very unorthodox how the structure is, you know? I have to be careful because I know people will take a little snippet of what I'm saying, so we'll go with a very heavy, hooky ROB ZOMBIE record."
Last year, John 5 compared ROB ZOMBIE's upcoming album to THE BEATLES' groundbreaking LP "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band", saying that it is "by far the best Zombie record that he's ever done." He added: "A lot of people say, 'Oh, it's just our greatest record,' and I don't say that. Whatever I say is so honest when I'm doing interviews. So I think it's our best record."
2016's "The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser" was the second consecutive effort to feature Zombie and John 5 alongside bassist Piggy D. and drummer Ginger Fish.
