Rob Zombie - Finishing Up New Album

Good news for Rob Zombie fans. Rob Zombie is in the studio finishing up a new album to follow Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, released last year. The work is happening where he recorded the White Zombie album Astro Creep: 2000 - Songs Of Love, Destruction And Other Synthetic Delusions Of The Electric Head in 1994. The new album is expected to drop in 2015.

Zombie said in a recent interview about the upcoming album: "This record is just continued further down that road where it feels like you're inspired. You don't feel like, 'Ah God, we have to write some more songs.' Every song seems different and exciting, it seems like the old days. There are just certain songs that we just cannot wait to play live that you just know are going to be part of the show. You just have a weird sense of it. Kind of like when we finished 'Dead City Radio,' and that when we play it in the show it gets as big of a cheer as if we played 'Dragula' or some old song. You just have that moment in time where you feel like you've hit that same nerve with a song, and this record has a lot of that."

He continued: "I think, in a funny way, everyone is always complaining about the record business and complaining about illegal downloading. I don't care about any of that stuff. In fact, in a funny sort of way the fact that nobody buys records doesn't bother me. In fact, I feel like it's freed me. I never did anything to sell records, per se, but when you take that pressure away 100 percent, I swear to God you get more creative because it doesn't matter anymore. That's really been the case, I'm happy to give it away for free. I don't care. I just want to make it, play it, get crazy with it and I think this new climate is ? I hear a lot of musicians crying about it but for me, it's re-energized us."

Zombie posted the following picture and message on Facebook today:

Finishing up the new album in the exact same studio I recorded Astro-Creep 2000 in 20 years ago.
Crazy. Where does the time go?

Getting good vibes from this. Hope this means VRRV wasn't a fluke.

I loved the last album, so I am pretty excited for this actually. I love John 5's playing and if they really are more energized, hopefully we will get some heavy fast hard hitters with some real groove. Rob Zombie has needed some fresh inspiration for some time, and I think this pressure release and his band of talented musicians are at a great place now.
