John 5 spoke to Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF radio station about the status of Rob Zombie‘s long-awaited new studio album. The disc will be issued via the iconic rocker’s new record label, Nuclear Blast Records.
“You will be seeing something soon,” John 5 said. “That’s all I say. Very, very, very soon. It’s coming very soon… We’re excited. I’m more excited than anyone, that’s for sure.”
In September 2019, Rob told NME that his new LP was “the best record” he had ever made. It’s a very big, crazy and complex record that I’m really excited to finally be able to release,” he said.
Asked if this is his favorite of ZOMBIE‘s records that he has played on, John 5 told told Revolver: “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.”
Back in 2018, 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.
