The call of the Zombie resounds once more. Freshly off a festival-driven Spring tour with veteran thrash metal outfit, Megadeth, Zombie gears up for round two. Friday, September 28, 2012 marks the bombastic launch of yet another aesthetically perverted Rob Zombie co-headlining tour, appropriately deemed “Twins of Evil,” with macabre partner in crime Marilyn Manson and direct opening support from Slipknot’s Sid Wilson as DJ Starscream. Zombie and Manson break loose in Phoenix, Arizona at the Ashley Furniture HomeStore Pavilion for the Desert Uprising festival powered by Rockstar Energy Drink and continue in sonic debauchery until the closing date of the U.S. leg in Dallas, Texas on Halloween night.
Zombie’s creative and ambitious nature effortlessly culminated into a slew of recent elusive releases all possessing an overwhelmingly intoxicating charm set to disconcert and mystify audiences choosing to indulge in his necessary evils. Free-spirited and imaginative, Zombie mows through the rest of 2012 with the release of a second remix album, “Mondo Sex Head,” in August, post-production and premiere of a fifth feature film, “The Lords of Salem,” birth of a new “period piece” movie project involving the social upheaval in 1970s Philadelphia through the scope of the Broad Street Bullies and Flyers hockey team, production of a fifth solo studio album that has been teasing fans since the drop of Hellbilly Deluxe 2 in February of 2010, and not to mention the monumental 28-date trek across the globe with Manson starting in early Fall.
The cult-classic culture Rob Zombie has stimulated, preserved, and catapulted continues to astound dedicated fans and innocent spectators alike. As any artistic mind can sympathize, Zombie has stated his fervent frustration with the lack of originality and sole exploitation of the mainstream in film and production studio industries. His prolific new projects break the collective fear of originality and stagnant creative process by intellectually immersing audiences in deeply provoking visual and sonic masterpieces. While not much has been released in regards to the new studio album or Flyers film, information on “The Lords of Salem” premiere and screening, “Mondo Sex Head” purchase, the “Twins of Evil” tour, and any previous releases accompany the other steadfast updates provided as necessary by Zombie through his social networking platforms on Facebook and Twitter.
