Loser, the former side project of Rob Zombie guitarist and ex-Marilyn Manson guitarist John 5, has updated their MySpace player with four new tracks that would have appeared on their debut album 'Just Like You'. The band split and were dropped from Island Records before the album was released after John 5 decided to continue touring with Rob Zombie.
Drummer Glendon Crain went on to join Godhead, vocalist Joe Grah is currently in South of Earth which also includes former Filter guitarist Geno Lenardo.
Wind-up Records, in conjunction with Twentieth Century Fox and Marvel Enterprises has announced the complete track listing for the July 5, 2005 soundtrack Fantastic Four – The Album. The soundtrack is not particularly heavy, but features several hard rock bands (hence the reason for inclusion here). The soundtrack’s musical scope covers rock, hip hop and pop with new songs from platinum and gold recording artists including Velvet Revolver (their first new music since the release of their double-platinum album, Contraband), Ben Moody featuring Anastacia, Sum 41, and Taking Back Sunday.
Taking Back Sunday wrote the song “Error Operator” for the movie, the soundtrack and the Fantastic Four video game created by Activision. Two songs introduce newly formed groups; Loser (former Marilyn Manson guitarist/writer John 5) and T.F.F., (a one time collaboration featuring Brody Dalle of the Distillers, Chris Cester of Jet, Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeah's, and Dolf de Datsun of the Datsuns). Also of note is the stateside debut of the enormously popular Japanese act Orange Range. Additional songs were contributed by Alter Bridge, Lloyd Banks, Submersed, Breaking Point and others. The lead single and first music video from Fantastic Four – The Album is “Everything Burns” by Ben Moody featuring Anastacia.

Former MARILYN MANSON guitarist John 5 has announced that he will be playing guitar for ROB ZOMBIE on the Hot Topic Second stage at this year's Ozzfest.
"I'm totally estatic about having the opportunity to play with Rob on Ozzfest!" John 5 said in a statement. "He has been one of my favorite artists for the longest time. I had the opportunity to play with him a few weeks back, and never thought that I would have the chance to share the stage with him playing the ZOMBIE songs we all know and love!"
When asked what this meant for LOSER, John's new band, he said, "This will not affect LOSER in any way. We are still pressing forward with writing new material for our debut album."
Commented Zombie: "I haven't really officially said this yet but once again I will be hitting the road with Ozzfest. This time I've decided to headline the second stage. Main is a drag, man. It's so uptight that it is almost a bore. I can't wait to get away from the fucking seat and play to all the maniacs that are always trapped up on the lawn. This should be insane.
"There are some lineup changes this time around. John 5 of ex-MARILYN MANSON fame will be handling guitar duties this time out. I'm totally stoked about this because this guy is a fucking shredder. I played 'Thunder Kiss 65' with him at The Arrowhead Pond Arena for a benefit a couple weeks back and it never sounded so fucking good."
