Danzig Unveils New Reality Show, Announces Tour

His ego still reeling from being leveled by North Side Kings singer Danny Marianinho nearly two years ago (a working video link can be found on Google Videos), Glenn Dazig has reportedly inked a deal with an undisclosed TV network for a new reality show. The show seems to be a combination of "Battle for Ozzfest" and "The Contender," in that Danzig is offering up a supporting spot on this year's tour to the band who can field a member that can knock him out in the [boxing] ring.

Bands rumored to be involved in this competition include:

Drowning Pool
The Esoteric
Avenged Sevenfold
Fear Before The March Of Flames
Sicks Deep
Paria
Glassjaw
Atreyu

And of course North Side Kings

Bands apparently were under the impression that this would be a musical competition like "Battle For Ozzfest." Atreyu and Avengend Sevenfold, who are rumored to have been heavily recruited by the show organizers and Danzig himself.

"They've leveraged every possible thing they can, from touring restrictions to a hefty fine for breaking the contract, so once we found out what this [show] was really about, we were already trapped," said Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows. It's all about stroking [Glenn] Danzig's ego. I mean, why else would he was a bunch of young metalcore and emo bands on here?"

"Well, we should still get some good exposure out of the TV time. We hope they play some of our music at least," said Dan, from Atreyu. "I'll be taking one for the team here. It's ok, we're all used to getting beat up anyway," he reflected, almost to himself.

Danny Marianinho commented as well. "I knew what the score was when we got the call. He's probably been working out for the past two years, hardly touring at all. I feel sorry for those other bands, but I'm not worried for myself. I know it'll still only takes one punch and he'll crumble like a broken toy."

Danzig had only swearing to offer after apparently being offended by an intial question asking if he was trying to boost his ego.

Guns N Roses are said to have been tapped for the show's theme song, having re-recorded a version of "Get In The Ring" with guest vocals by Danzig.

Fittingly, this year's tour has also been renamed "The Blackest Eye" tour. Show network and times and tour dates to be announced shortly.

I guess he needs to prove that he such a tough guy. I would have more respect if he just admitted he got whooped. This show seems really awful, but really worth watching. Lol a 45ish year old Danzig boxing 22 year old emo kids.

I'm still weighing the options of this being an april fools joke or just a sad statement on how bad "reality" TV has really gotten.
