The wait is over, Zombie lovers! Rob Zombie has announced that he and his band of maniacs - John 5, Piggy D and Ginger Fish - will enter the studio on June 1 to begin recording the next chapter in the Zombie musical legacy. This new, as yet untitled CD is set for a late 2012 release.

"It has been way, and I mean way too long without any new music. I am dying to get back to it," said Zombie. "I have not felt this much excitement within the band since recording the first Hellbilly Deluxe record almost 15 years ago. We have been working on tons of songs for quite some time and I can safely say this will definitely be our best record yet."

Before Lord Zombie and his band begin recording, they will hit the highway on a co-headline tour with metal legends Megadeth, marking the first time the two bands have toured together since the early 90s.

"This tour should be a blast," said Zombie. "I haven't shared a bill with Megadeth since way back in the early days of White Zombie, so this trek is long overdue."

Two new dates have been added to the U.S. trek - May 13 at the Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD, and May 19 at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre in St. Louis, MO. The tour, which kicks off Friday, May 11 in Holmdel, NJ, will encompass high-profile appearances at several rock festivals, including Rock On The Range (May 20) that Zombie will co-headline with Incubus, and Rocklahoma (May 26) that Zombie will headline. Zombie will bring his full, explosive stage show out in full force on these dates, and audiences will get what they expect - a true rock and roll spectacle at its finest. Zombie will close all shows on the Megadeth dates.

Zombie's latest film, "The Lords of Salem," is currently in the final stages of post-production and promises to be Zombie's most insane film yet. "I am enjoying taking my time finishing this film. I hate rushing things at this stage of the process, so it is a luxury to take it slow and really fine-tune every part of the production," stated Zombie. No release date is set yet for the film.

Confirmed dates for the Rob Zombie/Megadeth U.S. tour are as follows:

MAY

11 PNC Bank Arts Center, Holmdel, NJ
12 Toyota Pavilion, Scranton, PA
13 Merriweather Post Pavilion, Columbia, MD NEW!
16 Stage AE, Pittsburgh, PA
18 The Deltaplex, Grand Rapids, MI
19 Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, St. Louis, MO NEW!
20 Rock On The Range, Columbus, OH
22 La Crosse Center, La Crosse, WI
24 Tyson Center, Sioux City, IA
25 Hartman Arena, Wichita, KS
26 Rocklahoma, Pryor, OK

I don't give a sh** about Rob, but I'd love to see Megadeth before Dave decides metal is too not Christian for him...

Whoa there Lumpus, "House if a Thousand Corpses" was a piece of pure, twisted genius. Admittedly, the standard of his movies has gone radically down since then but still, credit where its due. Dunno if he's a douche tho, never met him.

How can ask if Zombie is the biggest douche on stage in an article that also includes MegaDave?.. Love both these bands, but with Dave's new Christian attitude I've lost quite a bit of respect for him. I've always known Dave was a douche, but now it's just on a different level.
Oh, and in my opinion Zombie's movies are good if you have the right expectations when going to see them
