During a recent interview with Sticks For Stones, John 5 (Rob Zombie, etc.) confirmed that he is working on a new live album titled “Live Invasion.” He said the following after being asked about his upcoming Australian shows:

“We are going to record the shows, because I’m working on a live record called ‘Live Invasion’. We’re going to do all the songs from ‘Invasion’ and record them, but you’re not going to hear just the songs from the latest album — you’ll hear a bunch of stuff. We do this really cool, long medley of, like, 60 riffs. It’s going to be a very special show, and people are going to be super-excited and really happy with how it turns out. We’re going to work really hard on it.”
