Rob Zombie Signs With Nuclear Blast Records

Rob Zombie has signed a new deal with Nuclear Blast Records and is planning to release his new album through the label in 2019. He said the following:

Rob Zombie On His New Album: “It’s The Best Record We’ve Made”

During a recent interview with Loudwire, Rob Zombie talked a bit about his upcoming album. According to the singer, this is “the best record [they’ve] made.”

Zombie said the following:

“The record’s done. It’ll get out next year, early next year. I think this and so do the guys in the band — I think it’s the best record we’ve made. Parts of it are the heaviest, parts are the weirdest, it’s the most complex record we’ve ever made, but at the same time it’s always very catchy and listenable, but it’s the most intricately structured record.

I know everybody says, ‘Oh, our new record’s the best record. Blah, blah, blah.’ No one gives a shit. I never want to look at things like, ‘Oh, you know, the best shit we did was long ago.’ A lot of bands these days have given up on making records it seems. I don’t understand that.”

He also added the following about the songs:

“There are those songs that go in a direction we’ve never even gone near before. Personally, I like records that are very varied in sound. Not just like, ‘Oh, here’s 12 super heavy tracks,’ and they’re all the same tempo. I like records that are all over the place. That’s why I think my favorite Beatles record was always ‘The White Album‘, because it was all over the place.”

Rob Zombie & Marilyn Manson Cover The Beatles’ “Helter Skelter”

Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson have shared their cover of The Beatles “Helter Skelter“ as they get ready to kickoff their co-headlining Twins Of Evil Tour in Detroit, MI tonight (July 11). The track was produced by Zeuss and it can be found below:

Zombie told Rolling Stone the following when asked how the idea of recording the cover came up:

“We had been talking about doing something together for these shows — that he should come onstage during my set and we’d do a song. But we couldn’t think of what song. After we talked, later that night I was home and I just thought, The obvious song is “Helter Skelter”… It’s so obvious that neither one of us thought of it! And then I figured, well, rather than us just doing it onstage, why don’t we take it one step further and record it and put a new spin on it? That way, rather than just doing some impromptu jam together, now the fans will go, “Oh, there’s the song I’ve already heard, and now they’re doing it.”

He also had the following to say when asked about their approach:

“Well, my thought when it comes to covers is to stick close to the original. Because in my mind, what’s the actual point of doing a cover if no one can recognize it? So with our version, I think it varies as much as it can from the original, but not so much that it becomes a different song.”

He then added the following when asked about the recording session:

“We used my band, and Manson and I did our parts separately. I was on the East Coast and he was in, like, Spain or something, on tour. We were communicating the whole time, but it wasn’t possible to get in the studio together.”
