John 5 Working On New Live Album “Live Invasion”

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.”

David Lee Roth Says His Unreleased Album With John 5 Will Surface One Day

During a recent interview with Meltdown of Detroit’s WRIF, David Lee Roth (Van Halen) confirmed that his unreleased album with John 5 (Rob Zombie, etc.) will be surfacing at some point. The singer said the following:

“It will. There’s been a revision of things, and I can start making real plans and start marching into the future. And, of course, you’ll start hearing that material. This is material that we wrote variously for me solo and for VAN HALEN, and it’s quite a bank of stuff.”

However, it’s worth noting that release plans are still pending and that Roth is currently focusing on “getting out on the road.”
