Glenn Danzig talks about Samhain reunion, next Danzig album

In a recent interview, Glenn Danzig talked about the reunion of Samhain, the band he was involved in after the Misfits‘ initial breakup in 1983, and offered an update on the next Danzig album, which will be the band’s first since 2010’s Death Red Sabaoth. Asked what made him bring Samhain back together to celebrate the the 30th anniversary of their debut album Initium, Glenn replied:

“We got an offer from the people at Riot Fest for a Samhain show. It just came out of the blue. They were doing their ten-year anniversary and they were doing the ten essential albums and they wanted Samhain to be a part of it with Slayer and Jane’s Addiction. A lot of bands. Just the fact that they would include the Samhain ‘Initium’ record as one of ten essential records, that’s pretty cool. So I talked to Steve in London and they were like, “Yeah let’s do it.” So we’re going to perform the whole ‘Initium’ record front-to-back. I think that’s the first time we’ve ever done it.”

On the long-awaited new Danzig record, Glenn stated, “I’m working on that right now. It seems like time slips out of your hands. You wake up and 2-3 years have passed. Danzig did a lot of touring on this last record, I think more touring than I’ve ever done before. It was spaced out over X amount of years but I think it’s time to sit back a little after these shows in the fall and try and get everything I’ve been doing out.”
