Glenn Danzig announces he will stop touring

Danzig frontman Glenn Danzig recently told Loudwire that he is going to stop touring after he finishes his current North America tour. He explains:

“I think this is going to be it. I’ll do some shows here or there, but I don’t think I’m going to tour anymore.”

Glenn did, however, say that he will continue playing shows but only intimately. He explains, “We might do some Danzig Legacy things, but they’ll be very intimate. Same thing if I do the Danzig Sings Elvis record, I want it to be more intimate where people can sit down and just watch the show … I know there are a couple of plans to go overseas and do some things there, but it will probably just be festivals.”

Danzig will release their long-awaited covers album Skeletons on November 27th. They also have an album due for release next year, which will be their first since 2010’s Death Red Sabaoth.



Glenn Danzig announces covers album “Skeletons”

Danzig frontman Glenn Danzig has announced he will be releasing a new solo album titled Skeletons on November 27th. Here’s what Glenn had to say about the record which will feature covers of songs by a wide range of artists, including Elvis Presley, ZZ Top, and Black Sabbath:

“These are my skeletons You may or may not know that I dig these songs. You could say that some of this music is the actual basis and skeleton of what I listened to growing up—ultimately informing the kind of music I like. It’s the foundation. If you took Elvis and Sabbath out of my life, I probably wouldn’t be the Glenn Danzig you know! I’m glad both sides are represented on this record.”

Danzig recording material for upcoming album

New Danzig album due next fall, covers album due in March

According to Examiner.com, the new album from Glenn Danzig’s eponymous band Danzig is due for release in the fall of next year, and his long-awaited full-length covers effort is due in March. He has also been working on an EP of Elvis Presley covers. Asked if there is any other musical ground that he is interested in covering, Glenn replied, with a laugh:

“No, probably ‘Danzig Sings Elvis’ will be about it. I’m pretty lucky in that a long time ago I started my own label. So I can just put out stuff when I want as long as I have a good distributor and no one can kick me off my own label. So I make sure that it sounds like what people expect Danzig to sound like and hopefully they’ll like the product when it comes out. That’s really all that I do.”

Danzig (the band) last released Death Red Sabaoth in 2010 through Evilive Records.



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.”

Misfits reunion with orignal members (including Glenn Danzig) in the works?

 

Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein recently told Alternative Press that he is intent on reuniting their original singer Glenn Danzig (who is currently in Danzig) for a tour and possible new album, stating:

“I’m the only one that’s gonna get the original lineup back together. So I think I’m going to work on that, and hopefully I can pull the two bulls together and get them to fucking stop.”

He continued, “You know what? I’ve just decided this week that I am going to make an attempt, and I wanna do it. I’ll put what I’m doing right on the fucking side. I’ll go do it tomorrow.”

Doyle also talked about previous meetings he, Danzig and Jerry Only had in 2002, where they discussed a Misfits reunion, which never came to fruition. He states, “It didn’t happen and it’s a shame. It’s stupid that we’re not doing it. It would be huge.”



Glenn Danzig orders audience to punch guy recording show with his cell phone

During Danzig‘s show at The Cuban Club in Ybor City, Florida last Wednesday, frontman Glenn Danzig did something unsurprisingly douchey… Upon noticing a gentleman in the audience was filming the band during their song “Blood and Tears” on his cell phone, Glenn ordered the crowd to “punch that fuckin’ asshole right there.”

Some are saying there were signs posted around the venue prohibiting cell phone use during the show, which is why Glenn got pissed when he saw the guy recording; others, like Alyssa Michelle are saying otherwise:

“There were MANY fans there taking photos or recording videos at this show, including myself, and Danzig did not order the crowd to punch any of us in the face. Just saying, the guy who was singled out was not the only one doing this throughout the night (OF COURSE people, its 2013. everybody is going to want to capture a moment or two of an amazing concert on their smart phone) and I did not see any signs that said no recording.”

Check out the video that started all of this nonsense and came to an end with the camera man allegedly being rushed by a security guard (and getting kicked out of the show) below.
