If you’ve ever stepped into a Hot Topic — don’t be scared to admit it — you’ve undoubtedly experienced the influence of Glenn Danzig. Their locations serve as the main source for teenage punk-enthusiasts to obtain their mandatory Misfits’ tee. While many sport the Misfits skull unaware of the outfit’s musical output, Danzig has developed a cult following equal to any of the classic b-horror movies he references.
30+ years into his career, Danzig continues to be rooted in the occult, but his sound has morphed into a two-headed beast of blues and goth-metal. This transition is epitomized by Danzig’s newest single “On a Wicked Night”. Thanks to our friends at TwentyFourBit, you can check out the song below.
“On a Wicked Night” is the first release from Danzig’s upcoming album Deth Red Sabaoth — yah…we don’t know what it means either. Due out June 22nd through Danzig’s personal imprint Evilive Records, the Jersey born musician served as the album’s producer, songwriter, lead singer, bassist, and part-time drummer. He was supported in the studio by Tommy Victor (guitar), Type O Negative’s Johnny Kelly (drums), and ex-Samhaim bassist Steve Zing. This foursome will take to the road later this month to help promote the release. You can view the complete tracklisting and tour dates below.
In pure Danzig-style, he is releasing 666 copies of a limited deluxe edition Deth Red Sabaoth box set for $66.66. Head here to view the display worthy packaging and pre-order one of the remaining sets. Tickets to all the shows can be purchased through Ticketmaster.
