Rocker-turned-filmmaker Rob Zombie recently talked with The Wall Street Journal‘s John Jurgensenin a backstage interview about business strategy and surviving in the music industry. Check out the chat below.
Zombie recently completed work on his new album for an early 2013 release. The CD was produced by Bob Marlette, who has previously worked with everyone from BLACK SABBATH and ALICE COOPER to WILSON PHILLIPS and LYNYRD SKYNYRD.
The singer released a collection of remixes of various ZOMBIE tracks on August 7 called “Mondo Sex Head”. The remixes feature some of the hottest names in the growing electronic dance music scene, along with contributions from Jonathan Davis of KORN and Chino Moreno of DEFTONES.
Zombie last month released the first official trailer for his upcoming film “The Lords Of Salem”. The horror film, Zombie‘s fifth live-action feature, stars his wife Sheri Moon Zombie as a Massachusetts DJ who discovers that playing a mysterious record somehow activates a curse placed on her town by a coven of witches 300 years ago.
The genuinely creepy trailer offers a barrage of Satanic imagery, including witches burning at the stake, pagan animal masks, bizarre rituals and Sheri Moon Zombie straddling a demonic goat.
The film premiered in September at the Toronto International Film Festival, where it was picked up for distribution by Anchor Bay. The company will release it sometime in early 2013.
