Rob Zombie is getting ready for this Friday’s (August 28) release of his fourth movie as a screenwriter and director, “Halloween II”, doing press interviews and attending the premiere on Monday (August 24) in Los Angeles. But Zombie somehow managed to find time in the past year to also make a new record, and told The Pulse of Radio as much as he could about it. “Still figuring out the title,” he said. “The release date is November 10th. It’s a great record. It’s probably my favorite record ever, because for the first time since like the last WHITE ZOMBIE record, I made a record with a band. You know, all my solo records have been real solo records, like, you know, there’s pictures of people on the record but they didn’t play on the record. This has been the same four guys now for four years and it’s all of us really, we really were in a room jamming and making something, and more special things come out that way.”
Zombie’s third solo album, “Educated Horses”, came out in 2006.
Before embarking on a solo career in 1998, Zombie recorded four studio albums with WHITE ZOMBIE.
“Halloween II” is the follow-up to Zombie’s successful 2007 remake of the original 1978 horror classic. His take on “Halloween” earned more than $60 million at the box office, his biggest haul as a filmmaker to date.
His adult-oriented animated movie, “The Haunted World of El Superbeasto”, will hit DVD and cable next month.
