The long-awaited first live album from Rob Zombie has arrived. A brain-bashing, soul-shaking sonic earthquake, Zombie – Live (Geffen Records/UMe), released October 23, 2007, in both clean and explicit versions, spans songs from the hard rocker’s entire career.
Recorded in 2006 during the tour supporting the Educated Horses album, which hit #5 on the Pop chart, Zombie Live finds Zombie leading a supercharged band featuring guitarist John 5, bassist Piggy D, drummer Tommy Clufetos and was produced by long-time co-writer and producer Scott Humphrey.
Zombie – Live includes the concert’s renditions of the Best Hard Rock Performance Grammy-nominated “Thunder Kiss ‘65” and “Black Sunshine” from White Zombie’s 1992 major label debut La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol. 1, which went Top 40 and double platinum. “Super Charger Heaven,” “Creature Of The Wheel” and “More Human Than Human,” also Grammy nominated for Best Hard Rock Performance, were first heard on White Zombie’s 1995 Top 10, double platinum Astro-Creep: 2000 Songs Of Love, Destruction And Other Synthetic Delusions Of The Electric Head.
From Rob Zombie’s 1998 solo debut, the Top 5, triple platinum Hellbilly Deluxe: 13 Tales Of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside The Spookshow International, are “Superbeast,” “Living Dead Girl,” “Demonoid Phenomenon” and “Dragula.” Songs from 2001’s Top 10 and platinum The Sinister Urge are “Demon Speeding,” “Dead Girl Superstar” and “Never Gonna Stop (The Red Red Kroovy).” The latest songs hail from Educated Horses: “Sawdust In The Blood,” “American Witch,” “Let It All Bleed Out” and “Lords Of Salem.” Heard too are the title songs from the first two feature films directed by Zombie, 2000’s cult smash hit House Of 1000 Corpses and 2004’s critically acclaimed The Devil’s Rejects.
Rob Zombie unleashed his terrifying remake of the classic film Halloween on August 31, 2007, premiering on more than 2000 screens. Zombie, who previously wrote and directed The Devil’s Rejects (2000) and House Of 1000 Corpses (2004), offers an entirely new take on the highly successful series of Halloween films that began in 1978. As a recording artist Rob Zombie has sold over 15 million albums worldwide and continues to be one of Geffen Record’s top selling artists.
The DVD companion to Zombie – Live will be available in the Spring of 2008 and will include bonus footage.
