“It’s been eight years since our last live album so we figured it was time for another,” says Zombie. “Actually we weren’t planning on it, but we recorded a few shows and they sounded really great so we thought ‘Fuck it, let’s get it out there.’”
Since 1997, Rob Zombie has achieved solo artist success that has elevated him to music god status (click here to read what our resident RZ expert has to say on the subject!) and has built a fanatical fan base with several multi-platinum and gold albums. As a rock icon and filmmaker with a unique vision, Zombie has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of his music and films. He has sold more than fifteen million albums worldwide and is the only artist to experience unprecedented success in both music and film as the writer/director of six feature films with a worldwide gross totaling more than $150 million. Zombie’s Halloween, released in 2007, earned the No. 1 spot at the box office in its opening weekend.
In 2013, Rob Zombie released his fifth solo album (which we were lucky enough to preview and review, so just click the link) Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor. Last year, Zombie released his first concert film, The Zombie Horror Picture Show, and his annual Great American Nightmare ultimate Halloween events successfully scared and entertained throngs of fans (FlashWounds included ~ check out just some of our coverage from Scottsdale here!) at both its Scottsdale, Arizona and Villa Park, Illinois locations.
Rob Zombie is currently in production for his seventh feature film, 31. Last year Rob Zombie broke more boundaries and hosted a hugely successful crowd funding campaign for the film. This month the campaign was relaunched (go here for more details) due to popular demand. “After wrapping up our first campaign we were bombarded with late requests to be part of the 31 action. So here we go again! Time to join the bloody clown mayhem! Filming starts in March so get ready for tons of exciting updates on what promises to be the most fucked up film of the year,” said Rob. To give you an idea of what’s in store, last May Rob told FW that 31 “… is for the hardcore fans who want it nasty and brutal.” Any yes, that’s exactly the kind of fans we are!
31 is in part a crowd-funded endeavor that will allow Zombie’s legions of followers to be involved from the ground up with this latest project. “I wish something like this had existed when I was a kid,” Zombie shared. “I would have killed to be part of so many movies. Even being involved in the smallest way would have been awesome.”
The seven-time GRAMMY® nominee is also working on his next studio album, to be released this year via Zodiac Swan/T-Boy/UMe. He will be embarking on a tour this summer as well.
