Rob Zombie Information
Massachusetts native Rob Zombie has dipped his feet into just about every form of artistic expression there is. While he began his venture as a rock star, Zombie has since become an accomplished film director, screenwriter, producer and most recently comic book artist. As the front man of White Zombie, he accrued the stage name â€œRob Zombieâ€ and created riff-based guitar rock influenced by horror films and the surreal. While Zombie performed with the band from 1985 to 1998 before venturing out into a solo career after collaboration with Alice Cooper. He currently has four feature length films under his belt with two more currently in production.
Zombieâ€™s latest addition to his solo catalog is Hellbilly Deluxe 2: Noble Jackals, Penny Dreadfuls and the Systematic Dehumanization of Cool (2010), released this past February. The first Hellbilly was the first album he released as a solo artist and plays as a companion album to the original. Although the album was completed over a year ago, Zombieâ€™s simultaneous work on the remake Halloween 2 overshadowed the albumâ€™s release. The album debuted at no. 8 on the Billboard chart, selling 49,000 copies in its first week of release. A reissue of the album will be released this September with new artwork and a new version of "The Man Who Laughs" and a bonus DVD containing a touring documentary titled "Transylvanian Transmissionsâ€. Rob Zombie will be performing at the DCU Center in Worcester, MA on October 16th after playing three shows with Alice Cooper.
