Get Danzig's New CD Before The Official Release Date
May 30, 2010
As if nine, special tour dates to usher in the release of 'Deth Red Sabaoth' wasn't enough, the Danzig June concerts trek just got even better. 'Deth Red Sabaoth' will be released on June 22, but those fans who have a ticket to any of the east coast dates scheduled prior to June 22 (see below) will be able to buy the new album at the show, before it's available in stores. But wait, there's more - those who purchase 'Deth Red Sabaoth' at one of these special Danzig shows will also receive - as long as they last - a collector's edition CD single with two versions of the album's first single, "On A Wicked Night," complete with exclusive art work. Only a limited number of the CD singles will be available, so once they're gone, they're gone.

On this special nine-date trek, Glenn Danzig will be joined onstage by long-time Danzig cohort guitarist Tommy Victor (Prong, Ministry), drummer Johnny Kelly (Type O Negative), and former Samhaim bandmate, bassist Steve Zing. Danzig plans to dig deep into his career-defining catalogue and perform tracks from 'Danzig', 'Lucifuge', 'How the Gods Kill', and on up to the present, including several new songs from 'Deth Red Sabaoth'. Support for the east coast dates will be Gorgeous Frankenstein, the band of original Misfits member Doyle, and Seventh Void, the band that includes Danzig/Type O Negative drummer Johnny Kelly and Type O guitarist Kenny Hickey. The west coast dates will feature All Shall Perish and Toxic Holocaust as support.

If this is still not enough Danzig for you, the 'Deth Red Sabaoth Limited Deluxe Edition' - only 666 are being manufactured - is now available as a presale exclusively online at this location. This box set, which is being sold for $66.66, includes the 'Deth Red Sabaoth' CD, a limited edition "On a Wicked Night" 7-inch, an instant download of 'Deth Red Sabaoth' available on the day of release, an autographed poster, and a stunning porcelain-like urn with exclusive artwork on all four sides.

Confirmed itinerary for Danzig's special nine-city tour is as follows:
6/15 - Norva- Norfolk, VA
6/16 - The Fillmore - Charlotte, NC
6/18 - Nokia Theatre - New York, NY
6/19 - Trocadero Theatre - Philadelphia, PA
6/21 - House of Blues - Boston, MA
6/24 - Knitting Factory - Boise, ID
6/25 - Knitting Factory - Reno, NV
6/26 - Nokia - Los Angeles, CA

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 1987
MEMBERS:
Glenn Danzig (vocals)
Tommy Victor (guitar)
Jerry Montano (bass)
Bevan Davies (drums)

Rarely does an artist have such a profoundly powerful audio and visual effect on so many facets of culture. From trailblazing the 70s punk movement with the Misfits, to inspiring a worldwide cross pollination of genres with the punk/goth/metal mastery of Samhain, to ushering in today’s hard rock era with DANZIG and pushing the boundaries of the visual medium through print and video, Glenn Danzig has been a consistently driving force in every corner of the underground and mainstream for the past quarter-century. Formed in the influential wake of his previous work, DANZIG was assembled in 1987 and released the self-titled Rick Rubin-produced debut the following year. In hindsight, the album proved to be a tolling bell that signaled the entrance of the rejuvenated rock movement that followed in the 90s and continues to gather strength today. Danzig’s sinister, no-holds-barred approach to blues-drenched agro-rock proved to be a perfect platform for Glenn’s enormous and instantly identifiable voice. Just like each of Glenn Danzig’s prior works, it took the rest of the world a while to finally catch up. In 1993, the platinum-selling Thrall: Demonsweat Live EP rekindled the debut’s haunting anthem "Mother" into a massive commercial radio and MTV success story. While the hit was completely unscripted, it succeeded in exposing millions to the sound of DANZIG, forever darkening the skies of modern rock music. The chilling and atmospheric majesty of 1990s Danzig II: Lucifuge uncovered a somewhat more diverse but equally powerful side of the band, a cutting-edge spirit that would be significantly furthered upon in the future. After a smoldering, doom-laden scorching from Danzig III: How The Gods Kill, it became quite apparent to anyone who hadn’t yet noticed that Glenn Danzig and complacency were mortal enemies. The ambitious and admirable industrial-tinged darkwave pulses of Danzig: IV:P and V: Blackacidevil challenged those who thought they had the band figured out, but the albums ultimately won both critical acclaim and new disciples.Another new and completely unforeseen audience also got a taste of Glenn’s evil pen when he composed the song "Thirteen" for that other ‘man in black’ Johnny Cash. In 2000, DANZIG’s 6:66 Satan’s Child brought yet another left-handed turn, as the band completely reworked his own vision of the hard rock blueprint. With DANZIG’s latest offering 7:77: I Luciferi, the legacy has not only been further cemented, it has been increased exponentially. 7:77 I Luciferi yields an explosive rock album, yet one containing enough twists and turns to satisfy the extremely diverse crowd that has assembled along their journey. With unforgiving heaviness, an infectious and uncompromising vocal delivery and supremely contagious choruses, those masses shall be imminently satisfied.The crushingly heavy rock slabs of ‘Black Mass’ and ‘Kiss The Skull’, the cold and compelling dynamics of ‘Dead Inside’ and ‘Liberskull’, and the sinuous surprises lurking within the first single and video ‘Wicked Pussycat’ help to form what can be considered the most complete, and all around best, DANZIG album to date. With a new audio masterpiece in place and numerous ongoing forays into the publishing world via his comic book entity Verotik, the voice and vision of Glenn Danzig will continue to thrive well into this new century. True darkness will never find a better representative.
