There’s a new Rob Zombie live album in the works and it’s a special one for White Zombie fans. Zombie revealed on Instagram he’s currently working on putting together a live LP of his 2016 Riot Fest set where he performed the White Zombie album, Astro-Creep: 2000, in its entirety. Working with Chris “Zeuss” Harris for the mixing process, Zombie posted video footage of a speaker playing some of his performance from “Electric Head, Pt. 2.” While there’s no official release date, the rocker hopes to have the LP prepped for later this year.
Rob Zombie was originally the frontman for White Zombie. They released four albums before disbanding in 1997. Zombie launched his successful solo career the following year with his debut, Hellbilly Deluxe. Since then, Zombie’s been bombarded with requests to get the band back together. After his performance of their fourth album at the Chicago festival, Zombie responded to fans on Instagram who kept beginning him for a reunion.
"I have many legit reasons [for not wanting to reform White Zombie]. Just because you don't know them does not mean they don't exist. Everything is not everybody's business."
Rob Zombie was recently announced as one of the headliners of Monster Energy’s Rock Alliance Festival. Other acts on the bill include Marilyn Manson, Five Finger Death Punch, Halestorm, Gojira, and Mastodon. The festival takes place on Oct. 7 in Camden, NJ. Tickets go on sale May 24.
