Danzig have announced a short tour with Corrosion of Conformity ahead of their appearance at Riot Fest 2017, where they'll perform their seminal album Danzig III: How the Gods Kill in its entirety to mark its twenty-fifth anniversary. The seven-show trek, which begins September 7 in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire, includes stop-offs in Philadelphia, Cleveland and Detroit, among other cities. Danzig and company haven't elaborated on whether September's outing will be part of their How The Gods Kill anniversary festivities, or just another lap behind last month's album Black Laden Crown. For now, all we can do is speculate, and check out the itinerary below.
Speaking with Revolver last month, Danzig offered fans a taste of what to expect from their How The Gods Kill tribute shows, and detailed his personal connection to the classic album. "We still do a track or two [from that album] in our regular set," he explained, "but this time we're gonna do five or six songs from it. That album is a personal favorite of mine. It was the first Danzig record to crack the Top 20 on Billboard; It was also the first record of ours that I produced, and it broke us massively over in Europe; It was a really good record that people responded positively to." He also plans to bring back old props from the band's original tour behind the record: "If you're coming to the show, we're gonna have the gigantic gargoyles," he revealed, "and I think I have the old backdrop, too."
