Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 recently went on the Talk Toomey podcast to spill some choice details from the upcoming album, which he claims is "the best Zombie record to date — better than White Zombie."

The band have been working on the record since August 2017, and it seems the time has come for the completed album to see the light of day. John 5 tells host Joshua Toomey, "The Zombie album is wrapped, mixed, mastered, and heavy, and hooky, and musical, and badass ... he went nuts on this one. I'm telling you, it's the best Zombie record you guys will hear."

John 5 goes on to promise Zombie and his crew will deliver on all fronts for the record, saying "a big tour" and new music videos are on the way. Zombie is currently directing his next horror flick Three From Hell as well, the sequel to his 2005 cult classic The Devil's Rejects


John 5 has been espousing the gospel of the release for many months now, telling Revolver last March, "I'm telling you it's by far — I can say this because I'm a fan — it's by far his best work. It's incredible." The recording process took place at Zombie's home in Connecticut, with some finishing touches happening in Los Angeles. No singles or release date have been announced yet, but it looks to be an interesting follow-up to 2016's The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser to say the least, as foretold in this Instagram post from last year featuring 5 "laying down some banjo."
