Danzig said he'd like to do a new record to be out late 2015 or early 2016 back in October of last year. He also said in the same statement he'd like to do a bunch of Elvis covers for a solo release as well, so we weren't sure when the Danzig record would happen. Now we have an answer- it's happening at this very moment in time! According to the Danzig Facebook:
"DANZIG in LA recording studio yesterday with guitarist Tommy Victor & drummer Johnny Kelly laying down tracks for upcoming DANZIG record tentatively scheduled for late 2015 or early 2016 release. Not to be confused with the 'Covers' record, which is scheduled for a late Spring release, this will be the 1st all new material by DANZIG since 2010's Deth Red Sabaoth."
Damn, has it really been five years since the last Danzig record? Not that there were very many records between, but this will be the first time since 2004 that Tommy Victor has played on a Danzig record as well. So the new stuff should at least be interesting. The bottom line is that as much as we all like to poke fun at the dude because he's a little ridiculous sometimes, he's still a good musician capable of cranking out a solid record.
