We know for certain that we are finally getting a new Rob Zombie track this Friday, his first in about four years. But what will it sound like? What will it be called? Today, Zombie offered a hint.
Posting to his social media, Zombie noted "In just 4 days the first new Zombie song in over four years drops! The Triumph of KING FREAK : a crypt of preservation and superstition"
So will the song be called "The Triumph of King Freak" or just "King Freak?"
John 5 was interviewed by Detroit’s WRIF radio station earlier this month and reassured fans “You will be seeing something soon. That’s all I say. Very, very, very soon. It’s coming very soon… We’re excited. I’m more excited than anyone, that’s for sure.”
John 5 has spoken at length about how excited he is about the new album. In January of 2019, he told the Talk Toomey Podcast “The Zombie album is wrapped, mixed, mastered and heavy and awesome. And hooky and musical, and badass. The best Zombie record to date—better than White Zombie anything…He went nuts on this one. I’m telling you, it’s the best Zombie record you guys will hear. And we’re going to have a big tour. We’re going to do videos, and you know, I’ve been in the band with the guy forever and I just love him.”
Speaking to Revolver later that year, John 5 said of the new music "Heavy, very heavy. It's just a heavy Zombie record with great hooks. It's very, very musical, and a hard-hitting Zombie record. I think people are really gonna dig it. I'm a Zombie fan, and if I heard it, I'd be like, "Oh my God, this is brutal." I'm really excited about it!"
"Well, this is definitely the most musical, meaning there are a lot of different changes, and it's very unorthodox how the structure is, you know? I have to be careful because I know people will take a little snippet of what I'm saying, so we'll go with "a very heavy, hooky Rob Zombie record."
