In some horrifyingly good news, Rob Zombie released a new single, “The Triumph of King Freak,” just in time for Halloween 2020, the scariest holiday in an already terrifying 2020.
America’s favorite musical Zombie also announced that the tune is off his forthcoming seventh album, The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy, which marks the musician/director’s first new record in five years. It comes out March 12, 2021 via Nuclear Blast, and contains 17 cuts, produced by ZEUSS. (Tracklisting and album art are below.)
A limited-edition colored vinyl seven-inch featuring “King Freak” — which, technically is called “The Triumph of King Freak (A Crypt of Preservation and Superstition)”– and a B-side, “The Serenity of Witches,” is available now.
