Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 spoke to Revolver about Zombie's upcoming studio album, which will arrive either later this year or in early 2020. Asked how it sounds, John responded, "(It's) 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."

Zombie has been completing work on his new movie, 3 From Hell, and told us he had to get that done before he could concentrate on releasing a new album: ["I don't know the exact release date for the album. It'll be sometime most likely in February. I don't know the exact date. It's been done, but I had to get this movie done and out before I could put it out, 'cause then probably in December or January, I'll start shooting all the music videos for that for next year."] SOUNDCUE (:14 OC: . . . for next year.)

The new Rob Zombie album will follow up 2016's The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser. It's the second consecutive effort to feature Zombie and John 5 alongside bassist Piggy D. and drummer Ginger Fish.

Zombie's new movie, 3 From Hell, is a sequel to his 2005 horror hit The Devil's Rejects. It will premiere at theaters around the country on September 16th, 17th and 18th via Fathom Events, with different bonus features each night.
