Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson have announced plans for a “Twins of Evil” U.S. and European tour with will also see KoRn's Jonathan "J Devil" Davis providing support for many of the U.S. dates.
Debauchery, theatrics, ghoulish imagery, and a full-on assault of all the senses are what's in store for fans when the tour kicks off, first in the U.S. and then with a 10-country sweep through Europe.
Kicking off September 28 when both Zombie and Manson co-headline the first day of the Desert Uprising Festival in Phoenix, Arizona, expect defiant rock'n'roll showmanship in the form of these unholy rollers with the first U.S. date wrapping in Dallas on Halloween, October 31.
In a press release, Zombie stated: "Finally! Why did the most obvious tour take so long to happen? Who knows? Who cares? It's happening now. If good taste is the chief enemy of great art, then we should be able to fill the Louvre with this fucking tour. Be prepared for something wicked this way a-coming."
J Devil, the DJ alter ego of KoRn's frontman Jonathan Davis, will support the Manson/Zombie dates with his chaotic electro-metal.
Marilyn Manson’s eighth full-length album ‘Born Villain’ debuted in the Top 10 on the Billboard Top 200 Album Chart, also grabbing the #1 spots on both the Heavy Album Chart and the Independent Album Chart.
For the "Twins of Evil" tour, Zombie and his band of maniacs - John 5/guitar, Piggy D/bass and drummer Ginger Fish - will bring their elaborate, multi-media production, complete with hair-raising theatrics, animatronic robots, oversized LED screens, a non-stop collage of psychotronic monster film clips, a spectacular light show, a gigantic robot with flames shooting out of its body, pyrotechnics, insane guitar riffs and vicious beats.
On August 7, prior to the kick off of the "Twins of Evil" tour, Mondo Sex Head, an album featuring new and unique remixes of Rob Zombie classics by some of today's top DJs, including KoRn's Jonathan "JDevil" Davis, Photek, the Bloody Beetroots, †††, Kraddy, Drumcorps, and Ki: Theory will be released (Universal Music Enterprises/UMe). Fans can download one of the new songs, "Thunder Kiss '65 (J-Devil Number of the Beast Remix)," from iTunes.
