Rock Legend Glenn Danzig Prepped to Unleash His “Skeletons”

ON

 

Danzig2

Veteran gloom-rocker covers classics on new album, “Skeletons”.

Danzig fans (and ZZ Top fans and Aerosmith fans and The Troggs fans and…) rejoice! The legendary doom-rocker and ex-MISFITS front-man has a new disc ready to roll out called “Skeletons”  (Nuclear Blast/Evillive Records) and it’s a bit of a departure.

Judging from the new press photo above, Danizg is still ample pissed at the planet but “Skeletons” offers a brighter side and, in some cases, a wildly stranger side, to the notorious Satanic curmudgeon. See, “Skeletons” is a cover album and man alive are some of the tunes selected here off the beaten, bloody path…

“These are my skeletons,” says Danzig. “You may or may not know that I dig these songs. You could say that some of this music is the actual basis and skeleton of what I listened to growing up—ultimately informing the kind of music I like. It’s the foundation. If you took Elvis and Sabbath out of my life, I probably wouldn’t be the Glenn Danzig you know! I’m glad both sides are represented on this record.”
 
From the press release:
 
Ultimately, Skeletons sparks the next phase for Danzig. Helping catalyze his next full-length offering and tour plans, it’s yet another revolution. “I hope people dig it,” he leaves off. “I also hope it gives everybody a little bit of insight into the music I listen to and maybe an insight into how I did the songs. If you enjoy it, that’s great.”
 

Here’s a look at the full track list:

1. Devil’s Angels (from Devil’s Angels soundtrack)
2. Satan (from Satan’s Sadists soundtrack) 
3. Let Yourself Go (Elvis Presley)
4. N.I.B. (Black Sabbath)
5. Lord Of Your Thighs (Aerosmith)
6. Action Woman (The Litter)
7. Rough Boy (ZZ Top)
8. With a Girl Like You (The Troggs)
9. Find Somebody (The Young Rascals)
10. Crying In The Rain (The Everly Brothers)

I don’t know about you, but a cover of a track ripped from an Al Adamson flick…well, Holy Hell…we’re in!

“Skeletons” streets November 27th.
