Here’s a tour announcement that some of you readers will enjoy. It comes from the publicity peeps behind the great Glenn Danzig who is enjoying the praises of his latest album “Deth Red Sabaoth”. Check it out below, and I’ll return with some thoughts to close us out.
The Press Release:
Today, Danzig announces the Deth Red Sabaoth Tour this Spring with special guests Devildriver and 2Cents. The month-long, 22-city trek beings in Las Vegas on April 29th, hitting all regions of the US, and ends May 28th in Tempe, AZ. This comes on the heels of Danzig’s recent nomination for BEST VOCALIST at the 2011 Revolver Golden Gods Awards.
Tickets go on sale to the general public this weekend, March 4-5th, but special fan club pre-sale tickets will be available starting Wednesday, March 2nd at 3pm local time. For details, visit http://tixx1.artistarena.com/danzig.
The new single from Danzig will be “Ju Ju Bone”- a bluesy, devilishly melodic track from Danzig’s current, critically acclaimed album, Deth Red Sabaoth. The brand new video for “Ju Ju Bone” is soon to follow. The eerie, visually stunning video was co-directed by Glenn Danzig and Jonathan Lewis- director of the horror cult classic, Black Devil Doll.
DevilDriver’s claws are as sharp as ever with their fifth album Beast, which finds the band enjoying the best reviews of their near-decade career. 2Cents have become one of hard rock’s most promising young acts with their powerful live performance.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: It’s been a few years since I’ve caught Danzig in concert and I’d love to get back on point with his shows. My doing so for this go round is all depending on whether I can work it out when it hits the next state over for the Starland Ballroom show. I’ve liked what I’ve heard from the “Dethred Sabaoth” album and I guess I will toss something together for its latest single even though the record has been out for several months now. One can never have too much website content now can one? As far as the tour goes, I can safely attest that Devildriver will bring it to the table and though I have not heard a single note of 2Cents, the chatter has been largely positive. If I do go I will plan on catching everyone’s set to make sure. So what do you readers think about this short touring run? Will you be heading out to it in your region? Let me know down in the comments section below.
