The news broke a few short days ago but with the holiday weekend looming I had other things in queue for you to read. I snagged two news items from the main mans official website and culled them together for your maximum Metal enjoyement. Dig in.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: As you can see by the poster, the band Corrosion Of Conformity will be providing support across these few dates. Danzig’s most recent album history found “Black Laden Crown” being released by Nuclear Blast Entertainment along with a covers LP entitled “Skeletons”. These two works followed the much lauded “Deth Red Sabaoth” from 2008. Perhaps the biggest news item though had to be the reunion at last years Riotfest of the Original Misfits (Danzig, Jerry Only and Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein). Sadly none of that footage has come to light on a professional release. Come on people let’s get on that since the masses WANT that footage on video and even audio at this point. There is some on YouTube but its not pro-shot. Speaking frankly I don’t think that I am getting to any of these East Coast shows but hope that who do have a terrific time. That said what do you readers think about this tour announcement? Is it something that interests you at all? Let me know in the comments section below. Hope all of you are enjoying the holiday weekend.
