Rob Zombie has issued a trailer for his first-ever concert home video, The Zombie Horror Picture Show, which is due out on Blu-ray and DVD on May 20th. Zombie, who directed the film himself, leads his band through longtime favorites like "Living Dead Girl," "More Human Than Human" and "Dragula" as well as newer songs like "Ging Gang Gong De Do Gong De Laga Raga" and "Dead City Radio And The New Gods of Supertown."

  • A photo book by photographer Rob Fenn will be published as a companion piece to the Blu-ray and DVD.
  • The Zombie Horror Picture Show will feature footage filmed during stops on last year's Rockstar Energy Mayhem Festival tour in Houston on August 3rd, 2013 and Dallas on August 4th.
  • Zombie's fifth solo album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, came out last April.
  • Zombie will kick off a 12-date run of shows on April 26th in Fort Myers, Florida at the Fort Rock festival, mixing other major rock festival stops with headlining shows before wrapping it up on May 10th in Camden, New Jersey.

Rob Zombie not only has a live DVD, a book and a spring tour on the way, but he's already begun work on the follow-up to last year's album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor. Zombie and his band started putting together his sixth solo CD in January, and told us he plans to resume the project in May: "I don't want years and years to go by between records, even though somehow it always seems to happen. And you know, we're really excited because we really felt that for ourselves as a band, the last record really kind of got back to something that I was looking for, and we were just excited to take it to the next level. When you're feeling inspired, you kind of want to go for it, because sometimes you don't feel inspired."

Zombie has set May 20th as the release date for his first official concert DVD and Blu-ray, titled The Zombie Horror Picture Show. Filmed at two shows last August in Texas, the 16-song set will include live versions of solo hits, White Zombie classics "Thunderkiss '65," "More Human Than Human" and "Supercharger Heaven," plus Zombie's recent cover of Grand Funk Railroad's "We're An American Band." A photo book by photographer Rob Fenn will be published as a companion piece to the home video release. Zombie will kick off a 12-date run of shows on April 26th in Fort Myers, Florida at the Fort Rock festival, mixing other major rock festival stops with headlining shows before wrapping it up on May 10th in Camden, New Jersey.
