Published Sep 23, 2015Danzig has a brand new album in the works, but first, the former Misfits singer and his eponymous band are going to be issuing a covers record. As previously revealed, the record is called Skeletons, and it will be out in the late fall.
An exact release date hasn't yet been announced, but a Facebook update confirms that it will be out in "late November 2015." The previously teased album cover, which features some rather garish watermarks from Danzig's Evilive Records, can be seen above. It shows Glenn Danzig posing with former adult actress Kayden Kross.
Skeletons will be made up of cover tunes, and while the tracklist hasn't been revealed, fans have assembled a rundown of some likely tracks based on Danzig's interview comments and live performances. This includes ZZ Top's "Rough Boy," the Troggs' "A Girl Like You," the Everly Brothers' "Crying in the Rain," Aerosmith's "Lord of the Thighs," Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra's "Some Velvet Morning," Elvis Presley's "Let Yourself Go," Black Sabbath's "N.I.B.," Dave Allen & the Arrows' "Devil's Angels," and the theme from the film Satan's Sadists.
Hear Danzig's version of "Devil's Angels" below. It was released in 2012 (which gives you some idea of how long Danzig has been talking about this covers record).
Back in March, Facebook post confirmed that Danzig was in a Los Angeles studio working on a new album of original material. At the time, it was slated for a "late 2015 or early 2016 release." At this point, it's probably safe to say that it won't be out until 2016.
Meanwhile, Danzig will be hitting the road for a North American tour in October. See the schedule for the "Blackest of the Black" tour here.
