Empress Eve   |  

Danzig 25th Anniversary

The band Danzig will be celebrating the 25th anniversary of the release of their 1988 debut album, Danzig, with a series of live dates in the United States and Europe.

The band, which features former Misfits frontman Glenn Danzig, posted the news this week to their official Facebook, promising to announce tour dates soon. For the tour, Danzig’s former Misfits bandmate Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein will appear at most of the shows as a special guest, which will mark the first time Danzig and Doyle have performed live together in Europe.

This year marks DANZIG’s 25th Year Anniversary and a series of Live Dates here in the US and in Europe will be announced shortly.

Don’t dare miss this Landmark Milestone Event as DANZIG hits the stage this Special Year and he’ll be bringing Special Guest & former Misfits Bandmate Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein on Most of the Shows. For Euro Fans, this will be the 1st Time Ever that DANZIG & DOYLE will be Performing Live Together On Stage.

Overseas Fans Most Definitely will Not Want to Miss This!!!

That’s all the details that have been released so far, but we’ll definitely be on the lookout for more news soon.

The band’s last studio album, Deth Red Sabaoth, was released in June 2010, and it’s really kick-ass, so if you’re into Danzig but perhaps abandoned them at some point, definitely give this last album a listen.

[Time for a "hometown boy" shout-out... go!] Deth Red Sabaoth is the first time Brooklyn’s own Johnny Kelly – former Type O Negative, current drummer for Seventh Void, A Pale Horse Named Death, and the Led Zeppelin cover band Earl’s Court – has played drums on a Danzig record (he’s been playing live with them since 2002 and become a full-on member of Danzig in 2006) and let me tell you, it’s obvious; Kelly’s an animal behind the kit.

FYI – if you’re not that familiar with the band Danzig, you might recall they had a modest hit with the song “Mother” (watch the video here below). That first album is actually on sale right now for $5 in MP3 format (the CD is $6.99 and it comes with both the CD and a FREE MP3 download), and there’s not a bad song on it, so if you don’t already own it, grab it now.

Tidbit: You know how huge Soundgarden is? Well, back in 1990, Soundgarden was actually the opening act for Danzig on their tour supporting their sophomore effort Lucifuge. Soundgarden was promoting their 1989 album Louder Than Love, so it was before they made it big. (I had 2nd row seats for the August 17th stop of the tour at NYC’s Beacon Theater and oh man was it awesome; Warrior Soul opened the night.) Soundgarden didn’t become a household name and earn their top spot in the Grunge pantheon until 1994′s Superunknown, which reached #1 on the U.S. Billboard charts and yielded 5 hits songs, including the #1 single “Black Hole Sun.” By 1994, grunge was at the forefront of the music industry with Soundgarden in the spotlight along with fellow Seattle acts Nirvana (whose frontman Kurt Cobain committed suicide that year), Pearl Jam, and Alice in Chains, while Danzig was all but forgotten about.
