Rob Zombie has confirmed that he’s completed work on his new studio album.

Back in May, he revealed that the follow-up to 2016’s The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser (opens in new tab) was “more or less finished.” (opens in new tab)

Now he’s given an update on what fans can expect when it launches in 2019.

Zombie tells Loudwire (opens in new tab): “The record's done. It'll get out next year, early next year. I think this and so do the guys in the band. I think it's the best record we've made. 

“Parts of it are the heaviest, parts are the weirdest, it's the most complex record we've ever made, but at the same time it's always very catchy and listenable, but it's the most intricately structured record.

“There are those songs that go in a direction we've never even gone near before. Personally, I like records that are very varied in sound. Not just like, ‘Oh, here's 12 super heavy tracks,’ and they're all the same tempo.”

Zombie adds: “I like records that are all over the place. That's why I think my favourite Beatles record was always The White Album.”

Zombie is currently on The Twins Of Evil: The Second Coming Tour with Marilyn Manson. Last week, the pair released their cover of Beatles’ classic Helter Skelter (opens in new tab).
