Rob Zombie And Marilyn Manson Announces “Twins Of Evil – Hell Never Dies” Tour Dates

Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson have announced that they will once again team up for another edition of their “Twins Of Evil” tour, dubbed “Twins Of Evil – Hell Never Dies.” The tour will kick off in Baltimore and include appearances at Rock Fest in Cadott, WI and Rock USA in Oshkosh, WI. Tickets go on sale on Friday. A video message from the duo can be seen below.

Both artists have been hard at work on their new albums, while Rob Zombie has also been putting the finishing touches on his new film, “Three From Hell,” the sequel to his 2005 film, “The Devil’s Rejects,” which itself is a sequel to the 2003 movie, “House Of 1000 Corpses.”

The two previously toured together in 2012, during which several bitter incidents occurred between the two, beginning with a Tweet from Manson which read: “Sorry to Chicago for not getting to play ‘Beautiful People.’ You can sing it in between Zombie songs, his band has already played it.” Manson also accused Zombie of cutting into his set and claimed he was going to, “Beat his ass twice… Maybe three times.” Zombie responded with a series of expletives aimed at Manson onstage, before posting a message on Facebook which read:

“I don’t get it. Christ, I’ve known some of his crew for 20 fucking years and some of his crew used work for me. It’s all good. No one would fuck with someone’s show. It is ridiculous … Well, of course, I felt the need to respond to the ‘kick my ass remark.’ Who wouldn’t? Although I wish I had kept it backstage and kept the fans out of it. It is all 4th grade fight after school nonsense of which I have never dealt with on tour before. Co-headlining tours always go smooth because everything is cut 50/50 and I mean everything. No one fucks with anyone’s show. It is even fucking Steven. I’ve done it co-headlining tours many times before and have had no troubles.”

The tour dates are as follows:

Lizzy Borden storms Billboard charts with first album in 11 years, ‘My Midnight Things’

– June 26th, 2018 –

It turns out that the time away from the music scene has not dulled the appetites of hard rock fans for Lizzy Borden, as his new album, My Midnight Things, has already left a deep impression on five different Billboard charts. These placings include #11 on Top New Artist Albums, #17 on Current Hard Music Albums, #43 on Top New Artist Albums Consumption, #46 on Independent Current Albums, and #148 on Top 200 Current Albums. Additionally, the album also made the Canadian charts – hitting #84 on Top Hard Music Charts.

“We live in a streaming world now, where everyone gets their music for free,” explains Lizzy. “But I want to personally thank all the great Lizzy Borden fans out there who shopped online or drove down to your local mom and pop music store and actually paid for my new album. You guys got Lizzy Borden back on the charts! And the fact that you’ve all embraced ‘My Midnight Things‘ in such an amazing way is the icing on the cake. Thanks again, and I will see you all soon on the ‘My Midnight Things‘ tour!”

Released on June 15th via Metal Blade Records, My Midnight Things can be purchased and previewed at: metalblade.com/lizzyborden

Having signed a new contract with Metal Blade on the strength of three demo tracks, Borden opted to produce My Midnight Things himself, with Joey Scott as co-producer, who also handled all the drumming duties. “I knew what I was going for and had doubts that I could find a producer who would understand that,” Borden explains. “My approach is very different than what is happening in today’s current sound.”

The album was also mixed by Greg Fidelman (Metallica, Black Sabbath, Adele, U2) and mastered by Tom Baker (David Bowie, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Tom Petty), and is already receiving rave reviews, from Alt Revolt, Pure Grain Audio, and Royal Flush:

Borden paints a ten-song art gallery show and lets the listener decide what he or she sees on the canvas.”Alternative Revolt Magazine

“Catchy riffs and melodies that are sure to be trapped inside your head, bouncing around your skull for days to come.”PureGrainAudio

“The resulting creation yielded what is arguably the strongest vocal performance of Borden‘s career.”Royalflushmagazine.com
