DANZIG ANNOUNCES EAST COAST/WEST COAST LIVE DATES

Glenn and Doyle Reunite on The Road and in The Studio

Los Angeles, CA - September 20, 2007 -- Glenn Danzig will hit the road

beginning in late October for a handful of live concert dates on both the

East and West coasts. Joining Danzig on these dates will be bassist Steve

Zing (Samhain) and guitarist Todd Youth (Danzig, Murphy's Law); former

Misfits axe man Doyle Von Frankenstein and his new band Gorgeous

Frankenstein, will support on all dates.

Glenn and Doyle have been in the studio recording Doyle¹s first solo album,

³Gorgeous Frankenstein,² which Danzig produced and will release on October

16 on his label, evilive. According to Glenn, he and Doyle recorded ³eight

blood-curdling tracks² that include ³Man or Monster,² ³Devilgirl,² ³Reverse

of God,² and ³Made In Hell.² The two played all instruments on the album.

These Danzig dates are also in support of ³The Lost Tracks of Danzig,² the

two-CD set that was released May 29, as well as Glenn¹s limited edition book

³Drukija, Contessa of Blood,² loosely based on the legend of 17th century

vampire, Countess Elizabeth Bathory, and illustrated by long time

collaborator Simon Bisley. ³The Lost Tracks² is comprised of 26 previously

unreleased tracks that span Danzig's entire career and were originally

recorded during the band's seven-album "arc" that began with 1988's

"Danzig."

Long before Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson or Guns N' Roses, there was

Glenn Danzig. Danzig is arguably the most versatile talent to ! emerge from

hardcore's first wave -- a graphic designer, photographer, comic book

publisher and composer who writes all his bands' music. His songs have been

covered by Guns N' Roses, Metallica and My Chemical Romance. He's written

for Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison. Glenn Danzig has received many titles, from

the Godfather of Dark Metal to a man of integrity, but most agree that over

his three-decades career, his intense musical and lyrical statements have

left a permanent mark on rock music.

Founder of the Misfits, that band pioneered dark horror/hardcore punk and

has become a seminal band of the genre, despite only six years and a few

albums. The goth metal-punk band Samhain quickly followed and in just

another few years became a noted outfit. Darker than Samhain, Danzig's music

evolved into a potent mix of gothic metal and blues with a Satanic twist. In

2006, the ever-surprising Glenn Danzig released his second classical album,

"Black Aria 2," which debuted in the! Top Ten - imagine, the Godfather of

Dark Metal keeping co mpany on the Billboard classical chart with Itzhak

Perlman and Andrea Bocelli.

Follows are the confirmed Danzig east and west coast dates. Other than these

shows, Danzig has no plans to do any touring in the foreseeable future.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
