Danzig Says Goodnight
Regardless, Danzig has announced the “Blackest Of The Black” tour, which frontman Glenn Danzig says will be his last, “at least for the foreseeable future.”
“It seems like I have been touring my whole life and I want to take some time for myself and do many of the things I’ve always wanted to do, like direct my first feature film, which I will be doing this next year,” he said.
The North American tour is set for this fall, although specific dates are still forthcoming. Mayhem, Devil Driver, Death Angel, and Eyes Of Fire are confirmed to appear on the trek, along with Danzig’s ex-Misfits bandmate Doyle.
“To do this right, I invited Doyle to join Danzig on stage at ‘Blackest Of The Black’ for a special guest set,” Danzig said. “This is the first time we will be performing on stage together in 20 years. It’s the closest thing to a Misfits reunion anyone is ever going to see!”
The Misfits – the punk band in which Danzig got his start – broke up in 1983, although original members Doyle and Jerry Only revived the band in 1995. Doyle stopped playing with the group after the birth of his daughter in 2002, and Danzig has publicly distanced himself from the reunion.
The new Danzig album, Circle Of Snakes, is due out August 24. The band will warm up for the “Blackest Of The Black” tour with a series of European festival shows this summer.
