Rob Zombie is celebrating 20 years of music by releasing a career-spanning limited edition vinyl boxed set that features the artist's solo albums.
Each of the 11 Zombie solo albums — from the 1998 Hillbilly Deluxe to the 2016 The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser — will be pressed on 15 audiophile-quality 180-gram LPs. The limited-edition box will also feature the artist's new live album ASTRO-CREEP 2000 LIVE. The record label will also include digital copies of all 11 albums on an exclusive Creeper Robot USB.
In addition, those who will purchase the album will get an individually-painted, 1970s-style, wearable Creeper Robot mask. The box will also contain five lithographs commissioned by Zombie, a turntable mat, a microfiber cleaning cloth, and more.
Overall, the boxed set weighs around 15 pounds, revealed the press release.
The Rob Zombie limited-edition box set will be available for purchase on March 30. The standalone Astro-Creep: 2000 Live will also be available on the same day. All albums, including the previously out-of-print titles, except Hillbilly Deluxe 2, will also be available for purchase individually as standard weight black LP.
However, uDiscoverMusicUS is already accepting preorders on the record label's official website. A box sells for $420 exclusive of shipping fees.
Rob Zombie's Next Album
"A lot of people say, 'Oh, it's just our greatest record,' and I don't say that," he stated in an interview with Rock Talk With Mitch Lafon, as transcribed by Blabbermouth. "Whatever I say is so honest when I'm doing interviews. So I think it's our best record."
He reiterated that Zombie did an incredible job with the lyrics and the melody on his own. He said that he could not wait for people to hear it.
"So what happened this time is he wrote lyrics and melody to, like, drum beats and sounds, and he came up with, in my opinion, the hookiest, most memorable lyrics and melody that he has ever," he added. " And what he did is brought me in and then we worked on the music, and it was un-f******-believable; it just worked so well."
John 5 is currently on tour for his live record It's Alive. His next performance will be at the Rock Box in San Antonio, Texas on March 29.
