Glenn Danzig certainly has a knack for catching our attention lately. The legendary frontman revealed an awesome shot of himself, via Facebook, donning his legendary MISFITS skull makeup. The photo was taken during a shoot for his upcoming covers album, tentatively titled “Skeletons”. It has been 35 years since he wore the makeup as a member of the band.
His Facebook entry reads:
“On set of photo-shoot for upcoming DANZIG Covers record tentatively titled ‘Skeletons’ with incredible photographer Paul Brown.1st time in Skull Face since Misfits ’79-’80. trip.
much more malevolent.
see you On Tour.
Danzig is currently in an L.A. studio writing the follow up to 2010’s Deth Red Sabaoth. He is also readying a series of catalog reissues. While many will be re-releases, in some cases others will be issued on new formats (including vinyl) for the first time ever. All titles will see release on Danzig’s own Evillive Records later in 2015.
Besides these projects, Danzig has recently released the long awaited Danzig Legacy TV Special, produced and directed by Mark Brooks (Adult Swim’s Metalocalypse) and Evilive Records. A fifty-minute showcase with appearances by Doyle, Tommy Victor and Steve Zing, the special is available now through Vimeo On Demand. Says Brooks, “My idea was to do a take on the Elvis ’68 Special, only with Danzig, showcasing all the aspects of his legendary career from Misfits to Samhain, and ultimately to his self-titled outfit Danzig, that finally achieved him worldwide success.”
