OMG! Danzig is hitting the road later this spring and he’s bringing along an insanely awesome pairing of bands as support!

Texas black metal battalion NECROFIER is embarking on a run of live dates in support of DANZIG, with CRADLE OF FILTH and CROBOT! This is gonna be sick!

I don’t know about you but with this super talented combo of amazing artists, this makes what is set to be the tour of the year. Personally looking forward to the Austin stop and hope to catch up with the Texas natives from NECROFIER.While I was able to catch Cradle of Filth back last October here in Austin and even photographed it for our friends at Underground Nation. They have always been a good group to see and hope that they bring the same energy to this tour. I’ll have more on both of these great bands very soon so stay tuned for that.

NECROFIER is supporting their debut full-length record, ‘Prophecies of Eternal Darkness,’ which is out NOW! Stream/order/download HERE.

Glenn Danzig is a metal icon for sure. If you did not know he formed the Misfits in 1977, Samhain in 1983, and Danzig in 1987, he succeeded in fusing hardcore punk, gothic metal, blues rock, and horror punk into a respected—and headbanging—form of art.

An auteur, Danzig contributes further than just his unmistakable, dark, reverberative voice to his music, but also guitar riffs, bass lines, drum sections, and keyboard warbles. 

 And the legend was born, as was the cult of fans who follow his every lyrical trek into horror, death, erotica, religion, and gore. For confirmation, look no further than a song like “ Wicked Pussycat,” which purrs, Six-foot pussycat, I like the way you swing your tail/ Big black witch cat, yes, you cast a real strong spell/ Feline succubus, got your fangs inside her throat. Danzig makes it relatively clear what his heartstrings are, again and again combining them into different cultural platforms like comic book characters and music videos. 

The important thing for Danzig is to stay on the cutting-edge. However, he tells Noisey, “ change it, “ If it gets boring. 

Notably, the May 7th date in Ontario, California, will feature Danzig playing his entire 1992 album, Danzig II: Lucifuge, front to back and Tiger Army will be joining for just that show. Head to Danzig’s website for more information and see the full routing of dates below.
