Rob Zombie is premiering a video for the track “The Hideous Exhibitions Of A Dedicated Gore Whore” from his latest album, “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser.”
Shot by the rocker and film director, Zombie says the clip’s visuals share a history with some of his past videos.
“It's kind of a running theme,” he tells Noisey. “Eighteen years ago, on my first record, I had a song called ‘Living Dead Girl’. And that became a huge song for me, and the female portion of the audience really embraced that title. So I thought, What's the next level you graduate to after Living Dead Girl? I guess you're a Dedicated Gore Whore! And the character in the video is the same as in the ‘Living Dead Girl’ video."
“I like creating characters – not just in movies but in videos – that can reappear and bounce back and sometimes pop up onstage," he adds. "It's the same actress, same make-up, but I figured that if the other video it looks like it's 1920, then it's eighty years later. She's getting a tattoo. Maybe next time she'll be in space!”
“Electric Warlock” debuted earlier this year at No. 6 on the US Billboard 200 with opening week sales of 41,000 units, of which 40,000 were in pure album sales.
Zombie will wrap up a North American tour in Chicago, IL on September 18 before heading to Europe to play a series of dates next month.
