From a press release:

It was announced today that musician and filmmaker Rob Zombie will bring his outrageous horror rock stage show to the Sands Bethlehem Event Center on Thursday, Sept. 15 at 8 p.m.

Tickets, which are $45 in advance or $50 the day of the show, go on sale this Friday, July 29 at 10 a.m. Tickets can be purchased at sandseventcenter.com, the Event Center box office (77 Sands Blvd., Bethlehem), ticketmaster.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, or by phone at 800-745-3000. Tickets can also be purchased for $33.75 each in a special four-pack discount.

Released on April 29, “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser” is Rob Zombie’s sixth solo studio album, via UMe/T-Boy Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. A full return to form by the rock icon, “The Electric Warlock” features John 5 (guitar), Piggy D (bass), and Ginger Fish (drums). Produced by Zeuss, it was recorded and mixed at Goathouse Studios, marking Zombie’s first solo studio album since 2013’s “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor,” which debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200.

In true Zombie fashion, the design of the record is just as provocative as the music it holds. Featuring art by Alex Horley, the album’s centerfold needs to be seen to be believed. He said of the new release, “I can easily say this is my favorite album yet… no joke. Yeah, I know every fucking asshole says that, but it is seriously our heaviest, most fucked-up musical monster to date. One song entitled ‘Well, Everybody’s Fucking in a U.F.O.’ is sure to be an instant Zombie classic! Not since ‘Hellbilly Deluxe‘ have I spent this long putting an album together. It was worth it.”

As a rock legend and filmmaker with a unique vision, Zombie has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of both music and film. He has achieved great solo artist success with several multi-platinum and gold albums, selling more than 15 million albums worldwide. He is also the only artist to experience unprecedented success in both music and film as the writer/director of six feature films.

Zombie’s seventh feature film, the highly anticipated “31,” made its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival in January and will receive a national release on Sept. 16. Last year, he put out his first live album in over eight years, “Spookshow International Live,” which is filled with 19 tracks from the highlights of Zombie’s critically acclaimed U.S. tour of 2014.
