GLENN DANZIG Completes Work On ‘Danzig Sings Elvis’, Resumes Recording Next DANZIG Album


Glenn Danzig was in a Los Angeles-area recording studio on this week with guitarist Tommy Victor and drummer Joey Castillo laying down tracks for the upcoming DANZIG album, tentatively due in early 2017. Castillo also laid down some drums on an Elvis Presley track for the “Danzig Sings Elvis” record, which Glenn says is now finished and ready for release. Some of the songs Danzig has recorded include “Home Is Where the Heart Is” and the Faron Young-composed “Is It So Strange?”


“Elvis is actually kind of how I got into music,” Danzig told Rolling Stone last year. “When I was a kid, I was cutting school pretending I was sick and I would lie at home watching old movies, and ‘Jailhouse Rock’ came on with Elvis. I was like, ‘I want to do this. This is great.’ And that’s how I veered to music.”

Regarding his approach on the “Danzig Sings Elvis” LP, Glenn said: “I’m stripping some of the stuff down to the bare bones, very old-school fifties echoey slap-back vocals.”


DANZIG’s last collection of original material, 2010’s “Deth Red Sabaoth”, sold 11,700 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 35 on The Billboard 200 chart.


Glenn released his long-awaited covers record, “Skeletons”, in November 2015 in North America via Nuclear Blast Entertainment/Evilive Music.

MTV Launches ‘Classic’ Channel Dedicated to 1990s


‘Beavis and Butt-Head,’ ‘Aeon Flux’ and ‘MTV Unplugged’ to be resurrected in new channel

MTV plans to rebrand VH1 Classic as MTV Classic starting on August 1st. According to a statement from the company, the new channel will focus on “an eclectic mix of fan-favorite MTV series and music programming drawn from across its rich history, with a special focus on the 1990s and early 2000s.”


The August 1st switch date has special significance, commemorating the launch of MTV 35 years ago on August 1st, 1981. The debut hour of MTV Classic will replicate the first hour of programming in MTV’s history. In a nod to modern technology, fans will also be able to watch “MTV Hour One” via Facebook Live on the channel’s Facebook page.


After revisiting the 1981 debut, MTV Classic will flit through programming history, looking back at Total Request Live and airing the “most memorable” installments of MTV Unplugged, including episodes featuring Nirvana, Erykah Badu and Bob Dylan. Primetime will feature several popular animated shows, including Beavis & Butt-head and Aeon Flux. On the weekends, the channel plans to serve up “binge-worthy marathons” of shows like Real World and Laguna Beach.


“From Beavis & Butt-head to Laguna Beach, MTV’s programming vault is a music and pop culture goldmine with universal resonance,” Sean Atkins, President of MTV, noted in a statement. “MTV Classic gives audiences a modern and artful home for classic MTV programming and — alongside MTV, MTV2, MTV Live and mtvU — rounds out a diverse portfolio with music and youth culture at its core.”

The Mission’s Wayne Hussey says new album has the “swagger and bombast of the Mission of old”




The Mission’s Wayne Hussey has given an update from the studio, where he and the band are working on their new album.


They’re putting the pieces in place for the follow-up to 2013’s The Brightest Light with producer Tim Palmer. He was behind the desk for the band’s 1986 debut album God’s Own Medicine and 1990’s Carved In Sand.


And Hussey says the new material, which is expected later this year, carries the “swagger and bombast of the Mission of old.”


He says: “I’m sat in my hotel room in Austin having just completed my first day of work here with Tim Palmer. I haven’t seen Tim for maybe a good 10 years or so but it’s like no time at all has passed and we are so immediately comfortable working with each other again.


“I think this album is shaping up to be monstrous – an album that you will love. It has all the swagger and bombast of the Mission of old. Great tunes and some great guest performances. I’ve managed to persuade a few of my old mates to lend their vocal talents to this album. Guess who?


He suggests the record is the “lost link” between The Sisters Of Mercy’s debut First And Last And Always and God’s Own Medicine, and adds: “I have rekindled my love for the guitar, electric 12 string particularly, after many years of ambivalence between us.”


The Mission will head out on the road to celebrate their 30th anniversary later this year, with dates announced for the UK, Europe and Australia – including an appearance at the Whitby Goth Weekend on November 5.
