An auteur filmmaker and music artist with shrewd insight and creative vision, Rob Zombie challenges audiences as he stretches the boundaries of film, music and publishing.
After assaulting audiences worldwide with the violent high-octane road classic The Devil's Rejects, Zombie's brutal follow-up to his critically acclaimed directorial debut, House of 1000 Corpses, Zombie now returns to his first love, music. Hitting stores this March is the album Educated Horses, Zombie's first album of all new material in almost five years. Zombie explains, "After working almost non-stop for two years on The Devil's Rejects, I needed a break. So I gathered together the finest band I've ever worked with and headed back into the studio."
From Halloween to Christmas, Zombie, along with longtime Producer Scott Humphrey, locked himself away in the same studio that has birthed the last two Zombie efforts The Sinister Urge and Hellbilly Deluxe. Three months later Zombie emerged with his most sonically diverse album to date. "I really wanted to expand things more than ever," Zombie relates. "From the full out metal attack of songs like 'Let It All Bleed Out' to the haunting acoustic number 'Death Of It All' I think I succeeded."
And succeed he has. Zombie is the longest active artist on Geffen Records, having been with the label for over 15 years.
Additionally, Rob has released the most Gold and Platinum discs with Geffen records (seven in total) than any other artist on the label.
