Fresh off a trek with Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie is planning a 34-date North American tour in support of his latest Interscope/Geffen album, "The Sinister Urge." The jaunt, with legendary punk band the Damned and newcomer Sinisstar in tow, will kick off March 7 in Houston and wind down April 24 in Atlanta. Beforehand, Zombie will join Osbourne and Korn for a Feb. 26 show in Los Angeles as part of the Recording Artists Coalition benefits.

The tour comes in the midst of a number of other Zombie-related projects. He will record "Blitzkreig Bop" for the upcoming Ramones tribute album, and is adding new scenes and recording a soundtrack for his film "House of 1000 Corpses," which was denied release by Universal last spring. The artist's home will also be featured Wednesday (Jan. 23) on an episode of MTV's "Cribs."

"The Sinister Urge" debuted at No. 8 on The Billboard 200 last November and is No. 71 in its ninth week on the chart. The new single "Never Gonna Stop" debuted at No. 39 on Billboard's Mainstream Rock Tracks chart this week.
