Rob Zombie will unleash his third solo album, “Educated Horses,” March 28 via Geffen. First single “Foxy Foxy” is due to arrive the second week of February at U.S. rock radio outlets; a video will be shot next month in Los Angeles by Zombie and cinematographer Phil Parmet, who previously worked on the Zombie horror film “The Devil’s Rejects.”
“Educated Horses” sports drumming from Josh Freese and a guest appearance by Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee on an as-yet-unnamed track. The album will be supported on a spring North American tour with up-and-coming Italian rock outfit Lacuna Coil. The outing will begin March 17 in Jacksonville, Fla., and last through April 27 in Mesa, Ariz. Zombie will be backed on the road by guitarist John 5, bassist Blasko and drummer Tommy Clufetos.
“Educated Horses” is the follow-up to 2001’s “The Sinister Urge,” which debuted at No. 8 on The Billboard 200 and has sold 1 million copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Also on the horizon for Zombie is the film adaptation of his comic book “The Haunted World of El Superbeasto” and acting role in the alien/zombie flick “Slither,” which opens March 31 in U.S. theaters.
