Rob Zombie Announces New Album, The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy
After teasing his first new material in several years earlier this week, Rob Zombie has now not only unveiled a single – but also announced all the details of his upcoming seventh studio record.
The excellently-titled LP, The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy, is due out on March 12 next year via Nuclear Blast, with lead single The Triumph Of King Freak (A Crypt of Preservation And Superstition) available to check out right now.
Rob has also announced a limited-edition 7″ King Freak vinyl, with the addition of B‑side The Serenity Of Witches – pre-order that here.
Speaking to Kerrang! last year about the follow-up to 2016’s The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser as a whole, Rob called album number seven “the best record we’ve ever made”.
“The record’s 100 per cent finished,” he said. “It’s been done for a while, but I didn’t want to put it out while I was dealing with [his movie 3 From Hell], because it’d just get lost and I wouldn’t have time to deal with it.
“We’ve worked on it for a long time,” he continued of the LP. “The songs are very catchy, but the structures are way more complex that they’ve been in the past. It’s kind of all over the place. I think the fans are going to love it.”
Rob also told NME that his new album is “a very big, crazy and complex record that I’m really excited to finally be able to release”.

The annals of rock history is littered with smut, filth and generally seedy gags. Here we look back at some of the most ridiculous wordplay about the birds and the bees…
