Almost two years after the release of his seventh studio album, ‘The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy,’ Rob Zombie spoke up about his current endeavors. Following the departure of guitarist John 5, he recently hinted at what fans might anticipate next during an interview on the ‘Howie Mandel Does Stuff’ podcast. Despite the heavy metal guitarist’s removal from his band, Zombie continues his career, preparing for his Freaks On Parade Summer Tour in 2023. In addition, he is working on a new record, according to recent statements that provide insight into his artistic approach. The singer explained what’s on his plate:

“Right now, I’m just worried about the summer tour and the next album, because I haven’t created a record in a long time… I was [working on the album’s music] until approximately a week ago. And things are going well. It’s a lengthy procedure. I prefer to make recordings over time so that I can live with them. Sometimes you write something new, and you’re all psyched because it’s new, and then time passes, and you’re like, “Eh, it’s just exciting because it’s new.” It’s not all that great.’ But after living with something for a while, you get a greater understanding of how strong it is.” Before his former bandmate’s answers, John 5, now with Mötley Crüe, reminisced on his post-departure relationship with Zombie in an interview with Sirius XM’s Trunk Nation. They haven’t kept in touch, he claims, since he joined the Mötley Crüe. Nonetheless, he appreciated Zombie’s understanding of his decision to join another band.

The guitarist remembered: “I spoke with Rob, and he understood.” Rob is a sensible and astute individual. He wasn’t thrilled, but he understood. And I thought that was incredible of him. He just said, ‘Go get them.’ He was unconcerned about it.” Mike Riggs filled John 5’s shoes in Zombie’s band after he stepped down to replace Mick Mars last fall. As things stand, the frontman continues on his musical adventure with Riggs by his side, while his old bandmate explores new territory with Mötley Crüe.
