Official press release.
Los Angeles, CA – Glenn Danzig today announced the highly anticipated return of his Blackest of the Black tour. In its latest reincarnation since 2008, the tour’s lineup will feature Danzig, legendary Bay Area hell-thrashers Possessed and Swedish black metal pioneers Marduk, who are making a rare & long awaited U.S. touring appearance. Toxic Holocaust and Withered will be rounding out the five band bill. The 19-city tour kicks off on October 25th in Albuquerque, NM.
In addition to Glenn, Danzig’s band for Blackest of the Black will consist of Tommy Victor (Prong, Ministry) on guitar, Steve Zing (Samhain) on bass and Bevan Davies (Danzig) on drums. Danzig is scheduled to perform at the free Red Bull Metallicross event at Pala Casino in Pala, CA on Oct. 23, on the eve of the Blackest of the Black kickoff.
"I'm excited about taking out both Possessed & Marduk as fans will get a chance to see these two bands who rarely tour the US," said Glenn. It should also be noted that Danzig hasn't played most of these markets in the past two years.
