Danzig Announces New Album ‘Black Laden Crown,’ Plots 25th Anniversary Tour Behind ‘How the Gods Kill’

Coming hot on the heels last year's Misfits reunion, Glenn Danzig has announced he's returning with an all-new Danzig album. What's more, he's also celebrating the 25th anniversary the mighty Danzig III: How the Gods Kill with a series upcoming live shows.

Danzig made the reveal today (March15) on his website, stating that the first new album all-original material since Deth Red Sabaoth will arrive in mid-May. At this point, there is no firm release date or title for the upcoming album, but details are promised to be revealed shortly.

UPDATE (3/20, 3 p.m. EDT): Danzig has now revealed his new album is called Black Laden Crown. That's its cover art above, and it's expected to arrive in May Evilive Records/Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The album was recorded alongside longtime guitarist Tommy Victor and Queens the Stone Age drummer Joey Castillo.

While this indeed will mark the first album all-new material since Deth Red Sabaoth, Danzig's last full-length was the 2015 covers collection Skeletons.

As for the tour in support How the Gods Kill, the post promises a "handful shows this summer," which will see Danzig perform "many songs" (though maybe not all) from the beloved 1992 album.

Of course, stay tuned for further details as they become available.
