John 5 To Release New Solo Album “God Told Me To” In May


John 5 (Rob Zombie, ex-Marilyn Manson, etc.) will release his new full-length solo CD/DVD offering “God Told Me To” on May 07th through Rocket Science Ventures/Red. While the CD portion of the release will feature 10 new tracks, the DVD portion will a bit less typical. According to the press release:

“The DVD portion of the release is hosted by retro-style horror-host Mike Odd and takes a look inside the world of JOHN 5 during his terrifying trip into the realm of God Told Me To. The DVD features footage of JOHN 5 in the studio while working on the new album, exclusive videos taken on tour, a peek inside the photo shoot for his 2011 remix album Remixploitation, and more.”

Speaking about “God Told Me To“, John 5 offered:

“I’m so proud of this record, I’ve put more time into this release than any other! It’s half acoustic and the other half electric with a tribute to Michael Jackson and Eddie Van Halen with ‘Beat It’. The DVD shows me actually recording the songs as well as behind the scenes of a “day in the life” of JOHN 5! This album will take you on a musical journey designed to show more diversity in my playing than in the past. Enjoy!”

In the meantime, John 5 has been scoring the new film “Lords Of Salem“, which is being helmed by his bandmate, Rob Zombie. Zombie also created the cover art for “God Told Me To“, which you can view below. More on John 5 and his current activities can be found on his newly revamped official website.
