Rob Zombie's John 5 Sets Solo Release

Rob Zombie's guitarist John 5 has set a new release date for his upcoming full-length solo CD/DVD, God Told Me To. The CD/DVD will now be released on May 8th, 2012

God Told Me To was recorded and produced by John 5, Chris Baseford (Rob Zombie, Tommy Lee) and Bob Marlette (Sebastian Bach, Black Sabbath) in 2011. The cover art for the album is illustrated by none other than Rob Zombie, who is also tapping John 5 to score the entirety of his upcoming film, ‘The Lords of Salem’.

“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’,” states John 5. “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!”

The release comes just days before he heads out to perform with Rob Zombie on their upcoming co-headliner with Megadeth (see below for tour dates).
