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.

Danzig’s BLACKEST OF THE BLACK was founded and masterminded by dark rock icon Glenn Danzig, as an avenue for darker and more extreme bands to reach their countless fans. The inaugural tour took place in 2003 followed by runs in 2005, 2006 and 2008 with Danzig headlining and dark/extreme metal luminaries such as Dimmu Borgir, Superjoint Ritual, Lacuna Coil, Opeth and Behemoth appearing on BLACKEST OF THE BLACK over the years.

This summer saw the release of Danzig’s first new studio album in over six years, Deth Red Sabaoth (Evilive/The End). It debuted at #36 on the Billboard Top 200, stayed in the CMJ Loud Rock top 3 for 5 weeks (holding the #1 spot for 3 weeks) and received overwhelmingly positive laudations by the press:  

“It’s wonderful to hear Danzig & Co. do that voodoo they do so well … the new record delivers the thrills and chills that fans would hope for, and that Danzig, at his best, is so good at serving up.” – Revolver (****)

“Danzig makes a case for the existence of classic, bluesy metal in 2010.” – CMJ
