Rob Zombie Sets Date For Solo Album

Rob Zombie may be stepping away from White Zombie for a solo album, but he certainly isn't stepping away from the horror-metal that band is known for.

Zombie's anticipated solo effort, titled "Hellbilly Deluxe," will arrive on August 25 and will boast appearances by Tommy Lee, White Zombie's John Tempesta, and Danny Lohner and Charlie Clouser of Nine Inch Nails.

Zombie will also flash his affinity for 50s hot rods and B-grade horror with the album's first single, "Dragula," a tribute to Grandpa Munster's wheels from "The Munsters."

As we reported earlier this week (see "Limp Bizkit Talks About Joining Ice Cube, Rob Zombie, Korn For Family Values"), Zombie will support the album with a turn on the inaugural outing of the Family Values tour. He will join Korn, Ice Cube, Limp Bizkit, and Orgy when the tour kicks off in September.
