VENOMOUS RAT REGENERATION VENDOR [2013]

Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor” marks the fifth solo studio release from Rob Zombie. The album is the first to feature drummer Ginger Fish – formerly of Marilyn Manson – who joined the band, replacing Joey Jordison.

Zombie released the album on his new record label Zodiac Swan Records, in conjunction with T-Boy Records and Universal Music. In it’s first week Venomous Rat debuted at number 7 on the Billboard 200 Charts.

Venomous Rat was produced by Bob Marlene, a long-term friend of guitarist John 5 who had worked previously with artists including Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper and Lynryd Skynryd. Also working on the album in their first collaboration was programmer Zuess, who has continued to work with Zombie on other music projects.

Speaking to Artist Direct prior to the albums release Zombie explained he considered a film in the future based on the album. “I think it could. I made it with that in mind. At least in my mind — no one else knows this — I wanted to have a storyline that runs through the record so if someday I wanted to make it into a movie musical like The Who’s ‘Tommy’ or ‘Quadrophenia’, there was a structure to follow. I’m not really talking about what it is because I think it’s sort of relevant at this point.”

Radio has changed our lives and practically saved our lives
Radio has changed our lives and practically saved our livesOh Yeah!I want to tell you about Dead City Radio man
And the New Gods of Supertown
A world of Magic Lanterns and Chemical Blues

Misspent youth
I’m a Rhinestone Tiger in a Leisure SuitTurn it up! Turn it up! Turn it up! Oh Yeah![Hook]

Nothing ever happens until you medicate
The Witch Queen of Mongo
And Hail the passing of King George
Everybody is eating on behalf of the Gods
With their Plastic Necks and Silver Teeth[Verse 2]
Is there life beyond what you know?
Hallucination thrives on my stereo
Astonishing Skeptics
Wasted Youth
She’s and Angel of Odd in her Birthday SuitTurn it up turn it up turn it up
Oh YeahWe listen to the Radio – Dead Radio (X2)It’s right here now that we best serve the Beast of Transmission
And the cool passing wave of ignorance
They say the heart is a lonely hunter
And the hardbox comes with a crime inside
OH YEAH!We listen to the Radio – Dead Radio (x2)

Was waitin’ for the band to return from the show
Feelin’ good, feelin’ right, it’s Saturday night
The hotel detective, he was out-a-sight
Now, these fine ladies, they had a plan
They was out to meet the boys in the band
They said, “Come on, dudes, let’s get it on,”
And we proceeded to tear that hotel downWe’re an American band
We’re an American band
