As previously reported, Rob Zombie has announced he'll begin recording his fifth studio album on June 1. In an interview with ARTISTDirect.com , the singer reveals that he has a definite plan for how the record will sound.

“We just want to make a dark, heavy, weird record and stick to that idea,” says Zombie. “If something comes up that isn't, we won't finish it. We'll stick to the plan. You may say that when you start recording. Then other songs start happening that don't really fit that and you go with it. This time, we're really going to stay on task.”

The singer added that he’s excited to have ex- Marilyn Manson drummer Ginger Fish behind the drum kit as they prepare to hit the road with Megadeth .  “He's a phenomenal drummer,” notes Zombie. “His strong point is his groove playing, which is great. There are certain songs we've played for years that have never quite sounded right. A song like "More Human than Human" has a repetitive groove. If you don't really get the groove down, the song can be really monotonous to listen to and he nailed it.”

Zombie will kick off his co-headlining tour with Megadeth on May 11 at PNC Bank Arts Center in Homdel, NJ.
