Rob Zombie rose to prominence in the 90s as the frontman for White Zombie, a nontraditional heavy metal band that scored a bunch of huge rock hits like "Thunder Kiss '65," "Black Sunshine," "More Human Than Human," and "I'm Your Boogie Man." Ironically, the band can trace their success in 1993 from the adult animated show, Beavis and Butt-Head. The cartoon duo enjoyed the group's "Welcome to Planet M.F." from White Zombie's 1992 album La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol. 1, which had sold just 75,000 copies. After the video aired and Beavis declared that "White Zombie rules!" sales of La Sexorcisto quadrupled, and the album hit the Top 40 of the Billboard album chart.
His solo career was even more successful, with his horror-inflected and retro stage show and recordings like "Living Dead Girl," "Dragula," and "Foxy, Foxy." Then he became a highly regarded horror director, helming his own works like House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects, while also successfully rebooting the Halloween franchise.
Over the past two years, Rob Zombie has headlined 11 festivals. However, the outrageous shock-rocker hasn’t mounted a proper tour since 2019. Freaks on Parade will also serve as the unofficial live debut of Zombie’s 2021 album, The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy.
Illinois-based Mudvayne formed almost 30 years ago and rose to success in the mid 90s. Known for their face paint, wild stage presence and experimentation, it makes sense that the heavy metal band will join Mr. Zombie on a nationwide tour this summer. On April 19, 2021, Mudvayne announced that they had reunited and would play their first shows in 12 years, followed by their first US tour in 13 years in 2022, and the members of Mudvayne have reportedly discussed the possibility of new material.
