Interview Done By Mike Wilkerson
MW: Please introduce yourself
King Zombie: Hello everybody, I am King Zombie, frontman of the Devil’s Rejects.
MW: What made you decide to do a Rob Zombie tribute?
King Zombie: I love Rob Zombie as an artist and admire his different types of art. I’ve never seen a tribute band of him in my country, just one in the whole europe and it was more a cover than a tribute band. I wasn’t satisfied with this situation, so I decided to create a band who deserves to be called a “tribute”
MW: What is your favorite song to play live?
King Zombie: Maybe “What?”. I love all of his songs, but this one sounds better live than studio to me, so I love to play it and make everyone scream and dance, as a hell of a party.
MW: Give me a sample song list?
King Zombie: We play the same tracklist of Zombie himself, from the classics: Dragula, Superbeast, Living Dead Girl, to the new stuff.We usually play two or more songs from each album.
MW: How many shows a year does the Devil’s Rejects do?
King Zombie: The first tour we made included ten shows, from October to April. This time we’re touring with the Manson Elite (Marilyn Manson Tribute). We named the tour “The Twins of Evil” of course, and we’re playing more than the last year.
MW: Where are some of the places you have played?
King Zombie: We’ve been traveling through the whole country (especially north Italy) wich is a good thing I guess.
MW: What has been your biggest crowd? And where?
King Zombie: At Exenzia Club in Prato (Italy), on the Halloween night of course. That was an hell of a show and the crowd was amazing.
MW: What can fans expect from the Devil’s Rejects in 2013?
King Zombie: We’re working on adding some new songs from “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor”, you’re surely going to listen to our version of “Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Supertown”
MW: Do you have stuff you sale at shows?
