GLENN DANZIG has been confirmed as a special guest at The Rue Morgue Festival Of Fear in Toronto, ON. Dubbed "The Canadian National Horror Expo," Festival Of Fear runs August 27th to 29th in the South Building of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre.
The Rue Morgue Festival Of Fear is Canada's largest horror expo, attracting an average of 40,000+ fans to the heart of downtown Toronto over three days in August. This powerhouse event is an extravaganza of celebrity guests, autograph signings, parties, Q&A; sessions, seminars and workshops, and a colossal selection of movies and movie memorabilia, including books, comic books, toys, video games, trading cards, posters, anime, manga, and tons more.
The press release detailing Glenn Danzig's appearance reads as follows:
With over eight million records sold, Glenn Danzig forms one third of the dark triumvirate of horror rock and roll alongside ALICE COOPER and BLACK SABBATH. As the formative member of THE MISFITS, Danzig brought his fascination with film and comic book horror to modern punk rock; with the heavy metal-oriented SAMHAIN, Danzig further developed his dark obsessions pushed to extremes. Following the demise of Samhain, Danzig formed his own eponymous band with ex-Samhain guitarist John Christ, Eerie Von on bass, and hardcore drummer Chuck Biscuits.
Danzig's talent also includes musical compositions for such projects as ROB ZOMBIE's Halloween, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, The X-Files and has had his seminal hit 'Mother' appear in the popular video game Guitar Hero 2. Also, Danzig owns and operates his adult horror oriented comic book company Verotik.
This year, Danzig is poised to unleash his first full length record in six years titled Deth Red Sabaoth and the much anticipated lyric book Hidden Lyrics Of The Left Hand illustrated by renowned artist Simon Bisley (Judge Dred, Lobo).
