Following on his historic reunion with the classic Misfits lineup attended by record numbers at last year’s Riot Fest in Denver and Chicago, Danzig recently announced 2017’s Blackest of the Black Festival: Two days of non-stop music and mayhem taking place at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, CA on May 26th and 27th. Danzig will close the festivities May 27th, headlining a bill featuring more than 20 artists playing amidst a full scale takeover and transformation of the park grounds featuring literally dozens of attractions, vendors, performers, and other surprises musical and otherwise.
BLACK LADEN CROWN physical formats will be available for sale on site at Blackest Of The Black.
Blackest Of The Black promises to create a site-wide atmosphere like no festival before or since. A full rundown of performers and attractions will be announced shortly. Check www.BlackestFest.com for tickets, news, and further details as they are confirmed.
Additionally, this summer marks the 25th Anniversary of the classic DANZIG III: HOW THE GODS KILL. Produced by Danzig himself and featuring the unforgettable cover adorned by H.R. Giger’s Meister und Margeritha (The Master and Margarita), HOW THE GODS KILL was the first DANZIG album to crack Billboard’s Top 30 and inspired Rolling Stone to rave in its review at the time, “Rock is alarmingly short of visionaries these days; Danzig is the genuine article.”
Danzig will be performing a limited number of shows this summer, commemorating the occasion with live performances of numerous songs from HOW THE GODS KILL.
