Danzig to Embark on North American Summer 2013 Tour With Scar the Martyr + Huntress

Danzig will be taking Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison’s new band Scar the Martyr and the up-and-coming metal act Huntress for a North American summer tour. The trek kicks off Aug. 9 in Toronto (see dates below).

Danzig are celebrating the 25th anniversary of their 1988 self-titled debut album, and frontman Glenn Danzig will also be performing classic hits from his iconic band the Misfits with guitarist Doyle.

Glenn Danzig is also working on a new covers album and talked to Full Metal Jackie about the upcoming release.

“My idea of covers is that you should never cover a song and do it exactly like the artist because everyone’s always going to compare it to the way the original artists did it and they’re just going to go ‘Oh I like the original better.’ I wanted to make it my own and take it in a different direction, maybe a different direction they didn’t really think of at the time or would never think of because I have a much different background than they do.”

Scar the Martyr are Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison‘s new side project. The lineup also includes lead vocalist and co-writer Henry Derek, keyboardist Chris Vrenna (who previously played drums for Nine Inch Nails), former Strapping Young Lad guitarist Jed Simon and former Darkest Hour guitarist Kris Norris. Their debut album is scheduled to be released this fall.

Huntress just released their sophomore album ‘Starbound Beast,’ and are currently on the with bands such as Amon AmarthMastodonFive Finger Death Punch and Rob Zombie.
