Rob Zombie Signs with Roadrunner Records!

Hellbilly Deluxe 2I am sure it seems like we are on the Rob Zombie bandwagon here.  I respect the hell out of the guy for all he has brought to the world of music, movies, comics and more.  That kind of fits our slogan here at Why So Blu if you think about it.  Anyway, the latest news I dug up today comes as quite a shock to me.  It has to be a great thing for Rob, or I am sure he would not have done it, but its the fans who are going to have to suffer a little longer while we anxiously wait for his Hellbilly Deluxe 2 album to drop.  Originally scheduled for November 17th, the word out on the street is that we will not see it until early 2010.  That’s kind of a bummer for the fans because I always disliked going to the concerts and not knowing the new songs that were being played.  Having the new album in your hands at least a week before the shows, in my younger days, was always a plus!  So I thought I would do my journalistic duties by spreading the word and I have attached the full press release below from Rob Zombie’s official website.
