ROB ZOMBIE DISCUSSES HIS NEW ALBUM, “THE ELECTRIC WARLOCK ACID WITCH SATANIC ORGY CELEBRATION DISPENSER,” AND SAYS, “IT’S A SHORT RECORD, AND THE SONGS ARE SHORT”

Rolling Stone reports:

Rob Zombie [has released a new album on April 29th], and it has a psychedelic, eye-popping title, The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser. “To me, that [title] is what the record sounded like,” he tells magazine.

…When asked about how he challenges himself while making LPs some 30 years into his career, counting White Zombie, he says his main goal is to make something interesting. It’s an objective that applies to his whole outlook on life. “I live in such a fear of being boring,” he says.

It seems the only thing he has time for is song and album titles. “With this record, one thing I tried to do is keep it short. It’s a short record, and the songs are short,” he continues. “Whenever I go through records that I love and I listen to over and over and over, I go, ‘Man, this record is short. That’s why I loved it so much. It’s 30 minutes, so I’ve listened to it 9,000 times.’ … I go back and look at Beatles records, the songs are a minute-and-a-half long. … I love long songs, but if you’re going to write a song that long, it better be Freebird or Stairway to Heaven.”
