AFM Records have announced the return of Glenn Danzig with 'Black Laden Crown', his first album of new material in over seven years, which is due for release on Friday 12th May 2017.

Following on his historic reunion with the classic Misfits line-up, attended by record numbers at last year's Riot Fest in Denver and Chicago, it has been announced that Danzig will be headlining the Blackest of the Black Festival - two days of non-stop music and mayhem taking place at Oak Canyon Park in Silverado, CA on Friday 26th and Saturday 27th May.

Danzig will close the festivities on Saturday 27th May, headlining a bill featuring more than twenty artists playing amidst a full scale takeover and transformation of the Oak Canyon Park grounds, featuring literally dozens of attractions, vendors, performers and other surprises musical and otherwise.

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.

Additionally, this summer marks the 25th Anniversary of the classic 'Danzig III: How The Gods Kill' album which was produced by Danzig himself and featured the unforgettable cover adorned by HR 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'.
