Supporting acts for the tour, as previously posted, will be LACUNA COIL and BULLET FOR MY VALENTINE.
“Educated Horses” was produced by ROB ZOMBIE and long time producer Scott Humphrey (METALLICA, MOTLEY CRUE), who together also produced the platinum hits “Hellbilly Deluxe” and “The Sinister Urge”. Other musicians contributing to the CD are Josh Freese (A PERFECT CIRCLE, THE VANDALS) and Tommy Lee. The album’s debut single, the anthemic “Foxy Foxy,” will begin play on Modern Rock and Active Rock radio on February 13.
ROB ZOMBIE, a prolific video director in his own right having directed over twenty five videos, will direct the video for “Foxy Foxy” in Los Angeles in mid-February.
