Check Out Rob Zombie’s Speedy New Single “The Eternal Struggles of the Howling Man”

Last week, shock rock ultraczar Rob Zombie teased the release of a new single. Now, Rob has followed up on his promise, and has dropped a video for his brand-new track “The Eternal Struggles of the Howling Man.”

The track, the second from Zombie’s upcoming album The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy, definitely shakes things up from where fans were left by previous single “The Triumph of King Freak (A Crypt of Preservation and Conspiracy).” While that song was an ultra-heavy plod that emphasized its stomp and psychedelic elements, this one goes fast and fun, with a solid dose of hot rod spookiness (and includes a funk breakdown in the middle while Rob chants “Power to the people!” — hey, it wouldn’t be a Rob Zombie track if there wasn’t the faint suggestion that he wished it was 1979).

Meanwhile, the video is studio footage spliced with live performances and animated sections, and mostly makes us wish that we lived somewhere that looks even slightly as cool as where Rob records.

Check out the video for “The Eternal Struggles of the Howling Man” below:
