JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES — comprised of world-renowned guitarist John 5 (ROB ZOMBIE, MARILYN MANSON), bassist Ian Ross and drummer Logan Miles Nix — have released their latest music video, "I Want It All". The song is taken from JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES' new album, "Invasion", which is being released today (Wednesday, July 31).
Brought to life by the same team that created "Crank It - Living With Ghosts" — director Israel Perez, art director Cody Varona and producer Nicole Hatley, with wardrobe by Forgotten Saints LA — the "I Want It All" video is a zany romp featuring some bodacious babes quite literally sustaining life via their Instagram feeds.
"Invasion" was produced and mixed by Barry Pointer at Riot House Studio and is described in a press release as "a diverse progression of the sound that John 5 fans have grown to expect from the eclectic virtuoso."
John 5 says: "I'm super excited for this record to finally come out, for fans to see the new video, 'I Want It All', and to announce a new tour to follow in the fall very soon! I want to thank all of our fans for all of their support!"
"Invasion" track listing:
02. I Am John 5
03. Midnight Mass
06. Crank It / Living With Ghosts
07. Cactus Flower
08. I Want It All
09. I Like The Funk
10. Constant Sorrow
John told "Wired In The Empire" about "Invasion": "It's something I've been working on for a long time and I'm releasing a new song and a new video every month. I think it's a really great way to do something like that. It keeps the record alive and keeps people interested in what's going on with everything so a record doesn't die in a month or something. It keeps the record alive for a little while and it's wonderful. It really has been working out well. The songs — we've been having a lot of fun playing them and we've really been having a great time."
JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES will team up with THE ARISTOCRATS for a co-headlining show on Sunday, September 1 at 1720 in Los Angeles. The show will be the first John 5 performance following the release of "Invasion".
John 5 has worked with a varied range of artists, performing as guitarist for some of the biggest headlining rock bands in the world such as ROB ZOMBIE and MARILYN MANSON, as well as playing session with Paul Stanley, Rod Stewart, LYNYRD SKYNYRD and more. Slash has called John 5 "one of the most mind-blowing guitarists around," and Rob Zombie has dubbed him "a fucking shredder." John 5 has released seven solo albums to date, as well as a remix album, and has written music for the likes of Avril Lavigne, GARBAGE, Ricky Martin and others.
