Video Premiere: JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES' 'Zoinks!'
January 1, 2019
JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES — comprised of former MARILYN MANSON and current ROB ZOMBIE guitarist John 5, bassist Ian Ross and drummer Logan Miles Nix — has released the official music video for the song "Zoinks!" The track is taken from JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES' new full-length studio album, "Invasion", which will be made available later this year.
In the tradition of "Scooby Doo" and "Groovie Goolies", the "Zoinks!" video features an innovative blend of classic 2D hand-drawn animation, 3D computer-generated imagery and live action. The video is written and directed by Disney animator Brett Broggs ("Frozen", "Wreck-It Ralph"),with live footage shot by Matt Zane. The video also features the voice acting talents of Nikki Sixx (MÖTLEY CRÜE),Susan Olsen (known for her role as Cindy Brady on "The Brady Bunch"),and Fred Coury (CINDERELLA). Coury also is credited for scoring the video alongside John 5.
The official release date for "Invasion" will be announced soon. The disc was produced and mixed by Barry Pointer, and will be made available via a series of music videos, just as John 5 released his 2017 LP, "Season Of The Witch".
In celebration of the upcoming album, JOHN 5 AND THE CREATURES will kick off the second leg of their North American "Invasion" tour on February 22 in Anaheim, California. The tour will feature support from blues-rock guitarist Jared James Nichols.
