In a 2017 interview with Rolling Stone, Glenn said: “I don’t tour. To me, touring is going out for a month on a bus. I don’t do that anymore. [Laughs] What I do now is play shows where I can fly in and out. I’m not bouncing around on a tour bus anymore.”
Asked why he dislikes touring, Glenn said: “I’ve been doing it my whole life. I have so much going on [at home], and I can’t get any work done on the road. It’s great going out and performing for everybody — that’s the only good part of the whole day. But that’s two hours, okay? The rest of the day is wasted.”
DANZIG was formed in 1987 after Glenn‘s involvement with horror-punks the MISFITS and gothic hard rockers SAMHAIN.
DANZIG‘s latest album, “Black Laden Crown”, came out in May 2017 via Evilive Records/Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
