W.A.S.P. have announced, via their Official Facebook Page, the cancellation of their upcoming summer festival dates:
“The recording of the new album, Re-Idolized, and the accompanying film for The Crimson Idol has developed unexpected delays. This will make it necessary for W.A.S.P. to withdraw from the four upcoming festivals that were scheduled for this summer. This was essential for the band to complete the album and film, to make the scheduled release in September, and the ensuing tour in the fall.”
Watch below the first official trailer for W.A.S.P.’s upcoming 25th anniversary release, Re-Idolized:
In 1992 W.A.S.P. released “The Crimson Idol”. It’s the story of Jonathan Aaron Steele, an abused child looking for love. Discovering music years later, he rises to international superstardom. Later followed by a catastrophic fall.
“The Crimson Idol” is still considered to be the best album of W.A.S.P.’s career, and one of the greatest concept albums of all times! “The Crimson Idol” undoubtedly belongs in every metal head’s record collection. The album about the anti-hero Jonathan Steele was originally intended to be accompanied by a movie, with several hundred hours of film that were shot to create approximately 50 minutes of movie footage.
This film has never been released – Until now!
Napalm Records proudly announces “RE-IDOLZED”, the 25th anniversary of the iconic hit album plus the original “The Crimson Idol” movie on DVD and Blu-ray! For the first time EVER as originally intended, released in one product!
“RE-IDOLIZED” will be available on Blu-ray, DVD, CD, and vinyl later this year!
