With his latest remake of the “Halloween” horror franchise on the silver screen and a new album on its way, horror-metal maven Rob Zombie is hitting the road with his Hellbilly Deluxe 2 Tour.

The North American venture will hit 28 cities over the course of five weeks. The tour launches on October 29 at Dodge Theatre in Phoenix, AZ, and continues through a December 5 session at 9:30 Club in Washington, DC.

The late fall itinerary also includes shows on October 31 at the Hollywood Palladium in Hollywood, CA; November 10 at Austin Music Hall in Austin, TX; November 22 at Aragon Ballroom in Chicago, IL; and December 1 at Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, NY.

Zombie will also hit two Canadian markets, which are booked near the end of his currently confirmed calendar. The Hellbilly tour strikes north of the border on November 28 at Sound Academy in Toronto, ON, and November 29 at Metropolis in Montreal, QC.

Tickets for the tour are now on sale. Zombie will be backed on stage by guitarist Johnny 5, bassist Piggy D and drummer Tommy Clufetos, who have been performing with the former White Zombie frontman for about four years. Concerts will also include support from Nekromantix, as well as Captain Clegg & The Night Creatures.

Zombie will be on the road promoting his latest studio album, “Hellbilly Deluxe 2,” due in stores on November 10. The effort is Zombie’s fourth album since his 1998 solo debut “Hellbilly Deluxe,” but it is also the first of his solo endeavors to feature the studio work of other musicians.

“It’s the first full-fledged band I’ve had since White Zombie,” Zombie explained in a late 2008 interview with Rolling Stone. “I’ve always had a revolving roster of studio and touring musicians, but the three guys in my band now have been on tour with me for years. So we’re making it a band. It’s called Rob Zombie, but we’re treating it like a band.”

Zombie added, “I never liked being solo. I just did that because White Zombie became an unworkable situation. But you want to be in a band. The camaraderie is what’s fun about it. There’s nothing fun about a guy by himself in a studio.”
