Performer Mag talks new LP, new tour & more with John 5

John 5 is the cover artist for Performer Magazines big interview in their Dec/Jan ’19 issue out now.

In the article which is available to purchase here, or read online, John talks about his upcoming Invasion tour with Jared James Nichols, releasing the next Creatures album via a series of unique music videos (see the first video ZOINKS! here), his influences, his work with Rob Zombie, advice for fellow musicians and how his creative process works:

“I’m always honest with myself. So, what that means is…it’s hard to explain. I love to play a certain way, I love to sit on the couch and play guitar. That’s all that I do, and I love playing different styles of music. If something is done really well, I’m into it. So, that’s what keeps me always playing, and keeps me trying to master all these different styles.

So that’s what I do on my records. If I love Chet Atkins, I’m going to put that on my record. It’s a little unorthodox, with all these different kinds of styles, but I love it and it’s honest. And I think that’s what people enjoy about the records; it’s just who I am. I’m not trying to be something I’m not.”

John 5 and The Creatures Invasion 2019

JOHN 5 and The Creatures are following up on this year’s live album release, It’s Alive!, with a brand new full-length studio album coming in 2019! The new album, entitled Invasion, will be teased on New Year’s Day 2019 by way of a brand new music video for the new track Zoinks! In the tradition of Scooby Doo and Groovie Goolies, Zoinks! is 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. It stars the voice talents of John 5 as himself and Fred Coury as Dirty Chavez, it also features guest stars Susan Olsen (The Brady Bunch), Jess Harnell (Animaniacs,Transformers), Nikki Sixx (Motley Crue) and John 5’s lovely wife Rita. There is an additional score on the video by by Fred Coury (Cinderella) and John 5.

Fans should stay tuned for the video coming on New Year’s Day! The official release date for Invasion will be announced in 2019. Invasion was produced and mixed by Barry Pointer, and will be released via a series of music videos, just as JOHN 5 released his 2017 studio release, Season of the Witch.

In celebration of the upcoming album, JOHN 5 and The Creatures will kick off the second leg of his North American Invasion Tour on February 22, 2019 in Las Vegas, NV. The tour will feature support from blues-rock guitarist Jared James NicholsJOHN 5 says, “Get ready for the Invasion tour! I will be playing some new songs from my new record, Invasion, a brand new medley, and much more. I’m really excited to have Jared James Nichols out with us. This tour is something you’re not going to want to miss!”

Jared James Nichols adds, “As a young budding guitarist, I grew up with a Guitar World cut out picture of JOHN 5 on my bedroom wall. He was always one of my ‘Guitar heroes’. He is the total package… insane technique, amazing musicality, with a style and look all of his own. Needless to say, when I got the call for this tour, my jaw dropped. I’m absolutely honored to warm up the stage for him every night across America and Canada. I’m getting my chops ready to tear it up!”
