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!

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.

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!”

On 8 November, 2018, John 5 and The Creatures took their #famousmonsterstour to Manchester Music Hall in Lexington.

Side Stage Magazine were there to watch the show and gave this review:

“Now more than halfway through the show John 5 takes one of only two short breaks to address the crowd; “Thank everyone for coming out, it looks like we have some repeat offenders, some Creatures who are traveling to see us at several shows – which we love”. He goes on “I do this because I love playing guitar, really no other reason, I just love playing for you” The next song is from our upcoming album due out in January, it’s called “Zoinks” followed by the “Nut Jam” and “Behind the Nut Love”.”

[REVIEW] John 5 and The Creatures deliver a “kick-ass great show” at The Forge in Joilet, IL

John 5 and The Creatures Famous Monsters Tour 2018

John 5 and The Creatures Famous Monsters Tour 2018

On November 1, John 5 and The Creatures took their #FamousMonstersTour show, with Hellzapoppin’ Circus Revue and Wednesday 13, to Illinois. They played a show at The Forge in Joilet.

On hand to watch the show was Go Venue Magazine and they have written a review of the evening.

“Going through riff after riff the energy of the crowd continued to increase song after song. In unison, the fans start lurching back-and-forth and thrashing together. The energy of this place increases and the smile on John 5‘s face, even underneath all that stage make up, grows exponentially. I have got to say this guy really enjoys what he does and brings an energy to any space he occupies. It is simply enthralling to experience.”

I love the story of Mozart and he was a REAL…they say he was the only REAL genius in…you know, the history of man because of the fact he was doing all these things as a baby, as a kid, you know, as like a 4 year old, a 5 year old, a 6 year old.

He also clears up how a throwaway joke comment made by best friend Nikki Sixx, suddenly became an internet rumour, then a number of articles….. “You know, me and Nikki are like best friends … we’re just … always says funny, silly things, you know, on Instagram in our comments … so he was just saying that on the Instagram comments.”

Loudwire reviews John 5 and The Creatures at the Whisky A Go Go

Check out this fantastic write-up from our friends at Loudwire for the recent John 5 and The Creatures show at the world famous Whisky A Go Go on LA’s Sunset Strip.

The Creatures were joined by some very special guests, including Nikki Sixx, Scott Ian and his wife, the singer Pearl Aday and “the number one reason I picked up guitar“, Mr Ace Frehley.

J5 speaks to LA Weekly about his show at the Whisky: “It’s gonna be insane”.

From LA Weekly:

John 5 knows a thing or two about showmanship. After all, the enigmatic and gifted guitarist has proven his worth performing alongside David Lee Roth, Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie — three of the greatest and more theatrical hard-rock frontmen.

He’s stood right next to these guys and studied them, taking mental notes of every move, every utterance, every stage prop that they used to keep their crowds enthralled. And the work was worth it because, with his band The Creatures, John 5 finds himself the center of attention.”

John 5 speaks to the East Valley Tribune; “There’s a connection during those shows. It’s really wonderful”.

From East Valley Tribune:

Donning extravagant costumes while on tour with Rob Zombie, guitarist John 5 is used to having sweat in his eyes and makeup running down his face. For the native of Grosse Pointe, Michigan, Arizona’s intense heat makes it even better, he said.

“Usually when we tour with Rob Zombie, it’s the summer,” John 5 said. “They call me the ‘lizard’ because I love it. I’ll be outside and everybody else will in the air conditioning. It’s really weird. I love it. I sweat and everything, but I love it.”

When John 5 returns to the Valley on Wednesday, April 4, as a solo artist, he’ll play indoors at Club Red in Mesa.”

John 5 talks to In The Loop about touring, KISS and the forthcoming Rob Zombie album

From In The Loop Magazine:

In The Loop Magazine’s Christopher David recently had a chat with guitar legend in the making, John 5. John 5 has been around for some time now playing with iconic industrial metal bands like Marilyn Manson and Rob Zombie, but he’s been building his own fan base strong for many years as well with his own solo work.

John 5 and The Creatures played at Reggies Rock Club in Chicago to a completely packed house filled with fans from all his works. This is his third time around with the Creatures and each time has grown larger and larger. So much so that if he does this again next year, might need to look into a larger venue.”
