Rob Zombie, founder and frontman of metal band White Zombie as well as a writer and director, will be releasing his next film The Lords of Salem on April 19th. The film features Zombie's wife Sheri Moon as a Rush-loving DJ turned coven member. Blabbermouth also reports that the soundtrack will include Rush's The Spirit of Radio along with classic tracks from The Velvet Underground, Manfred Mann, Rick James and an original score by Zombie's guitarist John 5. The soundtrack releases on April 16th and is now available for pre-order at this location. Zombie is a well-known Rush fan and is often spotted in public wearing a Fly by Night shirt. You may also recall that Zombie's remake of the original Halloween movie included Rush's Tom Sawyer on the soundtrack, and his 2010 album Hellbilly Deluxe 2 contains a track titled Werewolf, Baby which contains an obvious nod to Rush's La Villa Strangiato towards the beginning of the song.
