DANZIG ANNOUNCES EAST COAST/WEST COAST LIVE DATES
Glenn and Doyle Reunite on The Road and in The Studio

Los Angeles, CA - September 20, 2007 -- Glenn Danzig will hit the road
beginning in late October for a handful of live concert dates on both the
East and West coasts. Joining Danzig on these dates will be bassist Steve
Zing (Samhain) and guitarist Todd Youth (Danzig, Murphy's Law); former
Misfits axe man Doyle Von Frankenstein and his new band Gorgeous
Frankenstein, will support on all dates.

Glenn and Doyle have been in the studio recording Doyle¹s first solo album,
³Gorgeous Frankenstein,² which Danzig produced and will release on October
16 on his label, evilive. According to Glenn, he and Doyle recorded ³eight
blood-curdling tracks² that include ³Man or Monster,² ³Devilgirl,² ³Reverse
of God,² and ³Made In Hell.² The two played all instruments on the album.

These Danzig dates are also in support of ³The Lost Tracks of Danzig,² the
two-CD set that was released May 29, as well as Glenn¹s limited edition book
³Drukija, Contessa of Blood,² loosely based on the legend of 17th century
vampire, Countess Elizabeth Bathory, and illustrated by long time
collaborator Simon Bisley. ³The Lost Tracks² is comprised of 26 previously
unreleased tracks that span Danzig's entire career and were originally
recorded during the band's seven-album "arc" that began with 1988's
"Danzig."

Long before Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson or Guns N' Roses, there was
Glenn Danzig. Danzig is arguably the most versatile talent to ! emerge from
hardcore's first wave -- a graphic designer, photographer, comic book
publisher and composer who writes all his bands' music. His songs have been
covered by Guns N' Roses, Metallica and My Chemical Romance. He's written
for Johnny Cash and Roy Orbison. Glenn Danzig has received many titles, from
the Godfather of Dark Metal to a man of integrity, but most agree that over
his three-decades career, his intense musical and lyrical statements have
left a permanent mark on rock music.

Founder of the Misfits, that band pioneered dark horror/hardcore punk and
has become a seminal band of the genre, despite only six years and a few
albums. The goth metal-punk band Samhain quickly followed and in just
another few years became a noted outfit. Darker than Samhain, Danzig's music
evolved into a potent mix of gothic metal and blues with a Satanic twist. In
2006, the ever-surprising Glenn Danzig released his second classical album,
"Black Aria 2," which debuted in the! Top Ten - imagine, the Godfather of
Dark Metal keeping co mpany on the Billboard classical chart with Itzhak
Perlman and Andrea Bocelli.

Follows are the confirmed Danzig east and west coast dates. Other than these
shows, Danzig has no plans to do any touring in the foreseeable future.
