Big news for W.A.S.P. fans.
It’s official that the band will perform the song “Animal (F*ck Like A Beast)” on the band’s upcoming 40th-anniversary tour.
This was confirmed by Blackie Lawless in a new interview with Eddie Trunk.
“I don’t know [if we will play it]. There’s a part of me that says it’s already out there. You can’t put the genie back in the bottle. Do I owe it to the fanbase to really make this a true retrospect of what we’ve done. If I had to give you an answer right now, I would say I’m leaning in the direction of doing it.”
Asked why he dropped “Animal” from W.A.S.P.‘s live set in the first place, Lawless said:
“Two reasons. Number one, my religious convictions. [Because of] my Christian faith, I thought, ‘Well, this is not really something that I wanna say.’ But also, there was another reason as well. We were doing more serious material. Do you really want that conflict of messaging going on at the same time. So there was a two-fold reason for it.
