I saw some kid wearing a Misfits t-shirt the other day. I'm not familiar with them, but I wonder if the kid was either.

Not a particularly great band, IMHO. Kind of inconsistent (even for a punk band) and very gimmicky these days... but the Danzig years produced some pretty good tunes.

The great thing about The Misfits is that if you don't like a particular song, it'll be over in just a minute. Literally. :lol:

Their early "classic" stuff always reminded me of the Ramones, if that's any help.

Metallica has covered Last Caress, Green Hell and Die, Die My Darling. Those are all Misfits jams.

Commented Graves: "I have been a performer for 17 years and have had the chance to travel the world and experience so many incredible people along the way. I live for performing and have been on tour so much that I haven't had the ability to record a new album in over four years. Working in conjunction with Kickstarter, I now have the ability to access those who mean the most — my fans — and create something unique for them."

According to Graves. the "Vagabond" CD offered on Kickstarter will not be available at any other point of distribution, making this release an exclusive, limited-edition album.

MISFITS will release their first "proper" live album since the 1980s, "Dea.d. Alive!", on February 5 on CD and limited-edition 12-inch vinyl plus MP3 card.

With select tracks from the band's encore set at their hometown show in New Jersey added for good measure, (recorded live on "Devil's Night," no less), "Dea.d. Alive!" is an audio Molotov cocktail guaranteed to have bonfires burning bright with pumpkin faces, day or night, all year round. Speakers will virtually melt as a torrential downpour of "Devil's Rain" engulfs the senses, catapulting you front row center into a jam-packed house of horrors.

The diverse set of modern day MISFITS classics included range from current hits like "Land Of The Dead" and "Curse Of The Mummy's Hand", on through all-new live versions of earlier-era material like "Scream!", "Dig Up Her Bones", "Helena" and more — recorded live, with a level of precision and intensity garnered in over three decades of horror business. In addition to 13 fiendish faves from the band's cryptic catalog, the live set also includes a cover version of the anthem "Science Fiction/Double Feature" (from the cult classic "Rocky Horror Picture Show") performed by the MISFITS for the first time ever on any release!

The first pressing will be made available on solid gold vinyl limited to 1,500 pieces.

"Dea.d. Alive!" track listing:

01. The Devil's Rain (3:39)
02. Vivid Red (1:44)
03. Land of the Dead (2:00)
04. Curse of the Mummy's Hand (3:18)
05. Cold in Hell (1:54)
06. Dark Shadows (3:18)
07. Death Ray (4:02)
08. Shining (2:39)
09. American Psycho (1:56)
10. Dig Up Her Bones (2:26)
11. Scream! (2:22)

DOYLE, the project led by former MISFITS guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein, has just released its new album, "Abominator", digitally via iTunes, Google Play and CDBaby. The effort, which also features Alex Story (CANCERSLUG) on vocals and Dr. Chud (MISFITS) on drums, will be made available as a full official physical CD digipak (jam-packed with "extras") in a few months. Special advanced copies are available now during the DANZIG 25th-anniversary tour and 50 copies will be in stock per show.

A horror-based hard rock/metal band of epic proportions, DOYLE's lineup is rounded out by Graham (GRAVES, LET IT BURN) on bass, unifying the skull-crushing sound that is the machine Doyle himself has put together. DOYLE cranks out music "as scary as the MISFITS, as doom-laden as BLACK SABBATH, and has the same hard-hitting in your face style of metal as MOTÖRHEAD or SLAYER," according to a press release.

"Abominator" track listing:

01. Abominator
02. Learn To Bleed
03. Dreamingdeadgirls
04. Headhunter
05. Valley Of Shadows
06. Land Of The Dead
07. Cemeterysexxx
08. Love Like Murder
09. Mark Of The Beast
10. Bloodstains
11. Hope Hell Is Warm

DOYLE is currently in the middle of mixing and finishing up the follow-up to "Abominator", tentively due out in December.
