...just in time for Danzig's Legacy Tour with Samhain and Doyle, go figure.

Anyway, it's called Devil's Rain. It has a cover by Arthur Suydum, which is neat.

Whose doing vocals on it this time around? I like the stuff they did with Graves (most of it at least) but just can't get all the way through Project 1950. Because it's fucking bad.

Roderick
08-13-2011, 02:59 PM
Yeah, Misfits 95 were a solid MISFITS cover band, but Project 1950 was total shite. Unfortunately they still appear to be a three piece with Jerry struggling on lead throat.

Mark Tolch

Project 1950 was one of the shittiest things I've ever heard.

Ian Jane
08-14-2011, 12:31 PM
The only reason I kept it was because it came with a cool bonus DVD that had some Balzac footage (and if I remember correctly footage of the guys from Agnostic Front bowling).

Ian Jane
11-04-2011, 05:21 PM
OK, so I've heard this now. Once was enough to make up my mind. These guys should just fucking stop it.

This album is complete garbage. Thank you Spotify for saving me $10.00 that I'll now spend on something more useful, like paying someone to kick me in the nuts for an hour, which would be better than listening to this again.

I don't really understand when people try to speak positively of "The Misfits" without Glenn Danzig. I saw them once when they first toured and played with Anthrax. It was laughable, but they were better than expected (for all old songs). But keeping the name going as a three-piece? And with rotating members. Pish.

Roderick
11-04-2011, 08:45 PM
I done warned you, Ian...

Ian Jane
09-06-2012, 02:17 PM
So after the complete fucking garbage that was Devil's Rain, now Jerry is saying that a reunion with Danzig is possible.

http://blogs.browardpalmbeach.com/countygrind/2012/08/misfits_jerry_only_glenn_danzig_interview.php

"The question on everybody's mind is will Only and Danzig ever reunite? Only responds: "I could tell you things that would make your head spin. Nothing is out of the realm of possibility right now."

Only holds lots of respect for his former bandmate and seems to want to keep the option open for a reunion. "We are brothers," said Only of Danzig. "Whether we get together and do something again, that's yet to be seen, but if we do it, it's got to be a positive. That would be worth the sacrifice."

I still don't see it happening, but I'd love to be wrong.

Robert W
09-06-2012, 05:48 PM
And Jerry said Doyle would be back in his Misfits as well, and that didn't happen.

As for Glenn, he said the "reunion" shows with Doyle are the closet thing anyone is ever going to see a classic Misfits reunion.

Jack J
09-06-2012, 09:18 PM
"The Misfits Three" should make a reunion band with Metallica (with Lou Reed on vocals), that would be awesome.

:woot:

Someone needs to pay us a boatload of money for a Misfats' reunion. That'd be about a billion times better.

From Punknews.org (http://www.punknews.org/article/50164/misfits-to-release-dead-alive):

On February 5, 2013, the Misfits will be releasing a new live album called Dead Alive. The 14-song album only features music from the band's post-Glenn Danzig era, likely due to the fact that the band only controls the name but not the song rights for the older material. It is dominated by songs from 2011's The Devil's Rain but also includes songs from the Michale Graves-era albums including Famous Monsters and American Psycho. A cover of the Rocky Horror Picture Show's "Science Fiction/Double Feature" rounds out the track listing.

The Devil's Rain
Vivid Red
Land of the Dead
Curse of the Mummy's Hand
Cold in Hell
Dark Shadows
Death Ray
Shining
American Psycho
Dig Up Her Bones
Scream!

I don't need to hear live versions of stuff off of Devil's Rain. Not studio stuff off of Devil's Rain for that matter.

I hated Devil's Rain. It made Project 1950 look awesome.

According to Jerry the fake Misfits are putting out 3 more releases this year: a re-release of Project 1950 with extra songs, a new single for Halloween and a Christmas album. I think I will skip these.

Let me first say that I'm not a Jerry hater nor one of those DANZIG ERA ONLY!!!!!!! Misfits fans. I think Famous Monsters is great and love Project 1950 (What can I say, I've got a thing for 50's music). But there is really no excuse for this. Seriously, what the fuck?!

Ian Jane
12-04-2013, 06:57 PM
I'm not either. I really like American Psycho and Famous Monsters. Project 1950, no, that didn't do it for me. But everything since then has been pretty lame.

With that said, the live album DeadAlive, wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. Faint praise I guess.

Roderick
12-04-2013, 07:09 PM
The Graves era albums are pretty fun, but everything released since then has been poop.

The Misfits are now the KI77 of punk rock.

Marky hasn't played with Jerry for years. I'm not sure if there was a falling out, but recently I heard Marky interviewed on Nerdist podcast where he made the comment "It either has to be with Danzig or Michale Graves or there's no Misfits." It seemed that the host had no idea that Marky had played with them, so there was no follow up to his statement.

I listened to some of each track last night. Pitiful. Just nothing more than drowning the Misfits name in his piss-poor product. Ugh.

A draft of the contract surfaced a while back but nobody knew if the deal was dead or still in the works.

If they tour beyond these festival shows I am there.

Scott MacDonald

There is no way they won't at least squeeze some expensive festival dates out of this (and since Austin is festival city USA, I'm hoping they come here).

Word has been surrounding this for awhile now, it's a bit odd, but in someways a fit. I can't imagine them getting Robo to do it considering he can't do a show without a Green-Card/Passport problem.

About the added ex-Slade guitarist...
Either they liked the two guitars when Doyle toured with Danzig or Doyle isn't that good live.

One comment suggested people wouldn't know the Misfits without Metallica.
I hate it when people associate great songs with the wrong band.
Songs like So What, Lake Of Fire and my biggest pet peeve Knockin' On Heaven's Door (f*ck off, GnR)

Citicard pre-sale starts at 10am today. I'm hoping to get in on that.

And I was on the site at 10am sharp... no luck. Either Ticketmaster's site is fucking up or the Citi pre-sale tickets sold out in roughly 40 seconds.

Godless667
01-30-2018, 12:09 PM
I don't have a Citicard so I was going to try for either the Ticketmaster or Live Nation Presale @ 10am 1/31. If I can track down either presale code that is ;)

Ian Jane
01-30-2018, 12:26 PM
I think for the Live Nation pre-sale you need to use their app and that's it. So I installed it and will try my luck tomorrow.

Is there a code for the Ticketmaster pre-sale?

There's also a Brooklyn Vegan pre-sale code that they'll announce on their site on Thursday morning before it starts at 10m.

Buying concert tickets sure is a lot more complicated than it used to be.

It's crazy that ticket prices are so high and apparently there is enough demand for it. I mean, I'd go if they played close to me and it was cheap, but otherwise I'm not too excited about these shows. Danzig's voice has always been hit or miss live, Lombardo is overkill for the material, and is Doyle even plugged in? The whole thing is just weird. I'd be much more excited if they'd do a new album.

Newt Cox
01-31-2018, 04:18 AM
I have wanted to see Danzig era Misfits live since I first heard the band in 85. But no way am I paying over 100 bucks for a single ticket. Maybe a live album will get released or at least a concert dvd. Found a shitty bootleg of them playing Vegas recently. It sounded like shit.
