More about the band

The Original Misfits are an American punk rock band, known for the horror punk subgenre. They are known to mix punk with horror film themes and imagery. The band consists of vocalist, songwriter, and keyboardist Glenn Danzig, drummer Manny Martínez and Jerry Only on bass guitar.

The Misfits disbanded in 1983, and Glenn Danzig went on to form Samhain and after that, Danzig. After a series of legal battles, Only and Doyle regained the rights to record and perform as the Misfits. In 1995, they formed a new version of the band with singer Michale Graves and drummer Dr. Chud.

It was not until 2016 that singer Glenn Danzig and bassist Jerry Only settled their feud to reunite with the band’s classic members. The Original Misfits have only played a total of 14 shows in six years.

Danzig recently said he is likely to stop touring and would play at one-off gigs. In a statement he said,

“[My current outing is] not really much of a tour,” Danzig told Revolver in May. “It’s 10 shows. I don’t think I’m going to tour anymore. I’m just going to fly out to a show here or there. I’ll maybe be down to do some one-offs. But I just don’t see myself getting on a tour bus anymore…I think I’m done.”

Meanwhile, punk rockers The Distillers, who are opening for The Misfits, reunited a few years back after remaining separated for nearly 12 years. The Distillers are an American punk rock band, who were formed in Los Angeles in 1998 by vocalist and guitarist Brody Dalle. The Distillers disbanded in 2006, after which Dalle and Distiller guitarist Tony Bevilacqua went on to form Spinnerette.
