The Resurrection Of The Misfits

Don't mess with The Misfits.

Addicted To Noise staff writer Gil Kaufman reports: Realizing that
135,000 misfits can't be wrong (the number of fans who either bought
copies of the band's coffin-shaped greatest-hits package, or the single
CD Collection 2), the Misfits recently entombed themselves in a New York
studio to record their first album of all-new material in over ten

Produced by longtime Ramones collaborator Daniel Raye, the album,
tentatively-titled Misfits (April 8), will be the band's first for
Geffen Records and will feature two original members Jerry Only (bass)
and his brother Doyle (guitar), plus drummer Dr. Chud and front-man
Michael Graves, who replaces original singer Glenn Danzig.

Raye said the new songs, 23 of which have been recorded in a New York
studio over the past two months, are in the "same twisted vein as the
original Misfits stuff." About his maiden voyage with the band that
launched the career of the now, ahem, pumped-up industrial rocker
Danzig, Raye said, "It's the first time I've worked with them, but it's
been really amazing, because they're one of my favorite bands and they
sound better than ever." Raye expects at least 20 of the songs will end
up on the album since "they're all only about a minute and a half long."

Some song titles so far include "Speak of the Devil," "The Hunger,"
"From Hell They Came," "Dig Up Her Bones," "Don't Open Til Doomsday,"
"Hate the Living, Love the Dead" and "Resurrection." The current
line-up's maiden show took place at Coney Island High in New York on
Halloween of 1995.
