Misfits drop off Motorhead tour, announce new shows

by Black Bubblegum

Jerry Only, signing autographs. (ilikefishbutfishhateme)

“…The Misfits have always held an incredibly high standard of performance and quality in everything we do. Our fans expect this and deserve it. I will not compromise their expectations for any amount of money, prestige or fame…..”

Lets play a guessing game. Is the quote:

  • A) Spoken by Glenn Danzig with respect to the reformation of The Misfits.
  • B) Spoken by Jerry Only with respect to The Misfits dropping off the previously mentioned Volcom Tour.
  • C) Part of a longer quote where Jerry Only also hawked Misfits-brand pomade (“when you absolutely positively must have that perfect devilock!”)

If you answered B, sadly, you are correct (although, C isn’t far off). The Misfits have dropped off a tour with Motorhead and Valient Thorr, but added a pair of NYC-area shows: Halloween (“hall-low-waaay-ay-ayne”) at BB Kings and November 1st at Starland Ballroom in NJ (ticket info currently unavailable). The Misfits 2008 are Jerry Only, Robo (also ex-Black Flag) and Dez Cadena (ex-Black Flag).

Danzig is gearing up for the Blackest Of The Black Tour with Dimmu Borgir and Skeletonwitch, including one date at Roseland on 10/15 (tix still avail). We’re not sure if there will be another Danzig+Doyle Misfits set on this tour (probably not).

Both Danzig and “Misfits” touring and playing NYC shows around Halloween is somewhat of a tradition. All dates below…
