Read what Jerry Only said:
“The Misfits were so far ahead of their time when we began back in 1977, that it took the world forty years to catch up. That time has come, and that time is NOW… We intend to take you on a ride back in time, and into the future to experience 100% authentic punk rock at its essence, and the origin of thrash in its purist form. History will be made — again. Prepare to be devastated…”
After years of bad blood, Glenn reunited with Only and Wolfgang Von Frankenstein for last year’s concerts at both incarnations of Riot Fest in Denver and Chicago. Prior to those gigs, the trio last performed together on October 29, 1983.
Speaking to Rolling Stone about how the Riot Fest shows went, Danzig said:
“I’d done it with Doyle before, but it was … interesting. [Laughs] I couldn’t hear myself, so it was exactly like the old days. So it is what it is. But everyone seemed to have a great time. I think it exceeded expectations, which is always good, and the write-ups were just insane.”
Joining Glenn, Jerry and Doyle at all the reunion shows so far were drummer Dave Lombardo (SLAYER, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES) and second guitarist Acey Slade.
