The other day a rather “cryptic” Instsgram photo was making the rounds and causing all sorts of ruckus. It was the “Fiend” who many realize is the infamous mascot of the legendary Misfits. The visual was in the shape of NJ so all were screaming about the bands long anticipated return to the East Coast but where would they play? Well, the answers are now down below. Check it out.
The Press Release:
The Original Misfits will finally make their triumphant return to where it all began over 30 years ago in New Jersey. Today, The Original Misfits have announced that the band will reunite for their only area performance at Prudential Center in Newark, N.J. on May 19. Now fans on the east coast will have their first opportunity to experience reunited original singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only. This unprecedented reunion and lineup of legendary horror-punk trailblazers/modern-metal pioneers was one of the hottest tickets of 2017, and will now undoubtedly be again in 2018.

From the time of their first gig in 1977, the MISFITS and their iconic imagery went on to become one of the most crucially influential, genre-defying bands to ever emerge from North America. The MISFITS significance extends well beyond the narrowed path of punk rock, metal & hardcore. Although not cognizant of how significant they would become, what the Original MISFITS achieved in their initial seven-year window deconstructed and redefined rock music.
The MISFITS with Danzig’s anthemic songs and unmistakable voice, Only’s ferocious bass sound, and the Original MISFITS melody-induced choruses and authentically bruising musicianship, cemented their importance with all ensuing generations. And now legions of diehard fans from around the world will have the opportunity to hear the Original Band that forges a level of intensity unprecedented in the new millennium. Don’t miss this important chapter in the legendary band’s legacy of brutality. Support will be Suicidal Tendencies & Murphy’s Law

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Do I really need to add anything here? I don’t think so because the Original Misfits have been delivering some seriously exciting shows during these last few reunion go-rounds and the footage that I’ve managed to catch has had me hoping for this sort of announcement for our side of the fence. Let’s face it, the band is from the East Coast so we were going to get them eventually. I’ll say that the place to be on May 19th will be The Rock so find your best blacks and most fiendish apparel and we’ll all meet up there. It’s going to be a night that the East Coast will never forget and let’s hope some sort of live video recording is planned since this stuff needs to be captured for posterity. I would advise that fans grab there tickets as soon as possible to do so because this will sell out immediately. One has to hope that a second or perhaps even a third night is possible. Wouldn’t that be a kick in the head to the people that never had faith in this kind of music. Let’s blow the roof off of the place together with our screams and shouts. I’m outta here….
