Title: “Friday The 13th” (Single)
Label: Misfits Records
Release Date: 5/13/2016
Genre: Horror Punk
Hailing from the upcoming EP that bears the same name comes the title track single of “Friday The 13th” by those purveyors of prime Horror Punk in the Misfits. It’s the perfect downloadable present for your mobile device music library and of course has been timed to capture the spirit of this haunted non-holiday date. The song is a catchy one and has been penned by Only who sings (of course) and plays the bass while Jerry Other and Eric Arce handle the guitar and drum duties. The groove is pretty straightforward in terms of a Misfits track and is very melodic when it gets to the chorus. I think that you’ll find yourself singing along rather quickly when that part comes up because I was. The end was very brooding and dramatic which sold it even more for me. Its hard to describe for you here though and its better to listen to. I loved the cover art which you might notice shows the famous Misfits Fiend sporting a slightly Jason-esque design which I thought was awesome.
The track is a nice gift to help you celebrate the recently announced news about the Original Misfits reuniting for a festival appearance in the coming months. I discussed that news HERE. Fans will have to wait until June for the full EP and make no bones about it (hahahaha), I’ll be getting you grim readers a review when I have my clutches on that one. Stay tuned and watch out for Jason.
