Horror punk outfit Misfits have announced plans for a UK tour in April.
In 1977, at the dawn of the punk movement the Misfits set out to make an impression, and created a legacy that has truly withstood the test of time. Immortalizing black and white B horror films in their music, the Misfits developed a ghoulish and totally unique persona that’s consistently evolved, while remaining true to its roots. Bands across the spectrum of rock have covered their material, including Metallica, Guns ‘n’ Roses, My Chemical Romance and countless others citing the ‘Fits as a key influence. Boasting a massive catalogue of music, a new line-up, (consistently helmed by founding member Jerry Only), and an influence felt around the world, the Misfits are generating more interest today than ever before.
The ‘Fits returned in November 2011 with the album 'The Devil's Rain', their first full-length release of all-new, original material in nearly a decade. Rooted in the horror and sci-fi themes their audience craves, 'The Devil’s Rain' showcases 16 fiendish tracks including 'Twilight of the Dead', 'Dark Shadows', 'Curse of the Mummy’s Hand' and the title-track 'The Devil’s Rain'.
