When you think of a band that is defined as being outside the realms of what is punk, one of the first bands to spring to mind has to be the one and only Misfits. They have left their darkened imprint on many a soul worldwide with their iconic horror punk stylings, blending the intensity of punk rock with themes and imagery from horror films and literature for over 35 years and they are making their long awaited return to Australia in 2014!
There is little doubt that Misfits have had a major influence on many different bands over the years both in image and of course with their music. A testament to this is that they been covered by a myriad of artists such as Metallica, Guns ‘N Roses, My Chemical Romance, NOFX, Cradle Of Filth, Sick Of It All, AFI and The Alkaline Trio which has resulted in the Misfits being introduced to completely new different audiences with each of rocks new generations.
Misfits need to be seen live to be truly appreciated. Their setlist is chock full of classics such as Die, Die My Darling, Attitude, Last Caress, Where Eagles Dare, Skulls Mommy, Can I Go Out And Kill Tonight?, Astro Zombies, Hybrid Moments, We Are 138 and Horror Business to name but a few.
So Australian fiends, grab your spiked leather jackets, style your Devil’s lock and get ready to be ghouled into a lesson and history of punk rock with the one and only Misfits! The Misfits are here to stay and every day is Halloween!
