Fan-Filmed Footage Of Misfits’ Reunion Show In California Surfaces On YouTube

Misfits’ classic lineup of Glenn Danzig, Jerry Only, and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein reunited for two shows in 2017. The shows took place on December 28 in Las Vegas and December 30 at the Forum in Inglewood, California, and fan-filmed footage of the latter has now surfaced on YouTube.

Which is quite weird considering the strict “no cellphones & cellphones will be locked up” policy that was emailed to ticketholders for both of the shows. So either they didn’t enforce that, or people just managed to sneak cellphones in there. The band is also joined by ex-Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo and guitarist Acey Slade.

Misfits guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein has released an official music video for the track “Run For Your Life.”

The clip was directed by Brian Cox at Flarelight Films, and is the first single off Doyle’s upcoming “As We Die” LP (due out 6/2/2017 via Monsterman Records. Doyle comments:

“I did the guitars when I did the Abominator record. We did two albums at once, actually. We were going to do a double album but there was so much material we just cut the motherfucker in half.

“We were actually done with all the recording during February of 2016, and we were just having a real problem getting the mix right. We mixed for 14 fucking months… I’m out of my mind, man. It’s got to be perfect.

“It’s your product and you have to make it perfect, ’cause it’s forever. It’s got to be great. When my favorite artist makes a record and I don’t like it, I’m pissed, y’know? I don’t want anyone to feel that way about us.”
