The original Misfits lineup add Dec 28th show in Las Vegas


Miss last year’s Riot Fest reunion of The Misfits? Miss out on a ticket to their sold-out LA Forum show? Get ready.

After selling out the LA Forum in under 60 seconds, The Misfits have added a second show in Las Vegas, at the MGM Grand. As if seeing one of the most legendary and influential punk rock/hardcore bands of all time wasn’t rad enough, Alkaline Trio and FEAR are on the bill too.

Tickets go on sale here at 10am on Friday, September 29th. Safe to say, they won’t last long. Grab them while you can, and enjoy. I caught them at Chicago last year, and I was blown away.

Misfits Guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein set to star in “Don’t Look in the Basement” remake “Death Ward 13”

Misfits Guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein is set to star in Death Ward 13, a remake of the cult-classic film Don’t Look in the Basement. Doyle is best known as the guitar player for the American horror punk band the Misfits and will play the most terrifying character in the film which is now in pre-production.

”I’m looking forward to starting my movie career with a starring role in Death Ward 13″ says Doyle. “It’s time to release the beast on the big screen. Let the killing begin!”

SYNOPSIS: It’s 1973 and the Stephens Sanitarium for the Criminally Insane prepares to shut down permanently. Days before closing, four beautiful nursing students arrive to care for the last handful of “harmless” mental patients in a suspiciously understaffed ward. Confronted by their violent charges, the nurses soon realize that they are trapped inside the asylum with a deadly crew of vicious lunatics. Each patient has their own perverse identity, their own personal demons, and their own violent agenda. Pushed to the brink of insanity, the young nurses find themselves in a gruesome fight for survival inside Ward 13.

Dez Cadena has cancer

We start this week off with one of the saddest news we’ve ever reported. Legendary guitarist/vocalist Dez Cadena, formerly of Black Flag, The Misfits, Redd Kross, DC3 and other acts, has been diagnosed with cancer. A GoFundMe page has been launched to raise money to offset Cadena’s medical bills. The page reads:

“Dez has just finished debilitating radiation treatments, and is confident he will return to active performance again within a year. So Dez has had to take a long break from touring and recording and he had no other income to pay for the quite expensive treatments and doctor’s bills. We ask you today to donate funds to help Dez’s cause, as this friendly man has given so much to the music community, and he is literally a living punk rock legend, having played on some of the classic records of the genre, and remains one of the most beloved members of the scene.”

You can go here to contribute. We here at Dying Scene wish Dez a speedy recovery.



Video: The Misfits live in Santa Ana, CA

Our friends at Felony Records were recently at the Misfits‘ show in Santa Ana, CA and have a new video to share! The video covers the first part of the set, including “20 Eyes” and “All Hell Breaks Loose,” among others.

Check it out below.

Jerry Only stated in an interview last year that a new Misfits album is in the works. No more details have been given, but the album will serve as a follow-up to 2011′s The Devil’s Rain.



The Misfits announce “Static Age” full-album tour, plans to release new single

Though they may have just parted ways with longtime guitarist Dez Cadena whose shoes will now be filled by Jerry Only’s son, the Misfits are showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon.

The band which should probably at this point be called “Jerry Only and Friend/Son” has just announced tours of the UK, US, and Russia on which they will be playing 1977 Static Age in its entirety.

And in addition to touring non-stop through the summer and fall, the band will also be releasing a new single titled “Zombie Girl” later this year. Oh, and the b-side of that 7″ is a track called “Vampire Girl.” Creativity at its finest, folks.

Check out the tour dates below if you’re into that kinda thing, and stay tuned for more info on the single if you’re into that kinda thing.



Dez Cadena leaves the Misfits

The Misfits guitarist Dez Cadena announced on his Facebook page that he has left the band, and will be replaced by Jerry Only’s son, whose name is unknown. He explains:

“I’m not with the Misfits anymore, this is what I do for a living now, sorry if you were expecting to see me in Cali. All the best to the band and fiends. Carry on.”

Last spring, the former vocalist and rhythm guitarist of Black Flag had a malignant tumor removed from his larynx, leaving him (at least briefly) unable to sing, though he could still speak. It’s not clear if this has anything to do with his departure from The Misfits.

Jerry Only stated in an interview last year that a new Misfits album is in the works. No more details have been given, but the album will serve as a follow-up to 2011’s The Devil’s Rain.
