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.
