Misfits are Discussing Releasing a Live Album
Glenn Danzig is busy promoting an Elvis tribute album, but given the financial success of the recent Misfits reunion, the legendary punk band is never far from mind.
In a new interview with Rolling Stone, Danzig said that while the reunited “Original Misfits” — Danzig and bassist Jerry Only — aren’t planning to play any more gigs right now, they have discussed the possibility of releasing a live album to commemorate one of the dozen or so shows they performed together over the past few years.
On the future of the Misfits in general:
Do you have future plans for the Misfits?
“Not right now. I know we have a show we have to do on May 4th, some festival we’re headlining. But that’s it for a while, especially since Danzig’s going out this year.”
“Some festival” (lol Danzig) was Domination Festival in Mexico City, which has since been canceled because of the you-know-what.
On the possibility of a live release:
Have you thought about trying to do a live Misfits release or recording something?
“Yeah, we’ll see. It’s something we’ve talked about.”
And finally, Glenn comments on the success of the reunion shows so far, including Madison Square Garden specifically, along with a dose of classism:
Are you happy with the way the Misfits shows have been going?
“Yeah. Shit, we sold out Madison Square Garden. As a matter of fact, we oversold it. Back in the day, all the bigwig promoters and record label people were like, “A punk band will never headline Madison Square Garden.” And of course, we’re the first punk band to headline there. And not only did we sell it out, we oversold it. So a big fuck you to all those assholes, who are probably selling hotdogs on Sixth Avenue.”
