DANZIG Says MISFITS Played Final Reunion Show, New MISFITS Record Seems Unlikely

It seems like we won't be getting for Misfits for now.

It seems like we won't be getting for Misfits for now.

The New York Times conducted an interview with Glenn Danzig about the recent Misfits reunion, and why a reunion came about all of a sudden. The tone of the interview is slightly less optimistic about the future of the band than the interview Jerry Only and Doyle gave moments after leaving the stage. At the time, Only implied that everybody wants to keep moving forward with more shows and potentially more music. Turns out Danzig disagrees.

While the interview is interesting enough, though nothing you haven't heard up to this point, the article states that Danzig declared that the band's Riot Fest gig in Chicago was their last reunion shows. Danzig also touches on the idea of a new Misfits album:

“If there’s going to be another Misfits record, I’d probably have to write the stuff,” he said. “And I’ve got a full plate, so I don’t know.”

It might sound conceited on Danzig's end, but the dude literally wrote 100% of Misfits' material for the band while he was still around. So no Danzig means no new old school Misfits… though to be fair, the world hasn't had any Danzig-fronted Misfits since the mid 1980s anyway. So it's not exactly a sudden loss.

On the flip side, he doesn't outright say "no" to the idea of a new record. So maybe there's hope once his schedule clears up? Or perhaps once a festival with deep pockets comes along again?

Danzig is finishing up his album of Elvis covers at the moment.
