With the Misfits' first show back with Glenn Danzig (and new drummer Dave Lombardo, of Slayer fame) having gone off without a hitch this past weekend, the question now is what's next.
Well, quite literally, what's next is one more gig in Chicago for the second city's version of the popular fest. But after that? Well, if Jerry Only had his way, there would be a new album. Only spoke to Rolling Stone's Kory Grow literally moments after the band went off stage and offered how he'd like to move things forward:
I want it to continue. I know Doyle wants it to continue. I know Glenn wants it to continue. We just have to be big enough people to make it continue. And that's where we're at. Whatever it takes. We're going into our 40th anniversary so the timing couldn't be more perfect. Eventually, Doyle's got to write a new album; I've got to write a new album; Glenn's got to write a new album. Why don't we work together and make the greatest album ever? Now we've got different elements. We've got Doyle playing more of a metal kind of thing. We've got Dave who we're trying to figure out what the fuck he's doing. And Glenn's got his own thing. And Acey [Slade, second guitar] fills in good too. And I've got the band where it is today. So it's a matter of remolding and using all the different elements that I've got.
The follow-up question was if Only had spoken to Danzig about working any new material, to which he responded:
I think it's got to evolve naturally. The thing is we've tried to plan things and then we stand there and wait and as it comes we'll just do it. When we go back – I don't know about Glenn – but I canceled our touring and everything for this so I'm going to go home and write and lift.
Look, of course Jerry Only would love to record a new Misfits album, but would Danzig? I guess at this point anything is possible and if Danzig is truly having a good time performing with these guys, why not? But would it even be any good?
