Metal Rules! TV recently caught up with THE MISFITS’ Eric “Chupacabra” Arce and Jerry Only at Monster Mania Con in Cherry Hill, NJ. CHeck out the short video interview below:
With select tracks from The Misfits’ encore set at their hometown show in New Jersey (recorded live on Devil’s Night no less), Dea.d. Alive! – released on February 5th – is an audio Molotov cocktail guaranteed to have bonfires burning bright with pumpkin faces, day or night, all year round. Speakers will virtually melt as a torrential downpour of ‘Devil’s Rain’ engulfs the senses, catapulting you front row center into a jam-packed house of horrors.
The diverse set of modern day Misfits classics included range from current hits like ‘Land Of The Dead’ and ‘Curse Of The Mummy’s Hand’, on through all-new live versions of earlier-era material like ‘Scream!’, ‘Dig Up Her Bones’, ‘Helena’ and more – recorded live, with a level of precision and intensity garnered in over three decades of horror business. In addition to 13 fiendish favs from the band’s cryptic catalog, the live set also includes a cover version of the anthem ‘Science Fiction/Double Feature’ (from the cult-classic Rocky Horror Picture Show) performed by the Misfits for the first time ever on any release!
Dea.d. Alive! features cover art by Jason Edmiston – cover artist for Famous Monsters, Rue Morgue, contributor to Topps Mars Attacks 50th Anniversary trading card set, and more.
