Misfits Release First New Album in Nearly a Decade Today

Today punk rock legends the Misfits release The Devil’s Rain, the band’s first album in nearly a decade!  It was produced by Ed Stasium, who’s credits include the Ramones’ Road to Ruin and Too Tough to Die, as well as the Misfits’ 1999 release Famous Monsters.  Celebrating the occasion, they’ve release a free mp3 for one of the album’s tracks, “Twilight of the Dead.” 

The Devil’s Rain packaging is designed to emulate a CD sized gatefold LP, featuring some incredible new Misfits portraits shot by the iconic Mick Rock.  It also showcases a jaw-dropping, two-panel front/back cover painting featuring the rebirth of the band’s iconic “Fiend” mascot in an epic setting rendered by Arthur Suydam (known for his immensely popular work on the Marvel Zombies series, among others). 
 
The band’s current lineup – consisting of founding member Jerry Only on vocals/bass, Black Flag alum Dez Cadena, and drummer Eric “Chupacabra” Arce – just kicked off an extensive US tour.  For both fans of their classics and newcomers discovering the band for the very first time, The Devil’s Rain embodies the ferocity and melody that have made the Misfits omnipresent and immortal.  One thing is certain, The Misfits are here to stay and every day is Halloween.
