The legendary MISFITS will return this Halloween with two brand-new songs, marking the first new original material from the horror rock icons in a decade! The release also marks their first new studio recordings since 2003's "Misfits Project 1950" covers album.The limited-edition 12-inch LP maxi-single showcases a new cover painting rendered by Arthur Suydam (of Marvel Zombies fame) who has rendered the MISFITS world-famous "fiend skull" icon in homage to the zombie films of George A. Romero. The artwork is appropriately suited as both new songs ("Land of the Dead" and "Twilight of the Dead", written by MISFITS founding member Jerry Only), were inspired by the acclaimed director's living dead series. The first pressing on clear red vinyl is a limited edition of 1,000 pieces, guaranteed to feed the collectible frenzy with MISFITS fiends while supplies last!
Look for the MISFITS (Jerry Only on bass/vocals, Dez Cadena on guitar and Robo on drums) on tour throughout North America between now and late December, where you can expect to hear both new songs performed live in concert. Starting October 30, "fiends" will have the chance to pick up a special clear orange vinyl tour edition of the 12-inch (also limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide), while supplies last. The clear orange vinyl pressing will be on sale exclusively at live MISFITS shows and will not be available in stores.
Both songs ("Land of the Dead" and "Twilight of the Dead") will be available individually for digital download ($0.99 per track) on iTunes and other digital music providers starting October 27.
