Despite rumors to the contrary, ex-MISFITS frontman Michale Graves has no intention of rejoining his former group.
"I don't know where the rumor started from," Michale told Forbidden Zone Radio last week. "But they hold no weight to them. I'm not going back to the MISFITS. There's no plans of doing anything with the MISFITS right now. I don't know where that started from, but, you know, one person starts talking, another person says something. You know how the grapevine goes."
The singer also commented on the break-up of his most recent project, GRAVES, which he had formed with ex-MISFITS drummer Dr. Chud, guitarist Tom Logan, and ex-FAST TIMES bassist Graham Westfield.
"To tell you the truth, I don't so much follow what people are saying pertaining to the situation of the break-up or me leaving or however you want to perceive it," Graves said. "So, I don't know if my comments would be adding anything. I'm not going to air any sort of dirty laundry and I'm not going to talk about things that are personal and personal relationships because I just don't feel that it's anyone else's business except the people that are involved. It was a situation where all four legs on the horse were broken. What I wanted to do and where I wanted to go with my music and my career was once again not going in that direction. I forged a relationship with Chud and we said that we were going to be partners and we were going to be equal. And having a relationship, playing in a band, and being business partners with somebody is uh… you have to forge that bond. You have to trust that that person is looking out for your best interest, as well as his, as well as everyone else around them. And Chud wanted to be the leader and Chud took that position as being a leader and he didn't lead. I don't know what else to say. People that I thought were my friends turned out not to be my friends. I don't know, man. I could go on forever. I want everyone to know that I'm continuing. I have tons of new music. I haven't missed a beat. And a lot of people, especially on the Internet, man, they get caught up in that whole real world…you know, they want the inside scoop about everything's that's happening…the music is coming. And there's more art coming. And people need to focus on that and not the 'he said, she said.' It's just ridiculous."
Graves' current plans call for the recording of a new album early next year for a tentative March/April release.
" I'm working on new music. I plan on getting back on the road in a couple of months. I'll be over in Europe in January. Japan is happening sometime in like, February.
"I've been talking to a couple of record labels right now. I don't know if I should say who. I'm not going to say, I'll get in trouble. There's a couple of record labels I'm talking to. I'm going to find the situation that that's best for me and the people I'll be surrounding myself with and I'll take it from there."
