Set List: The Misfits @ Riotfest, Denver, CO; Band Talks New Album

by VVN Music

The reunited Misfits took to the stage at Riotfest in Denver, CO on Sunday night with a 25-song set...and there may be more to come.

Original members Glenn Danzig and Jerry Only and long time member Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein were joined by Dave Lombardo on drums and Acey Slade on second guitar for the show which is one of two that have been scheduled but the harmony they are finding may have much longer lasting implications.

Only told Rolling Stone that there was a real possibility that there could be new music coming:
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.
Their set spanned the band's career, even though Danzig was only a member for the first two EPs and two albums. Overall, they played nineteen songs from the Danzig era, including eight of the thirteen cuts from their debut album, Walk Among Us, vs. six from post-Danzig albums.

None of the songs were "Post-Danzig Era" songs. Static Age was recorded in 1978, but released in 1997. Danzig was present on all original recordings of the songs in this setlist. Glenn would never sing a Post-Danzig "Misfits" song.

***"Their set spanned the band's career, even though Danzig was only a member for the first two EPs and two albums."***

This is absolutely false. Glenn appeared on every single release that was recorded before 1995, including releases of previously recorded material after Jerry's Misfits.


The following is far more correct:

Their set spanned the band's entire career with creator, songwriter, and frontman Glenn Danzig prior to Jerry Only reforming the defunct group, without Glenn Danzig, in 1995.


Otherwise, great write-up!
