The Original MISFITS, one of America’s most crucially influential, genre-defying bands, will perform with original singer/songwriter Glenn Danzig and original bassist Jerry Only, at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on Saturday, December 14. The Original Misfits also feature long-time guitarist Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein and preeminent drummer Dave Lombardo. They will be joined by special guests Dropkick Murphys and Agnostic Front.
From the time of their first gig in 1977, the Original MISFITS and their iconic imagery went on to become one of the most crucially influential, genre-defying bands to ever emerge from North America. The Original MISFITS significance extends well beyond the narrowed path of punk rock, metal & hardcore. Although not cognizant of how significant they would become, what the Original MISFITS achieved in their initial seven-year window deconstructed and redefined rock music.
The Original MISFITS with Danzig’s anthemic songs and unmistakable voice, Only’s ferocious bass sound, and the Original MISFITS melody-induced choruses and authentically bruising musicianship, cemented their importance with all ensuing generations. And now legions of diehard fans from around the world will have the opportunity to hear the original band that forges a level of intensity unprecedented in the new millennium. Hardcore fans won’t want to miss this important chapter in the legendary band’s legacy of brutality.
