Earth A.D. / Wolf’s Blood from The Misfits saw the band really show their fangs with a faster and more aggressive full-length recording than the previous full-length album, Walk Among Us. In 1983, Earth A.D. fired off (9) blistering tracks at a total running time of just under 15 min. This was a seminal moment in music, where punk is fueled by a thrashier style of playing, laying down the blueprint for the hardcore metal scene that would follow. Previous classic sing-along tracks like “Skulls” were transposed against songs like “Green Hell” that delivered vicious chugging from deep below the surface of Earth A.D. The sheer audio assault of this album is timeless, along with the underground comic illustration by the late Mad Marc Rude that graces the cover. Sadly, this was the last full length record release from what is considered to be the classic Misfits lineup of Jerry Only, Glenn Danzig and Doyle von Frankenstein.

Thought we would share this great shot of The Misfits founder Jerry Only as we makes his way to the stage in full battle regalia. This shot is great as it details the back of his stage wear which you don’t always geta good look at during a live Misfits show.
If you are payinf attantion, you will see that the classic Misfits lineup of Jerry Only, Glenn Danzig and Doyle Von Frakenstein are booked for some major music festivals. The first is as soon as this October as they headline Aftershock 2021 in Sacemention California’s Discovery Park. This is a 3 day festival with Metallica closing the bill, bookeding The Misfits who preform on Saturday October 9th. As with anything that the Misfits do these days, this festival is 100% Sell Out.
We are gearing up for a wave of cool stuff with The Misfits at present. Stay tuned here and on our offical social media sites for updates. KnuckleBonz Facebook and KnuckleBonz Instagram

From the advent of the music industry, the bands we listen to and revere defined us in our formative years. We paired off into groups that gravitated to musical genres. Pop music always had the largest following with fans that may or may not be passionate. As you descend into other genres, fandom becomes more intense and vital to who you were, and are. Punk and Metal would most often square off and choose sides with an occasional cross over. However, there are a few bands that transcend musical genres, and even pop culture. Such is the case with The Misfits. From humble beginnings in Lodi NJ, Jerry Only and all the various lineups have had something for all. From original singer Glen Danzig, thru the more metal releases with Michale Graves, the following of the band has been among the most loyal in music. The formation of The Misfits established the Horror/Core/Punks, but heavy metal too really dug things right off. Cliff Burton of Metallica flew the Misfits flag on-stage with the Fiend skull tee-shirt on stage at Day at The Green, Oakland 1985. His arm was also tatted with The Fiend. With the flick of the wrist the band can re-unite today and sell out arenas anywhere in the world. They are a rarity…something all camps enjoy and agree on as cool and important.
Yesterday marked the anniversary of the 1st Full length Misfits album release, “Walk Among Us.” Album “American Psycho” and the “Dig Up Here Bones” track is still a fav here at KnuckleBonz. Relive or discover some Misfits today…
