The Misfits have announced that Dez Cadena (formerly of Black Flag and now The Misfits) is no longer in the Misfits and that Jerry Only’s son, Jerry Jr, has joined the band. The Jerry Only Band, I mean the Misfits, will play Static Age from start to finish on their upcoming tour this Summer and Fall.
The Misfits recently held four shows on the West Coast in preview of a new lineup and the band’s fall 2015 tour plans. As some fiends may have heard, guitarist Dez Cadena (formerly of Black Flag), is no longer in the band. Jerry Only’s son (Jerry jr.) has stepped into the position on guitar joining his father’s side, and Eric “Chupacabra” Acre remains on drums. Dez began with the ‘fits as a special guest on the 25th Anniversary tour in 2001, and shortly after became the permanent guitarist through to present. We all wish Dez the best with his future endeavors, and the Misfits begin a new chapter.
The first official studio material from the new lineup will surface this fall in the form of the single “Zombie Girl” b/w “Vampire Girl”—two fiendish new songs written by Misfits founding member Jerry Only.
This fall SEE the Misfits revisit the Static Age—LIVE! Fronted by Jerry Only (Bass/Vocals), the Misfits 2015 lineup will perform the classic 1977 debut album “Static Age” in its entirety—live in concert—nationwide! Each and every song from the historic release will be performed live, in album sequence, accompanied by video monitor backdrops orchestrated by Jerry Only himself. Revisit the Static Age live in concert, PLUS hear a full set of fiendish favorites from the band’s cryptic catalog—past, present—and future!
PLEASE STAND BY—STATIC AGE REVISITED: NIGHT TWO
As a special incentive, offering a second consecutive night’s residency of the band’s performance at select participating venues on the fall 2015 tour, classic era albums “Walk Among Us” & “Earth A.D.” will be performed back to back in their entirety—live in concert. Each and every song from both historic releases performed live within one set, in album sequence—but only at the second consecutive night’s performance at participating cities this fall.
Tune in for the Static Age on night one, then Please Stand By for “Walk Among Us” and “Earth A.D.” on night two…
In related news, Jerry Only has overseen the creation and formation of a new all-girl rock band of “She Demons”. The five piece made their live debut opening for the Misfits recent West Coast dates and will appear as the opener on all dates of the Misfits Fall 2015 North American Tour. The “She Demons” are in the process of recording their studio debut, which features new original songs written specifically for the project by Jerry Only. Their debut album is slated to be available at the Fall tour.
