KnuckleBonz To Release Misfits “Earth A.D.” Statue

KnuckleBonz will be releasing a new 10 inch, 3D vinyl statue inspired by the artwork for Misfits’ “Earth A.D.” Pre-orders can be found HERE. Jerry Only commented:

“Knucklebonz 3D Vinyl nailed our classic ‘Earth A.D.’ cover in such incredible, gory detail it might even surpass the original art! Limited run of 1983 to immortalize the year the Misfits set the bar faster, harder, and higher, changing the face of hardcore and metal forever. Death came ripping, and it hasn’t been the same ever since. Now you can hold that moment in time in your hands with this ferociously accurate rendering of the Misfits ‘Earth A.D.’ illustration by the late Mad Marc Rude.”

Glenn Danzig Doesn’t Rule Out More Misfits Shows

During a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Glenn Danzig was asked about the possibility of more Misfits shows. The frontman responded by saying “the door is open.”

Danzig said the following:

“I don’t know. I mean, right now, something like a Misfits show would have to be in a bigger place. And I don’t know that those places are open yet. So we’ll see. I mean, the door is open. If we do it, I would like to play some places we haven’t played yet, Texas or Florida or places like that. We haven’t done any shows in those states, and those states are fully open.”

He also talked about cancel culture after being asked about controversial songs like “Last Caress“:

“It’s just a crazy-ass song. We would do things just to piss people off.”

“[It was] like, ‘Fuck everybody. Fuck you, fuck you, fuck you, fuck the world.’ It was just like, ‘Fuck your system, fuck all this bullshit.’ It was something else.”

“I don’t think people will ever see anything like it again. There won’t be any new bands coming out like that. Now, they will immediately get canceled.”

He also added:

“People don’t understand, because everything’s so cancel-culture, woke bullshit nowadays, but you could never have the punk explosion nowadays, because of cancel culture and woke bullshit. You could never have it. It would never have happened. We’re lucky it happened when it did, because it’ll never happen again,. You won’t have any of those kinds of bands ever again. Everyone’s so uptight and P.C., it’s just like, “OK, whatever.”

On another note, Danzig also said that he isn’t sure if he will ever release new music:

“With people thinking they can download your record for free and all of that stuff, it gets to the point where you’re just, like, ‘Why am I going to do a new record? People are just going to steal it. It’s going to cost me money to make it. Am I going to make any money back?’ I love doing music, but if I spend a ton of money doing a record and it just gets downloaded for free and people steal it, what’s the point?

I mean, we’ll see. Maybe I’ll just go in and do a song or two and give it away for free or something, I don’t know. It doesn’t cost too much, but for the most part, I think all these people who just decided that, you know, ‘Fuck the bands, I’m going to get this for free,’ well, your bands are probably not going to put out new music.”

Former Misfits Singer Michale Graves Could Be A Witness In Upcoming Proud Boys Capitol Insurrection Trial

According to Reuters, ex-Misfits singer Michael Emanuel, aka Michale Graves, may serve as a defense witness in an upcoming trial for four leaders of the Proud Boys, the far-right, neo-fascist, white nationalist organization that was involved in the treasonous pro-Trump insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. Emanuel, who is a member of the extremist group, claims that another member of the Proud Boys had asked him to perform at a private concert during the same time as the riot on January 6. That show never happened, but lawyers representing one of the defendants, Ethan “Rufio” Nordean, argued in a court filing that if the group were planning to “topple the government,” they wouldn’t have scheduled a concert for the same day. For his part, Emanuel said that he doesn’t think the Proud Boys were capable of planning an insurrection. He also added that him and his manager “ghosted” the other members of the group and got out of Washington D.C. as chaos erupted.
