MISFITS DEA.D. ALIVE!

14 Fiendish ‘Fits Cuts Recorded Live!

The raw ferocity of the legendary Misfits captured DEA.D. ALIVE! in concert on All Hallows’ Eve, in the center of Times Square—New York City! Need we say more Fiends? The ‘Fits first proper live album since the 1980’s is entombed in the ultimate greatest hits live package for the next generation of horror kids…A.D.

With select tracks from the band’s encore set at their hometown show in NJ added for good measure, (recorded live on ‘Devil’s Night’ no less), DEA.D. ALIVE! is an audio Molotov cocktail guaranteed to have bonfires burning bright with pumpkin faces, day or night, all year round. Speakers will virtually melt as a torrential downpour of “Devil’s Rain” engulfs the senses, catapulting you front row center into a jam-packed house of horrors.

The diverse set of modern day Misfits classics included range from current hits like “Land of the Dead” and “Curse of the Mummy’s Hand”, on through all-new live versions of earlier-era material like “Scream!”, “Dig Up Her Bones”, “Helena” and more—recorded live, with a level of precision and intensity garnered in over three decades of horror business. In addition to 13 fiendish favs from the band’s cryptic catalog, the live set also includes a cover version of the anthem “Science Fiction/Double Feature” (from the cult-classic “Rocky Horror Picture Show”) performed by the Misfits for the first time ever on any release!

Features cover art by Jason Edmiston cover artist for “Famous Monsters”, “Rue Morgue”, contributor to Topps “Mars Attacks” 50th Anniversary trading card set, and more.
