MISFITS: THE DEVIL’S RAIN

The Misfits return with their long awaited, first full-length release of all-new, original material in nearly a decade! Rooted in the horror and sci-fi themes fiends crave, “The Devil’s Rain” showcases 16 fiendish, soon-to-be Misfits classics including “Twilight of the Dead”, “Dark Shadows”, “Curse of the Mummy’s Hand” and the title track itself, “The Devil’s Rain”. Produced by Ed Stasium, (who’s credits include the Ramones’ “Road to Ruin” and “Too Tough to Die”, as well as the Misfits’ 1999 release “Famous Monsters”), the album showcases a jaw-dropping, two-panel front/back cover painting featuring the rebirth of the band’s iconic “Fiend” mascot in an epic setting rendered by Arthur Suydam (known for his immensely popular work on the Marvel Zombies series, among others). The packaging, designed to emulate a CD sized gatefold LP, also features some incredible new Misfits portraits shot by the legendary Mick Rock. Rock’s imagery (which includes Bowie, Iggy, Queen, Debbie Harry, and the Ramones to name a few), has become part of the very fabric of rock ‘n’ roll. Having also served as an on-set photographer for cult-movie classic “The Rocky Horror Picture Show”, Rock lends a perfectly suited eye to view the band’s surrealistic and highly theatrical persona. “The Devil’s Rain” is not just a continuation of a historic legacy, it’s a total reboot ushering in a new era of terror. In a sense, it’s the debut album from the legendary Misfits of this decade. From fans of their classics, to newcomers discovering the band for the very first time, “The Devil’s Rain” sets the bar, and redefines the ferocity and melody that has made the Misfits omnipresent and immortal.

First press Ltd. Deluxe Edition CD digipak includes an exclusive 9.5” x 14” two-sided poster featuring the incredible cover art by Arthur Suydam (treated with Glow-In-The-Dark ink!), plus a fantastic new band portrait by legendary photographer Mick Rock on the reverse.

Pre-order now @ Misfits Records online and receive a free, instant MP3 Download of the single “Twilight of the Dead” to draw first blood from the upcoming album.
New Misfits “Devil’s Rain” tees also available.

Includes FREE 9.5″ x 14″ exclusive full-color poster with art by Joe King (Obey Giant, Crooks & Castles, Billabong). “How to Sail a Sinking Ship” features 20 tracks, with over an hour of new-music, showcasing the band’s ability to combine a diverse range of musical styles & influences into their own blistering blend of punk rock.

THE MISFITS: NEW “RAIN” OF TERROR
Jerry Only continues to keep the bonfires burning bright well into their third decade, guitarist Dez Cadena celebrates his 10th anniversary in the band, and drummer Eric “Chupacabra” Acre has officially joined the fiendish fold. Formerly known as “The Goat” Arce, has transformed into a “Chupacabra”. Having been a fixture in the ‘Fits touring lineup for over a decade, he was recently inducted a permanent member upon the retirement of original Misfits drummer Robo, who’d passed the torch in 2010.
