Misfits: “Descending Angel” b/w “Science Fiction/Double Feature”


The Misfits debut two all-new studio recordings for the first time anywhere on this special limited edition 12-inch maxi-single.

90’s era Misfits ‘fiend’ fav “Descending Angel” has been re-recorded with a brand new 2013 treatment by the “Devil’s Rain” lineup (Jerry, Dez and Chupacabra), specifically for this release! By popular demand, the flip side features a studio version of the ‘fit’s cover of ‘Rocky Horror’ anthem “Science Fiction/Double Feature”, (in follow up to the live version that previously appeared on the band’s recent full-length “DEA.D. ALIVE!” – also available).

With wicked cover art by Jeff Zornow (Fright Rags, IDW’s Godzilla comics & more), and an iconic back cover photo of Misfits founding member Jerry Only shot through the legendary lens of Mick Rock, this is a package no Misfits record collection will be complete without.


The clear vinyl with black & white splatter edition is exclusive to the Misfits Records online store and not available anywhere else. Once this edition sells out, it’s gone for good and will not be repressed. Pre-order the highly limited online exclusive variant vinyl colorway and have your copy in hand weeks before the standard black vinyl edition arrives in stores! All pre-orders will receive instant MP3 download of both tracks, and ship beginning October 29th. Look for the solid black vinyl edition in stores and online everywhere on November 12th.
