The legendary Misfits will join the equally legendary Motorhead
for the “Volcom 2008” all ages tour which also features Airbourne,
Valient Thorr, and Year Long Disaster. This is the first time that the Misfits
and Motorhead will perform together in the United States. “We are excited to
be hitting the road with Motorhead and cracking skulls together! American
audiences have never witnessed destruction on this magnitude,” said Misfits
founder and frontman, Jerry Only, in a statement.
Fronted by Only (Bass/Vocals) with former Black Flag alum Dez Cadena on guitar
and original Misfits drummer Robo still behind the kit, the Misfits continue to
sell out shows and draw thousands of fans night after night around the globe.
“When fans come to a Misfits show, they get a band who gets up there and gives
them all they’ve got,” says Only. “We give them the real thing – that’s how
we’ve always done it. At a show, everyone’s just part of the band, there’s no
them and us – we’re all us.”
Motörhead’s still crazed after all these years, too. A band that never
sacrifices anything and has always remained true to what they are, Lemmy
Kilmister, Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell recently served up Motörizer, Motörhead’s 24th album, on SPV Records on August 26 and
