The Misfits

New Jersey horror punk legends the Misfits will return with their first album of new material in over a decade this fall. The band have announced that The Devil's Rain, a new disc produced by veteran punk producer Ed Stasium, will hit stores on October 4th on their own Misfits Records.

The Misfits haven't been very active in the studio in recent years, but they have spent a lot of time on the road, particular in 2009 when they went out on a 30th anniversary reunion tour. The band will go out on the road again to promote The Devil's Rain beginning in September.

Song Stories

“Wake Up Everybody”

John Legend and the Roots | 2010

A Number One record by Harold Melvin and the Bluenotes in 1976 (a McFadden- and Whitehead-penned classic sung by Teddy Pendergrass) inspired the title and lead single from Wake Up!, John Legend's tribute album to message music. The more familiar strains of "Wake Up Everybody" also fit his agenda. "It basically sums up, in a very concise way, all the things we were thinking about when we were putting this record together in that it's about justice, doing the right thing and coming together to make the world a better place," he said. Vocalists Common and Melanie Fiona assist Legend on this mission to connect.
