THE MISFITS Announce Australian and New Zealand Tour 2015

Tombowler and Metropolis Touring Proudly Present
misfits1

Performing their classic albums STATIC AGE and EARTH AD plus other classics.

From hell they came… in April 1977 at the dawn of the punk movement, THE MISFITS were born. They wound up making history and creating a legacy that has truly withstood the test of time. 30 years on THE MISFITS are generating more interest than ever before.

To celebrate this significant tombstone, THE MISFITS are going to fill your Christmas stockings with ghoulish delight because December’s exclusive Australia/ New Zealand tour will feature STATIC AGE and EARTH AD in full.

Bands across the ages have paid tribute to THE MISFITS including Guns ʻn Roses, My Chemical Romance, Prong, NOFX, Cradle Of Filth, Sick of It All and Metallica who covered no less than three MISFITS songs on “Garage Days Revisited”. The iconic “Fiend Skull”, which was once crudely painted on their equipment, leather jackets and everything they could get their hands on, has since become a staple in pop culture, and an instantly recognizable symbol worldwide.

STATIC AGE features the band’s earliest work including all time classics such as ‘Attitude’, ‘We Are 138’ and ‘Last Caress’. Their second album EARTH AD features “Die Die My Darling”, “Green Hell” and “Mommy, Can I Go Out And Kill Tonight”. But if that’s not enough raw meat to gorge yourself upon, you can bet you’ll be well satisfied with THE MISFITS Christmas cheer of “Astro Zombies”, “Hybrid Moments”, “Where Eagles Dare” and “Skulls”.

“When fans come to a Misfits show, they get a band who gets up there and gives them all they’ve got. 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.” Jerry Only – THE MISFITS

THE MISFITS have been preserved on determination bound by unequaled loyalty to their fans and the sheer will to survive. The ferocity and melody that has made THE MISFITS omnipresent and immortal sees the band continue to sell out shows and draw thousands of fans night after night around the globe.

So come on out Fiends – All hell will break loose when the kings of horror-rock drag humanity by the throat into a world of darkness filled with ghouls, goblins and creatures of the night. Move over Saint Nick, because when THE MISFITS are in town every day is Halloween!

Earthless (USA) and Elder (USA) Australian Tour October 2015

earthless
Earthless want you to know how it feels to touch the sky. With smoldering guitar riffs that stretch from here to infinity, the San Diego trio are at once cosmic and timeless, rooted in a profound respect for the Zeppelin/Sabbathian tradition yet with eyes firmly cast forward. Never mind the retro rock revivalists or the ’70s throwbacks – Earthless aren’t nostalgists; they’re sonic luminaries dragging psychadelia by the wah pedal into the 21st century and beyond.
