Original Release Date: October 27, 2009
Features the 2009 Single Versions (the debut recordings) of the tracks “Land of the Dead” and “Twilight of the Dead” performed by Jerry Only (Bass/Vocals), Dez Cadena (Guitar) and Robo (Drums). The release marks the final recordings to feature classic era Misfits drummer Robo in the lineup, prior to his retirement in 2010.
This Ltd. Ed. 12-inch LP maxi single showcases an incredible cover painting by Arthur Suydam (Marvel Zombies) ferociously rendering the Misfits iconic “Fiend Skull” in homage to the zombie films of George A. Romero, with concept and art direction by John Cafiero. The artwork is appropriately suited as both songs (“Land of the Dead” and “Twilight of the Dead” written by Misfits founding member Jerry Only), were inspired by the acclaimed director’s living dead series.
