7-Inch Vinyl EP Retail Edition (Black Vinyl w/ Silver Metallic Jacket): Released October 27, 2014
The legendary Misfits first holiday release (outside of Halloween of course), creeps down your chimney in the form of the “Horror Xmas” EP! Track one unwraps a fiendish cover of the Dr. Seuss classic, “You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch”. True to the original, yet fueled by the band’s signature sound, Jerry Only’s ominously melodic baritone lead vocals, and guest backing vox by John Cafiero (Osaka Popstar), the ‘fits slap devilocks on every Who down in Whoville…
An infectious all-new original Misfits Xmas themed song (written by founding member Jerry Only) entitled “Island of Misfit Toys” debuts, and the band’s long anticipated rendition of “Blue Christmas” surfaces in a full studio version that would even make “the King” himself snarl with holiday cheer. The Misfits serve up a nightmare before Xmas destined to become an annual tradition.
