“Founded in 1977 in Lodi, New Jersey by singer and songwriter Glenn Danzig; The Misfits® are an American rock band often recognized as the founders of the horror punk subgenre, blending punk rock and other musical influences with horror film themes and imagery. They released the “Horror Business” single in June 1979, the cover of which featured a skeletal figure inspired by a poster for the 1946 film serial The Crimson Ghost. The skeletal figure became a mascot for the band.
The Misfits® disbanded in 1983 and Danzig went on to form Samhain and then the eponymously-named Danzig. Several albums of reissued and previously unreleased material were issued after the group’s dissolution, and their music became influential to punk rock, heavy metal, and alternative rock music of the late 1990s and early 2000s.”
The collection will launch at Supreme stores around the globe on April 18, 2013.
