Danzig, the current musical vehicle of Misfits founder Glenn Danzig, did something curious this past summer: they released an album, their first in six years. And even more surprising: it was well-received, picking up positive reviews from Alternative Press and the Onion AV Club , along with being his highest-charting record since 1994. So theres more allure to Danzigs current Blackest of the Black tour than hearing Mother for the 900th time or hoping for a repeat of his infamous caught-on-tape backstage knockout at the hands of a member of Phoenix hardcore band North Side Kings. Also on the bill: Swedish metal act Marduk, NorCal thrash vets Possessed and lesser-known-but-surely-poppy-and-sunny bands Withered and Toxic Holocaust.
