Dea.d. Alive, the upcoming live album from horror punk legends The Misfits which will be released on CD and MP3 on February 5, 2013, is streaming online for free right now over at Rolling Stone. (You can hear one of the songs from the album here below.)
Dea.d. Alive contains 14 live tracks, most of which were taken from their Halloween shows in Times Square in New York City, with a select few songs coming from the band’s encore set in their home state of New Jersey. Along with 13 Misfits tunes from their recent era – meaning post-Glenn Danzig days – there’s also a cover of “Science Fiction – Double Feature” from The Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack, a most appropriate selection for an All Hallow’s Eve concert, and it’s the first time a recording of their rendition has been released.
The album cover was done by Jason Edmiston, cover artist for magazines like Famous Monsters and Rue Morgue, and contributor to the Topps Mars Attacks 50th Anniversary trading card set.
Head over to Rolling Stone to listen to the entire live album, and to read their interview with Misfits frontman Jerry Only.
The band will be making a few in-store appearances to promote the album, so check out the Misfits official site at misfits.com for those dates.
