As I brought to your attention before, many of you were very stoked, and some even tried to prove me wrong of the rumor of ex-Slayer and Suicidal Tendencies drummer, legendary Dave Lombardo will in fact be joining the legendary horror punk band The Misfits as they reunite and headline this year's Riot Fest set for September 2nd and then again on September 16th in Chicago, Illinois.

The rest of The Misfits lineup will consist of Glenn Danzig (who hasn't played with the band since 83), Jerry Only on bass and Doyle on guitar.

Dave Lomabardo stated to Rolling Stone Magazine:

The Misfits created the horror punk attitude and had a massive influence on modern rock, punk and metal. It was an easy decision for me to join them for these monumental shows. I was honored to be asked, and am very excited to be playing with the band!

Danzig and Slayer did a few shows together back in '88 before the first Danzig album had even been released. It was then that Glenn and Dave first met. Glenn has been quoted as saying:

Dave is one of the best drummers around, and I can't wait to see him pounding Misfits songs live for these special shows.

The Misfits, the originators of the horror punk scene, and Slayer (FUCKING SLAYER), the almighty in the heavy metal world, joining members on one stage,...one word. LEGENDARY!

Will this grow into a full blown old is now new again band? Will there be new music and studio time? Well, with retirement not in the too far distant future for any of them, and these seeming to be the days of reunions, it's any mans guess. Would I like to see it happen? Could be interesting, but what I would really like to see is someone who is is going to Riot Fest and SEND ME A DAMN T-SHIRT 'CAUSE I CAN'T FUCKING GO!!!

Keep it Evil.
