It has been known for some time now that a new Misfits album has been in the works. First announced in 2006, many thing have been said about this album. Jerry has, on numerous occasions said it would be the heaviest and fastest album The Misfits had ever done, comparing it to Earth A.D and American Psycho.

In 2009, The release of the Land of the Dead single indicated that the new Misfits album really was in the works, despite what some naysayers had previously said. I have heard many things and read many articles about this new album (A race car driver doing backup vocals, Jerry's daughter singing, John Christ on lead guitar, a song about the wizard of oz), and a lot of it is plausible... except the wizard of oz stuff. A recent interview with Jerry reveals the name of the new album, and two of the songs on it. Click to see Jerry Only interview on ACtv
What I do know about the album is the name of seven songs that will be on the album.
The Devil's Rain
The Monkey's Paw
Science Fiction (Rocky Horror Cover)
The Death Ray
Were Do They Go
Also Jerry's daughter is singing on the album, doing backup vocals on the song "Where do they go". For the rumors, I know that the one about John Christ is unlikely from what I've read on Misfits Central, with some of the original speculation coming from this interview with him. I've also heard that Jerry asked Erie Von to be on the album, but he declined. The race car driver rumor that originated on Misfits Central I think has some truth to it because a lot of the things mentioned on that forum turn out to be true. The actual thread has been deleted though probably due to all of the endless speculation going on. UPDATE: A day after I made this post an interview Jerry Only did with Eric Blair appeared on Youtube.
It mentions new song titles and confirms certain rumors, and mentions that Goat (now going to be called chupacabra) is replacing Robo do to his traveling visa making The Misfits have to cancel to many shows.
