      Static Age- a record recorded in 1978 using free studio time acquired from a lawsuit involving Blank Records. During this free studio time, a true masterpiece was recorded. Unfortunately it wasn’t released entirely until the late 90s when Static Age was released as a standalone record. In in the meantime most tracks were released through

      main releases and compilations.

      Though not as raw sounding, the songs that came out of the Static Age sessions are some of their best. It was before they got harder and more towards hardcore. These tracks are noticeably lighter and catchier than their later output. Glenn Danzig’s voice is a lot cleaner and has a lot more vibrato than anything they put out after the Bullet single. It has much more of a doo-wop influenced sound, giving it a classic feel.

      The record includes one song that was released for the first time, the amazing “In The Doorway”. Why it wasn’t released for 19 years I have no idea. Just ...


      over a minute long, it features a slower tempo, the classic A/G riff, and one of Glenn Danzig’s best Misfits-era vocal performances.

      Longtime Misfits fans won’t find anything they haven’t heard here, but if you’re just getting into the Misfits, this is a must have. But whether you’re just starting to listen to them, or

      you’ve been listening to them for decades like I have, “Static Age” puts the amazing 1978 recordings into one solid record packed with some of the Misfits’ best material. It takes the Static Age releases from all the singles, EP’s, and compilations and puts them into one record that you won’t be able to stop listening to.
