The reassembled originals Misfits — singer Glenn Danzig with bassist Jerry Only and guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein — aren’t done performing reunion concerts just yet. The horror-punk pioneers have just been revealed as headliners for Riot Fest 2022, where they’ll perform their classic 1982 debut, Walk Among Us, in its entirety.

That’s right — they’ll be playing Riot Fest 2022, not this fall’s edition of the fest, of which the stacked 2021 lineup emerged last week. Still, somewhat surprisingly, the Misfits Riot Fest announcement arrived hot on the heels of that info.

“Just Announced: The Original Misfits will ‘Walk Among Us’ at Riot Fest 2022 with a 40th anniversary album play of their classic ‘Walk Among Us,'” Riot Fest shared on Monday (May 17). “They will join My Chemical Romance September 16-18, 2022 in Chicago.”

Riot Fest 2021 will be the event’s first year back since 2019’s installment; 2020’s festival was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. My Chemical Romance, initially announced for 2020, ultimately elected not to tour this year. They’ll join the Misfits on the Riot Fest bill next year.

A reunion long in the making, Misfits’ original members first got back together in 2016 at a pair of Riot Fest performances in Chicago and Denver. The trio of Danzig, Only and Doyle was joined onstage by drummer Dave Lombardo and guitarist Acey Slade, who’ve continued to back the Misfits for subsequent shows, including an October 2019 stint at New York’s Madison Square Garden. The band also will perform this fall at Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, Calif.
