               Misfits Go Psycho On Newest Horror-Core Album

               Megadeth's opening act this summer say they are 
               just all-American boys.

                    Addicted To Noise's Laura Lee Reports:
               Don't let the Misfits' bizarre appearance
               fool you, these are men with purpose, and the
               first item on today's agenda-- world

               The New Jersey four piece, decked out in
               skulls and leather, have been pumping out
               their brand of psycho horror-core since
               modern-day shock rockers Marilyn Mason were
               in diapers. Punk fueled and hook heavy,
               tracks off their new album American Psycho
               (Geffen) include titles such as "Speak Of The
               Devil," "From Hell They Came" and "Don't Open
               'Til Doomsday."

               "We get up every morning and lift weights,
               you know, and that's fun and then we get down
               and build our own guitars," said Jerry Only,
               frontman/bassist for the Misfits and brother
               of Misfits guitarist, Doyle Wolfgang Von
               Frankenstein. "And we demanded with this
               release that we get some bubble gum trading
               cards put out to accompany the album."

               Over the past couple of years, the Misfits
               were honored by an offer from the metal band
               Anthrax to open for them and recently they
               allowed themselves to be cajoled into an
               opening spot on Megadeth's summer tour. In
               addition to the Megadeth stadium tour, the
               Misfits are headlining their own club tour of
               the U.S.

               "The Misfits are as American as apple pie,"
               Only said. "And the only people who don't
               like the music are the ones we have to beat
               up." What better reason to make sure you
               don't miss them when they burn up your town
               this summer.
