We are less than 24 hours away from Halloween. While we get our costumes ready or perfect our spooky binge-watching lists, My Chemical Romance‘s Frank Iero, Rise Against‘s Tim McIlrath, MxPx‘s Mike Herrera and more celebrating the spooky weekend in style.
When it comes to the spooky season, a lot of music fans immediately think of the horror legends themselves – Misfits. Now, Ernie Ball and some talented musicians have come together to both honor the band and the upcoming holiday with a special cover.
Thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, musicians have gotten creative when it comes to putting out content this year. Due to this, Ernie Ball was able to throw the legendary cover together with all of the musicians safely in their homes.
Along with MCR’s Iero, McIlrath and Herrera, Against Me!‘s Atom Willard and Ryan “Fluff” Bruce joined in for an iconic cover of Misfits’ “Halloween.” The 2-minute cover features McIlrath on vocals, both Iero and Bruce on guitar, Herrera on bass and Willard on drums.
The spooky performance truly comes together with added effects of bats, jack-o’-lanterns, zombie hands and more. The “Halloween” cover offers a fresh take on the Misfits classic while showing off each of the musician’s unique talents. All of which makes for a truly entertaining performance that gets us all ready for the upcoming Halloween weekend.
This latest Misfits cover isn’t the first to be released on Oct. 30. Senses Fail and Saves The Day unveiled their surprise Through Being Ghoul Misfits covers split on Friday. The release includes reimaginations of some iconic Misfits tunes.
