MISFITS have replaced MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE on the roster of this year’s Aftershock festival, which is taking place October 7-10 at Discovery Park in Sacramento, California.
Aftershock 2021 will be headlined by METALLICA (performing two unique sets, one on Friday and one on Sunday), with MISFITS headlining on Saturday, October 9. The diverse Aftershock 2021 lineup will also include: LIMP BIZKIT, RANCID, THE OFFSPRING, SOCIAL DISTORTION, RISE AGAINST, VOLBEAT, MACHINE GUN KELLY, MASTODON, GOJIRA, SEETHER, ASKING ALEXANDRIA, and many more.
MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE canceled their appearance at Aftershock after announcing that they were postponing their reunion tour to 2022.
The initial comeback performance by MISFITS members Danzig, Jerry Only and Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein took place at the 2016 Riot Fest. The estranged bandmates played together for the first time since 1983 and were backed by former SLAYER drummer Dave Lombardo and guitarist Acey Slade.
Since then, the original lineup of the MISFITS has reunited for scattered dates, with the most recent one taking place in December 2019 at Wells Fargo Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
