Misfits recruit drummer Dave Lombardo for reunion shows

The Misfits have confirmed that former Slayer drummer Dave Lombardo will be part of the lineup for their upcoming reunion shows at Riot Fest on both September 2 and September 16. "The Misfits created the horror punk attitude and had a massive influence on modern rock, punk and metal," Lombardo tells Rolling Stone. "It was an easy decision for me to join them for these monumental shows. I was honored to be asked, and am very excited to be playing with the band." "I first met Dave back in 1988 when Danzig did four shows with Slayer in the U.S., before the first Danzig album was released," Danzig explains. "Dave is one of the best drummers around, and I can't wait for everyone to see him pounding Misfits songs live for these special shows."
