Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein will be bringing his monster riffs to Arizona Pete's in Greensboro on October 25th. GWAR, Ghoul, and US Bastards will be joining Doyle on the bill. We caught up with Doyle to speak with him about Doyle II, touring, and the Misfits.

You guys released your second album, Doyle II, earlier this year. A lot of the album was written about two years ago. Why did it take so long to release it?
It took us a year to mix it. I had to mix it over the phone while I was on the road which was a fucking joke and we had some technical difficulties.

Randy Blythe appeared on the song "Virgin Sacrifice." How did you that come together?
I called him up and said, "You want to sing a song?" and he said, "Yeah." I sent him three songs. My singer, Alex, he wanted him to do "Virgin Sacrifice" and I was like, "I hear him on 'God Of Flies' or 'Beast Like Me.'" I sent him all three and he picked "Virgin Sacrifice."

He came into the studio and said, "What do you want me to do?" I said, "I'm going to sit here and look at my phone. You do whatever the fuck you want to do. That's why you're here." And he did.

When it's time to work on a new album, what is the writing process like with you and Alex Story?
I write and compose and arrange all three instruments. I program all the drums, all the kick patterns and fills, and all the bullshit. I record the bass and guitar. Then I send it to the drummer and I send it to Alex and that's it.

You're getting ready to hit the road with GWAR. What can folks expect from your show?
It's just going to be brutal, man. That's what I do. I do brutal. That's my thing.

We'll be checking you out in Greensboro at Arizona Pete's. On most days of the week, that place is a country western bar. What's the strangest place Doyle has every played?
Strangest places are pizza parlors and shit. You walk in and you're like, "Why am I still doing this shit?"

Makes you rethink your career choice.
Really bums you out.



How is the crowd different at your shows today versus the shows back in the Misfits days?
Back in the Misfits days, nobody knew who we were. Now people know who we are.

All folks could talk about after last year's Riotfest was the Misfits reunion. You're playing two shows at the end of the year with Danzig and your brother. Any chance we'll get a full-fledged tour in 2018?
I hope so. That would be great. But it's not up to me, unfortunately.

What about new music?
Again, if it was up to me. I already got a fucking dozen songs ready to go, but it's not up to me.

Who is up to?
Not me.

As a performer, do you feel more pressure revisiting the Misfits songs at the reunion shows?
No. I can play those songs riding a unicycle naked and I ain't never rode a unicycle in my life.

Check back in a few weeks for photos and a review of the Greensboro show. Want to join us? Tickets are still available.
