Remember when we premiered Energy’s cover of the Misfits’ “Die, Die My Darling” a couple of weeks ago? Well, if you enjoyed that, you’ll love the rest of the EP – which is free!
Here’s more info from the press release:
Since their inception in 2006, the members of Energy have never been afraid to wear their influences on their sleeves. Perhaps no act has inspired the band more than than the horror punk progenitors known as the Misfits. The tribute began as a perk to those who donated to the band’s successful crowdfunding campaign for their recent EP, New World of Fear, before blossoming into something bigger.
“I’ve always wanted to do a Misfits tribute record,” explains vocalist Jason Tankerley. “Glenn Danzig has been my absolute number one influence since I was in middle school. There are just so many songs of theirs that I want to cover. Maybe we’ll do our own Collection 2 some day!”
Having previously released material on Bridge Nine Records, Energy is now embracing their DIY ethics. In addition to being self-released, A Tribute to the Misfits was recorded in frontman Jason Tankerley’s house with producer/friend Robert Cheeseman. Longtime collaborator George Berce provided the fiendish artwork. Energy teamed up with AbsolutePunk, Punknews, Lambgoat and iHorror to premiere songs from the album.
