The Misfits have dropped off the ongoing Volcom 2008 Tour. The tour is being headlined by legendary British heavy metal act MotÃ¶rhead and features bands like Valient Thorr and Year Long Disaster. The Misfits posted:
For the sake of our loyalty and dedication to all our fiends, the Misfits have chosen to withdraw from the lineup of Volcom's 2008 tour. The Misfits have always held an incredibly high standard of performance and quality in everything we do. Our fans expect this and deserve it. I will not compromise their expectations for any amount of money, prestige or fame. I apologize for the inconvenience and will reschedule performances wherever possible throughout our upcoming tour this Oct.
The shows were to be the first time that MotÃ¶rhead and the Misfits had played together in the United States. The Misfits these days are a three piece consisting of bassist Jerry Only backed by former Black Flag members Dez Cadena and Robo.
