An Interview with Michale Graves of the Misfits
Known for introducing the music sub-genre, horror-punk, The Misfits were a legendary punk-rock band of the 80s. Leading the band’s revival in the 90s was the self-titled “music man,” Michale Graves. Donning the Misfits’ staple, skull make-up, Graves carried the band of punk rockers up to the new millennium and expanded their reach to the next generation. Though it has been over a decade since the last Misfits’ record, Graves has continued to pursue a solo career as a singer-songwriter. Substituting face makeup for face paint, this husband and father of two is far from the former hard rock archetype he portrayed for many years. Promoting the release of his brand new album, Vagabond, Michale Graves shared with Grooveshark that an artist evolves just as much as the music they were put on this earth to create.
