Ghoul rock was for the kids in the suburbs where nothing ever happens. Andy Weller of the Necros recalls the band's transition from traditional punk rock in the late s to hardcore in the early s: " You could hear it on the records. It went from this Ramones -type stuff, to nine months later, where they put out records that were so fast it's unreal. According to Blush, "The Misfits' strengths as a hardcore group lay in non-[hardcore] attributes—melodic songs and larger-than-life-aura—but by the time of Earth AD Glenn was writing hyperspeed blasts that sounded very standard.
The new version of the Misfits launched by Jerry Only and Doyle in the s had a style that was a little different from older Misfits songs. Reviewing American Psycho , Stephen Erlewine of AllMusic called the new incarnation "a kitschy goth-punk outfit that relies more on metal than hardcore",  while Rolling Stone remarked that the band's new style blended "some old-style punk, a little metal and an occasional all-out thrasher.

Retrieved May 21, Retrieved June 18, The band toured intermittently in support of the album until , when Ramone left the band and was replaced by Robo. They booked a full European tour that year, but problems with Robo's visa led to the cancellation of all dates in the United Kingdom. A rescheduled UK tour followed in September. Doyle joined Danzig onstage during tours from to for half-hour sets of early Misfits songs. Doyle had meanwhile reunited with Glenn Danzig, joining Danzig onstage during performances in December to play guitar for minute sets of old Misfits songs midway through the band's setlist.
It was the first time the two had performed together in over twenty years, and the first time Doyle had performed since his hiatus. Danzig called the performances "the closest thing to a Misfits reunion anyone is ever going to see". Glenn Danzig had announced his intention to retire from touring following these, though he later contradicted this by announcing a Danzig 20th anniversary tour in Doyle later indicated that plans had been in place for the Misfits to reunite with Glenn Danzig beginning in , but that Jerry Only and his manager had "put a fuckin' monkey wrench in it.
In and , the Misfits performed an extended 30th anniversary world tour. A new single, Land of the Dead was released October 27, , marking the band's first release of new studio material in six years and the only release by the lineup of Only, Cadena, and Robo.
The first of the four shows, which took place on October 7 in Chicago, saw a sold-out crowd. Danzig and Doyle continue to regularly play Misfits songs, most recently as part of the Danzig 25th anniversary tour. On May 12, , it was announced that Danzig, Only and Doyle would perform together as the Misfits for the first time in 33 years at two headlining shows in September at the Riot Fest in Chicago and Denver.
The set featured 25 songs. In an interview with Rolling Stone following the first reunion show Only was asked about the future of the Misfits, and if there were plans to continue and possibly record new music. I know Doyle wants it to continue. I know Glenn wants it to continue. We just have to be big-enough people to make it continue. And that's where we're at. Whatever it takes. We're going into our 40th anniversary so the timing couldn't be more perfect.
Eventually Doyle's got to write a new album; I've got to write a new album; Glenn's got to write a new album. Why don't we work together and make the greatest album ever? Now we've got different elements. We've got Doyle playing more of a metal kind of thing. We've got Dave, who we're trying to figure out what the fuck he's doing. And Glenn's got his own thing. And Acey Slade, second guitar fills in good, too.
And I've got the band where it is today. So it's a matter of re-molding and using all the different elements that I've got. The thing is we've tried to plan things, and then we stand there and wait, and as it comes we'll just do it. When we go back — I don't know about Glenn — but I canceled our touring and everything for this, so I'm going to go home and write and lift.
