Evillive II (also known as Evilive II or Evilive 2)[4][5] is a 1998 live album by the American punk rock band Misfits. Featuring the "resurrected"[N 1] Misfits lineup of vocalist Michale Graves, bassist Jerry Only, guitarist Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein, and drummer Dr. Chud, the album was recorded between October 1997 and March 1998 at a number of concerts in the United States. The album was released on CD by Caroline Records on August 14, 1998, and was made exclusively available through the official Misfits' fan club, known as "the Fiend Club", and was also sold on tour; the CD has since gone out-of-print.

The album's title is reminiscent of the title of the band's previous live album, Evilive, which was released in 1987; the cover artwork for Evillive II was created by artist Pushead.

Recording and release[edit]

The tracks for Evillive II were recorded live at various concert venues throughout the United States between October 31, 1997 and March 10, 1998;[4] the album was released on CD by Caroline Records on August 14, 1998, and was made available to members of the official Misfits' fan club, known as "the Fiend Club", by mail order.[4][8] The album was also sold on tour between 1998 and 2000;[5] the cover artwork for the album was created by artist Pushead.[4][8] The first 1,000 copies were mistakenly printed in blue ink, and all subsequent copies were printed in white ink as originally intended;[5] the CD has since gone out-of-print.[5]

Bootleg recordings of Evilive II on CD were available in Europe as early as 2005;[8] the album was also bootlegged and released in Germany on LP records.[8]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The Misfits were formed in 1977 by original vocalist Glenn Danzig. The band went through several lineup changes before dissolving in 1983.[6] After a series of legal battles between Danzig and former bandmates Jerry Only and Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein, the band was reformed in 1995 with Michale Graves as the vocalist, Only on bass, Doyle on guitar, and Dr. Chud on drums.[7]
