The Misfits star Doyle Wolfgang Von Frankenstein is keen to reunite the original line-up of the punk group for a new album and tour.

The guitarist and his bandmates Jerry Only and Glenn Danzig fell out in the early 1980s and split in 1983, but Frankenstein tells Alternative Press it's time for him to bring the group back together.

He says, "I'm the only one that's gonna get the original line-up back together. So I think I'm going to work on that, and hopefully I can pull the two bulls together. I am going to make an attempt, and I wanna do it. I'll put what I'm doing right on the f**king side."

He reveals Danzig, Only and himself staged a meeting and discussed a possible reunion in 2002, but plans fell apart when an unknown party leaked the news: "It didn't happen and it's a shame. It's stupid that we're not doing it. It would be huge."
