From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Michale Graves is a singer/songwriter. He is most famous for singing for the late 1990s re-incarnation of The Misfits, from 1995 to 1998 and again from late 1998 until late 2000. He was recording a demo with his then band Mulch in Lodi, New Jersey, when the engineer told him the Misfits were auditioning singers. He had never heard a Misfits song before, so he immediately bought the Collection I album to learn them.

New Misfits drummer Dr. Chud quickly took Mike under his wing and a friendship was formed that lasted years.

Mike's singing can be found on American Psycho, Famous Monsters and Cuts from the Crypt. He also wrote original songs for the band including Dig Up Her Bones, Saturday Night, This Island Earth, Fiend without a Face, Shining, The Haunting, Witch Hunt, and Fiend Club. He co-wrote many songs as well.

After leaving the Misfits, he and Dr. Chud formed the band Graves (drawing a parallel with the original Misfits singer Glenn Danzig, who left the band to form Samhain (band)). After two successful U.S. tours and the verge of a breakout record contract, that band dissolved due to differences between Graves and Chud, and Michale formed Gotham Rd. They released one album before going on hiatus so Michale could join the U.S. Marines. After being honorably discharged, Michale went to work on his debut solo record "Punk Rock is Dead".

In August of 2005, Michale's guitarist for both the Gotham Rd. and the Michale Graves solo project abruptly quit after a cancelled U.S. and U.K. tour, leaving Michale scrambling for a new guitarist. He is currently touring with J-sin Trioxin of Mister Monster. The current touring lineup is Graves, Trioxin, JV Bastard, and Matt Johnson on drums.

Graves is a vocal conservative and a founder of the Conservative Punk movement. He was featured on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart for his involvement in the conservative punk scene.
