Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein adds dates to As We Die World Abomination Tour

It takes great skill to put on facepaint and rock out in front of a crowd. It’s a skill that Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein has been perfecting for decades.

For those wondering if Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein is his real name, the answer to that question will be no, it isn’t. His government name is Paul Calafa, who was introduced to the world on Sept. 15, 1964 to the small town of Lodi, New Jersey.

Before his 16th birthday, he became a roadie for The Misfits, which contained his younger brother, Jerry Only, and was then led by lead vocalist Glenn Danzig. After his 16th birthday, he got the greatest gift any rock-and-roll hopeful could get -- he became a member of The Misfits.

In 1987, Doyle would form Kryst the Conqueror with his younger brother, Only (best last name, ever), but by 1995, Doyle and Only would be Misfits again, minus Danzig. In 2016, the original lineup would reunite, and by this time, Doyle had his own band, aptly named Doyle. His horror metal style would be one that many in the industry would come to praise and respect, and even at the cool age of 53, he’s still donning the face paint and rocking out with the best of them.

This fall, Doyle will be hitting the road on the As We Die World Abomination Tour, and he’s the complete tour itinerary and ticket information. Keep in mind that all dates and venues are subject to change.
