It certainly isn’t everyday you come across a story like this one. Co-host Myke Hideous learned the hard way that “no good deed goes unpunished”. Guitarist “Tony Mars” turned out to be a huge problem for the band. Several band members called in to express their disdain for ex-guitarist “Tony”.

After his Misfits experience, Myke Hideous briefly fronted his horror punk side project, Spy Society 99 and The Bronx Casket Co., with whom he recorded the albums The Bronx Casket Company (1999), Sweet Home Transylvania (2002), and Hellectric (2005), all credited as “Spy”.

In 2003, Myke released a new studio album, Say Your Prayers. Myke felt inspired to resurrect The Empire Hideous shortly after 9/11 when a friend remarked, “if ever there were a time for The Empire Hideous to resurface as America’s number one, apocalyptic gothic rock band, now would be that time” Myke reunited with former guitarist Jeff Austin for the record and it was met positively by fans.

In 2009, Myke announced he would be working on his final album and also began collaborating on the documentary Living the American Nightmare: The Story of a Rockstar. This documentary features Myke Hideous as the main subject, and is loosely based around his 2002 memoir. It includes footage of his early concerts, along with interviews from Myke and many musicians who had worked with him over the years. It also includes Peter Steele’s final interview before his death in April, 2010.

At the beginning of 2011, Myke released his final album of new material, The Time Has Come. This record included the cover song “Moving in Stereo” by The Cars as a free download on his website to commemorate the death of his long-time friend Peter Steele (lead vocalist of Type O Negative), as it was one of Steele’s favorite songs.

Within the next year, Myke also released his Spy Society 99 material for the first time on CD, Die Punk, Die, a 12 track album featuring nine songs only previously available on cassette and three new tracks and an album of remixes, Remixes Through Time. Some tracks from Remixes Through Time were included in the Living the American Nightmare: The Story of a Rockstar documentary.

In 2016, Myke Hideous re-released his autobiography titled King of an Empire to the Shoes of a Misfit: The Memoirs of Myke Hideous. It includes an added chapter, chronicling his professional and personal life from 2002-2013.
