Beware was the fifth release from the Lodi, New Jersey punk band The Misfits. Since it was originally intended to be available for the group's 1979 UK tour, it combined two earlier, out of press releases, with the substitution of one new track.
This 12" EP was co-released in the UK in January of 1980 by Armageddon /Spartan Records and Glenn Danzig's Plan 9 Records as number PLP9. A pressing run of 3000 was ordered with 3120 actually being delivered by the pressing plant. A limited number of copies were sold within the US through the Misfits Fiend Club, which included an 8"x10" photo of the album cover as an insert.
The first four songs were the same mixes used on the Bullet EP, but with the tracks in reverse order. The other side was essentially the Horror Business EP. However, the song "Children In Heat" was replaced by the only previously unreleased track, "Last Caress."
The entire EP was recorded at C.I. Recording in New York City, but on two separate occasions, one year apart. Bullet had been recorded in January of 1978. Horror Business was recorded one year later. "Last Caress" was also recorded at the first session, but was remixed, with reverb added to the vocals, in September of 1979 by Glenn Danzig and Bobby Steele . It was the only track ever to be released from that particular mixing session.
