The Misfits special project showcasing punk covers of 1950’s era rock ‘n’ roll classics assembles an all-star line-up to bring this creature to life!
Misfits founding member Jerry Only frontlines the spiked jukebox on Bass and lead vocals for every track – along with Black Flag alum Dez Cadena utilizing an arsenal of guitars to achieve a dynamic that best suits each song, and much more…
60’s pop-rock icon Ronnie Spector (known for timeless classics like “Be My Baby” and “Baby I love You”) makes a special guest appearance lending her inimitable vocals to “This Magic Moment” and “You Belong to Me”.
The expertise of Jimmy Destri (Blondie) shines on keyboards for re-workings of “Runaway” & “Great Balls of Fire”. Also featured is longtime Misfits & Ramones collaborator John Cafiero (Osaka Popstar) contributing melodic punk-pop backing vocals to “Dream Lover”, “Monster Mash” and “Runaway”. Ed Manion (of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street band) who has performed with a wide variety of artists–including 50’s icon Dion, provides saxophone for “Diana” and “Runaway”.
The gamut of 50’s era music has been reinterpreted along with a couple of 60’s era hits that were must haves for this theme driven collection.Notably the highest charting release in the band’s entire legacy, “Project 1950” is presented in an all-new expanded edition featuring three never-before released bonus tracks with Misfits drummer Eric “Chupacabra” Arce rounding out the lineup.
All three songs (“Witchcraft”, “Daughter of Darkness” & “Devil in Disguise”) have an underlying horror-centric common thread, and are newly recorded exclusively for this release!
