EXPANDED EDITION LP

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 have an underlying horror-centric common thread, and are newly recorded exclusively for this release!

A monster lurking in the mind of Jerry Only for years is unleashed as Misfits Records presents “Project 1950″.

CD in stores October 27th with all-new bonus tracks, newly expanded packaging art by Tony Squindo (Metallica), free poster, and extensive liner notes.

Look for the vinyl LP edition coming in November pressed on 180-gram Ltd Ed vinyl with exclusive variant cover art by Tom Whalen (Mondo), retro-style jacket, plus first pressing on fluorescent yellow colored vinyl—while supplies last.

OVERCHARGE – Streaming “Nothing On The Way”; New Album “Accelerate” Releases On September 30th

Posted in Metal, metal bands, metal music, Music, music news, punk metal, Punk rock with tags , , , , on August 11, 2014 by Metal Odyssey

Overcharge - promo band pic - 2014 - #07902

Italian Punk Rockin’ Speed Metallers, OVERCHARGE, have posted a brand new track off their upcoming new album, Accelerate. The song, Nothing on the Way, is now streaming below:

OVERCHARAGE is in fact Punk Rock, Rock ‘n Roll, and Speed Metal rolled up into one.  The Italians sound like a drunken fist fight between MOTORHEAD and Kill ‘em All-era METALLICA, if everyone involved was gargling broken glass and DISCHARAGE was playing on the jukebox. It’s nothing less than adrenaline-fueled, mohawked mayhem!

Featuring a member of label mates OMNIVORE, OVERCHARGE wear their influences on their tattoo sleeves, but don’t sound overly beholden to any one of them.  Like all good Rock ‘n Roll, songs and riffs matter more here than emulating a specific set of heroes. Accelerate will be the first full-length from these maniacs.

Accelerate is set for worldwide release on September 30 via Unspeakable Axe Records.

Taking their name from a Neil Young lyric – ‘All those rough boys, playin’ that rock and roll’, this four track ripper full of aggression and emotion is the follow-up to 2012′s Speed and 2011′s Spithead, sure to leave you in both shock and awe while forcing you to press ‘Play’ again and again. Sharing the stage with bands like Cauldron, Fuck The Facts, Axxion, Midnight Malice, Adrenechrome, Saigon Hookers to name a few, THE ROUGH BOYS don’t hold back on their brass knuckle punch to the face and showing fans a rocking booze fueled good time.
