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!

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'. Longtime Misfits & Ramones collaborator John Cafiero (Osaka Popstar) contributes melodic punk-pop backing vocals to 'Dream Lover', 'Monster Mash' and 'Runaway', plus Ed Manion (50's icon Dion, Bruce Springsteen's E Street band & more), appears on sax for select tracks. 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 37 year-long legacy, Misfits 'Project 1950' debuted on Billboard's Heatseekers Chart at #2, and Billboard's Top Independent album chart at #5 in its initial release over a decade ago.
