MISFITS PROJECT 1950 EXPANDED EDITION IN STORES & ONLINE NOW

PRE-ORDER THE MISFITS RECORDS ONLINE EXCLUSIVE VINYL VARIANT

EXPANDED EDITION CD 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 ("Witchcraft", "Daughter of Darkness" & "Devil in Disguise") 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".

The Expanded CD with all-new bonus tracks, newly expanded packaging art by Tony Squindo (Metallica), free poster, and extensive liner notes is in stores and online now. Also available at @ iTunes, plus Amazon and other digital music providers worldwide.

Pullin channels "Hybrid Moments," while Edmiston asks "Mommy, Can I Go Out and Kill Tonight?" Each design brings to mind old-school grindhouse artwork while featuring the iconic Misfits "Fiend".

Hybrid Tee Mommy Tee

MISFITS & JUICEHEAD LIVE IN THE UK!

Mass Movement Magazine


"JuiceheaD crank out some bustin O.S. punk rock; taking me back to my skater youth. They play hard and fast with some hints of ska, and entice a rather nice pit mid-set. They do look happy powering through songs ‘Rotting From The Inside’ ‘The American Dream’ ‘ Deadly Nightshade’ ‘Open Sore’ ‘Internal Bleeding’ ‘Disenchanted Youth’ and several more from their debut CD ‘How To Sail A Sinking Ship’ before dragging out a buddy to sing along to ‘Covered In Blood’ and finally closing their set with ‘Death Of Democracy’ (how’s that for punk rock) leaving behind a pleased crowd and me wanting to check out more about them.

photo credit : Greg Wheeler

Now the Misfits (should) need no introduction… the crowd swells largely here as the house lights dim, and all the stage attire is finely stripped of the black shrouds that have kept all the props ‘a secrecy’. Dramatically opening with title track from the new Cd ‘Devil’s Rain’ the Misfits are clearly here to prove to, and blow away any doubters…Jerry Only powers impressively through a well presented live stage set (props and lights included) concluding the first part of the set, quite rightly, being dedicated to for-said new Cd. Finally stopping for a few short words and then it’s old school time baby… ‘Static Age’ ‘Where Eagles Dare’ ‘ Death Comes Ripping’ ‘She’ and plenty more classics…and finishing the set with favorite ‘We Are 138’ before leaving the stage for a few minutes to return... An extensive encore of old classics and some new thrown in follows on. Set closer ‘Die Die My Darling’ is played at rocket speed finishing what proved to be a great Misfits gig. Jerry Only’s voice carried all the songs superbly keeping a classic Misfit vibe, and even the two songs that Dez sang fit in to secure the legacy that the Misfits are back and mean business (all be it a different line up, but a damn good one at that). "

Hit The Floor Magazine

"This was a night with Jerry Only behind the reigns, a night that will make your ears bleed but ultimately leave you screaming for more.

…the legendary JuiceheaD from Chicago managed to get a mosh pit going from the start to the very end of their set. The three-piece punk band delivered a lively and upbeat performance of dirty, jaw splitting tunes of every way, shape and form. With the comical facial expressions of vocalist Rob Vannice these guys were more than fun to watch.  From front to the back of the room they got the crowd well and truly hyped with their sing-along chorus’s and aggressive riffs. By the end of their set the audience were just about ready to wee their pants in excitement for The Misfits.

After a long and climatic intro with inches of smoke from the fog machine The Misfits were up and what an entrance they made! With skulls attached to every mike stand and a drum kit that looks like it had just risen from the grave. It was evident that the fans of Reading were in for a long night of horror fueled fun. With each song blasting into the next one Jerry Only left no time for applause and no time to stop the pits. It’s true what they say, there’s no rest for the wicked. With the generic dirty, grimy fast paced beats that make The Misfits so inspiring it is no wonder they are the iconic band they are. Jerry’s graphite bass guitar sounded as heavy as it probably was to hold and his trademark spiky leather jacket just added this surreal zombie, metal hedgehog look to the whole stage set. The strobe lighting got the crowd going crazy and the fists the high in the air as fans screamed along to the harsh sound of Jerry’s voice. By the end of the night it took an hour to get my hearing back but it was so worth it. With more line-up changes over the years than you can shake a fork at,  them members that now make up The Misfits are incredible. Jerry has still got it, and his voice is still as unique and mind blowing as it always was. Make sure you check them out on the rest of their UK tour while you still can!"

SPAUN DRUM COMPANY


Spaun Drum Company have teamed with the Misfits by endorsing the band and drummer Eric "Chupacabra" Arce. They've created a new state-of-the-art custom kit, specifically designed with the fiendish ferocity and visual theatrics the 'Fits are known for.

Spaun uses innovative methods and proprietary technology, (copied by many companies, but never equaled), that are seriously lacking in many custom drums. They design with a "sonic purpose" and believe that the continuous handling of each drum is an integral part of it's final sound. Every step of the way, there is a heart and soul, an energy, that is crafted into each Spaun drum. Look for the Misfits fiendish new custom kit by Spaun Drum Company to be unveiled on tour in the near future!

TODD MARINOVICH IS A FIEND:
"THE MARINOVICH PROJECT" AIRS SAT DEC 10TH @ 9PM ET ON ESPN

Marinovich. For a generation of sports fans, the name conjures an epic saga in a single word. Over time, the name has become shorthand for one of sport's most cautionary tales.

Todd Marinovich was seemingly raised to be the perfect athlete, meticulously engineered and nurtured into a star quarterback. Dubbed"the bionic kid" and "Robo QB" by the media, his performance lived up to the name. He set records, vied for the Heisman at USC and was selected in the first round of the ‘91 NFL draft by his hometown LA Raiders. But two years later, he was out of the NFL, facing drug addiction and in search of a life beyond football. "The Marinovich Project" tells the unvarnished story of Todd's unique ascent to stardom, the dark descent that followed, and how Todd traded an opportunity at sports stardom for the chance to be himself.

"The Marinovich Project" airs Sat. Dec. 10 at 9 p.m. ET on ESPN revealing the real person behind the persona and the story that has never been told.

Also airing Sat. Dec. 10th @ 11pm ET on ESPN2 and Sunday Dec. 11th @ 5am ET on ESPN2

Those who tune in to the new ESPN Films documentary will learn that in addition to being an established artist, Todd Marinovich is a fiend. His Misfits hat (which appears in the film) is a one of a kind made for him by his best friend and former band mate Marco Forster. Marco tragically passed away last summer.

"In todays trendy pop-culture The Misfits' skull is the essence of 'cool' because it truely is. But for me, it goes much deeper into the music and the artists' that create it." - Todd Marinovich

JuiceheaD dubbed:
"The three-headed Ghidorah or Cerebus of modern punk"!

"Vannice delivers his message with all the vitriol expected of a front man in the melodic thrash game—and does it all while playing in tight tandem with drummer Mike Garelli and bassist Tommy Kloss. Fans of The Casualties, Adicts, Green Day, Agent Orange, and Flogging Molly should take note ... One might think of them as the three-headed Ghidorah or Cerebus of modern punk."

The Misfits "The Devil's Rain" & JuiceheaD's
"How to Sail A Sinking Ship" win
Dying Scene's cover of the week:

Remember when buying an album meant something more than adding a dozen audio files to an already endless collection of impersonal mp3s? It was a time when liner notes actually got read and there was something really special about the art that graced an album’s cover. Today, in an industry dominated by iTunes and Pandora, it seems the cover art of an album is getting a little under-appreciated.

Well, Dying Scene aren’t letting the art form die off so easily. Whether bizarre, beautiful, thought provoking, or hilarious, each Tuesday they present the most interesting album covers from the albums released that week and let you readers vote on which one you think should win"Best Cover Art of the Week!"

MISFITS: THE DEVIL’S RAIN

"The Devil's Rain" is the judgment of all others who stand before us, like a prophecy. The old B-movie was an influence to some of the lyrics, but the song itself is as if the heavens opened and swallowed our enemies. They have...and a new"rain" of terror begins"

- Jerry Only

The Misfits return with their long awaited, first full-length release of all-new, original material in nearly a decade! Rooted in the horror and sci-fi themes fiends crave, "The Devil's Rain" showcases 16 fiendish, soon-to-be Misfits classics including "Twilight of the Dead", "Dark Shadows", "Curse of the Mummy's Hand" and the title track itself, "The Devil's Rain". Produced by Ed Stasium, (who's credits include the Ramones' "Road to Ruin" and "Too Tough to Die", as well as the Misfits' 1999 release "Famous Monsters"), the album showcases a jaw-dropping, two-panel front/back cover painting featuring the rebirth of the band's iconic "Fiend" mascot in an epic setting rendered by Arthur Suydam (known for his immensely popular work on the Marvel Zombies series, among others). The packaging, designed to emulate a CD sized gatefold LP, also features some incredible new Misfits portraits shot by the legendary Mick Rock. Rock's imagery (which includes Bowie, Iggy, Queen, Debbie Harry, and the Ramones to name a few), has become part of the very fabric of rock 'n' roll. Having also served as an on-set photographer for cult-movie classic "The Rocky Horror Picture Show", Rock lends a perfectly suited eye to view the band's surrealistic and highly theatrical persona. "The Devil's Rain" is not just a continuation of a historic legacy, it's a total reboot ushering in a new era of terror. In a sense, it's the debut album from the legendary Misfits of this decade. From fans of their classics, to newcomers discovering the band for the very first time, "The Devil's Rain" sets the bar, and redefines the ferocity and melody that has made the Misfits omnipresent and immortal.

First press Ltd. Deluxe Edition CD digipak includes an exclusive 9.5" x 14" two-sided poster featuring the incredible cover art by Arthur Suydam (treated with Glow-In-The-Dark ink!), plus a fantastic new band portrait by legendary photographer Mick Rock on the reverse.

Available now in stores and online wherever music is sold.

Order now @ Misfits Records online and receive a free, instant MP3 Download of the single"Twilight of the Dead"
to draw first blood from the new album.

New Misfits "Devil's Rain" tees also available.

Also look for the incredible iTunes LP available worldwide featuring an  animated rendering of the intense cover art by Arthur Suydam (art directed by John Cafiero), complete lyrics, photo gallery of stills by the legendary Mick Rock and more!

MISFITS & OSAKA POPSTAR FEATURED IN STICKER ART CULTURE BOOK: STICKERS: FROM PUNK ROCK TO CONTEMPORARY ART

Whether you’re a punk, skater, graffiti artist, musician, clothing brand, political activist, fine artist, or just a fan of a band, stickers have always been the perfect way to express oneself. 

"Stickers: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art" is a great new book by DB Burkeman and Monica LoCascio, with introductions by Shepard Fairey & Carlo McCormick. The book was published by Rizzoli, a leader in art and design books.

Among the works spotlighted in the comprehensive collective, the Misfits iconic Fiend Skull is featured, along with a quote from Misfits founding member Jerry Only himself about the logo’s impact on pop culture.

Three different Osaka Popstar sticker designs, art directed by John Cafiero, including the Devil Dog (illustrated by Mari-chan), Osaka Monstar (by Dalek) and Osaka Popcan (by John Pound), are also featured within the 308 page oversized coffee table book.

Stickers features approximately 4,000 stickers from the exploding, vibrant world of street art, DIY culture, music, and branding. Cheap, democratic, easy to "tag," and not always fast to fade, the sticker has been an ever-present medium—from the New York and London underground punk scene to skate culture and political expression. Celebrating the graphics of this street-art medium, Stickers illustrates the timeline of this pastime, from counterculture to politics. The book includes approximately 4,000 sticker graphics organized by categories and themes, with works by such diverse artists as Raymond Pettibon (Black Flag); street artists such as  Shepard Fairey, Banksy and Kaws; and amateur artists who "tag" the streets anonymously. The book illustrates not only the visual and social history of sticker art but also the personal relationship that street artists and pedestrians alike have with stickers. The book even includes eight sheets of stickers.

“Stickers: From Punk Rock to Contemporary Art" is out now in stores and online everywhere in Standard Softcover Edition OR, for hardcore collectors, pick up the Deluxe Ltd. Hardcover Edition packaged in an oversized clamshell box. Includes 23 original die-cut stickers, many of which are signed by the artist.

Check out a commercial for the book online featuring music by the Buzzcocks.

JERRY ONLY PERFORMS THE NATIONAL ANTHEM TO RECORD BREAKING ATTENDANCE AT SEATTLE'S KEY ARENA



"The Misfits have for a third of a century toured the world representing the United States of America. It was always a dream, and now my honor, to perform this song. I'd like to wish all the Fiends a safe and HAPPY 4TH OF JULY holiday".
- Jerry Only


CLICK HERE TO WATCH NOW

At the league's season championship bout, Seattle's Rat City Rollergirls set a new modern roller derby attendance record, maxing out the lower bowl of KeyArena with 6885 tickets sold and over 6000 people in attendance. While classic roller derby routinely filled arenas, notably including Madison Square Garden, through its heyday in the 1950s and '60s, audiences of this size are a very new development since the sport's reinvention in Austin, TX early in the decade, and more recently fueled in part by the film "Whip It". Misfits founding member Jerry Only was proud to be on hand to kick off the event by singing the national anthem for the packed house.

IN LOVING MEMORY OF ANTHONY CAIAFA

You will be missed.


In Loving Memory of Jim Powers

Jim Powers died the morning of Monday March 23rd at home surrounded by family. A wonderful father of six, grandfather of 14, and loving husband, Jim Powers served in the US Army for 25 years, taught at the Army War College (to as well as alongside esteemed colleagues including Colin Powell and Norman Schwarzkopf) and retired a Colonel. Although at times he held positions in high places such as the Pentagon, Colonel Jim Powers passed on many opportunities that promised far more money and commanded respect elsewhere, to devote time, energy and resources into the love and passion he had for his own hometown.

Colonel Powers dedicated his life to public service and even refused a paid position in the mayor's office offering to do the job for free instead. He was a man of integrity, honor, and pride. President and Vice-President for a multitude of noteworthy community organizations too numerous to list in their entirety, he also served as the Police and Fire Commissioner, Special Assistant to the Mayor, and founder of the NoGraf Network.

Misfits founder Jerry Only, who was especially close with his late father-in-law, reflects:

"He was like a father to me. He was a strong supporter of the band and respected the brotherhood he saw amongst the fiends. He thought it was great that the guys in the pit would knock each other down during a song, and then help each other up again. The unity of the punks really impressed him."

Jim Powers was born April 14, 1938 in Milwaukee, WI and died March 23, 2009 in Rockford, IL.

Jim Powers Honored

Today everyone is aware of the ecnomic crunch and the loss of American jobs. However in Rockford, Illinois the problem has been around for decades. My father-in-law Jim Powers stood strong to support his community for many years through various volunteer work and city appointed positions. Now he has been honored for his service by having a major street dedicated in his name, a front page story in the paper, and being named "person of the week" by the local ABC news.

I had the pleasure of working with the Colonel and Mayor Larry Morrissey in support of the N Factor, a center which helps educate Rockford's youth by rewarding scholastic effort with recreational credit. In December of 2007, the Misfits played a benefit show to support this center that Jim helped organize. Also in attendence was fellow community activist Rick Nielson of Cheap Trick. It was my pleasure to help out among such outstanding people.

I'd like to thank him for giving me Joanna's hand in marriage, supporting me with sound advice, and being a wonderful grandfather for our daughter. Congratulations on honors bestowed upon you. You are a true American hero!

God Speed, Jerry Only

IN MEMORY OF LUX INTERIOR

Lux Interior, frontman and founding member of legendary punk band the Cramps passed away on February 4th, 2009.

Lux formed the Cramps in New York in 1976 with his wife and guitarist, Poison Ivy. The Cramps had their own unique blend of music that was undeniably punk injected with elements of surf and rockabilly of the 1950s & 60’s. Horror and B-movie photo by Rocky Schenkthemes create a kinship between the Misfits and the Cramps, yet both bands have a distinctively different sound and visual image.

Jerry Only reflects:"I always wanted to play with The Cramps, especially on a Fiend Fest tour. He will be missed and remembered."

RIP Lux Interior 10/21/46 – 2/4/09

IN LOVING MEMORY OF FORREST J. ACKERMAN 1916 - 2008

Credited for coining the phrase "sci-fi" and discovering author Ray Bradbury, the legendary Forrest J. Ackerman passed away at age 92 in Los Angeles, CA on Thursday December 4th. Uncle Forrie, Dr. Ackula or the "Ackermonster" as he was affectionately known to friends and fans, was the founder and editor of the legendary monster magazine "Famous Monsters of Filmland". Famous Monsters was THE first monster mag and debuted in 1958. Forrie served as both writer and editor for 25 years inspiring generations in the horror and sci-fi industry including without question the Misfits who, without Famous Monsters, might not have developed into the same legendary persona we know today. Among many other noteworthy achievements, Mr. Ackerman was the creator of Vampirella and amassed what has been called the world's largest personal collection of science fiction and fantasy memorabilia in his "Ackermansion". Read more about the man who inspired so many in the LA Times and the Hollywood Reporter.

THE MISFITS MOURN THE LOSS OF OZZIE CADENA 1924 - 2008

"My father taught me how to walk my own walk and talk my own talk. That amongst many was one of his greatest contributions to me. I love him and thank him for that."
- Dez Cadena

The morning of April 9, 2008, Oscar "Ozzie" Cadena passed away peacefully at Little Company of Mary Hospital in Torrance with his family at his side.

Music producer, promoter, A&R man and jazz enthusiast, over the years Ozzie Cadena collaborated with some of the best in the business.

A longtime jazz lover, Cadena worked at Savoy Records in Newark, New Jersey during the 1950s as a producer and A&R man. He later produced records at Blue Note and Prestige.

Over the course of his career, Ozzie Cadena worked with greats like Cannonball Adderley, Dexter Gordon, John Coltrane, Donald Byrd, Ornette Coleman, and Milt Jackson.

His musical interests were not strictly limited to jazz. He also made contributions to gospel music, the blues, and R&B. "Gospel scholar Anthony Heilbut cites Cadena as one of the greatest gospel producers of all time." (Silsby)

Born in Oklahoma City, Cadena served overseas during WWII. He started his family and began his music career in Newark, New Jersey, the city in which he was raised. In 1974, the family relocated to the South Bay in California.

In his later years, Ozzie Cadena promoted jazz events throughout the city, but he is particularly known for keeping the jazz scene at the landmark jazz venue the Lighthouse Café in Hermosa Beach.

Cadena founded the Hermosa Beach Jazz Alumni and spearheaded the Pier Plaza Jazz Memorial Committee. Hermosa Beach's current jazz profile is almost entirely due to Cadena, an East Coaster who always acknowledged what West Coast jazz had to offer

Ozzie was father to LA writer Lori Nyx and musician Dez Cadena. Ozzie is also survived by his wife Gloria, son Pru, and grandchildren Kyle and Bret. In accordance with his wishes, there will not be formal services. A tribute concert will be organized at a future date. The family requests that you honor Ozzie's memory by attending a jazz performance and showing your support for the musicians to whom he dedicated his life.

Text from LAist.com, April 10th 2008.

IN MEMORY OF BEN CHAPMAN
Ben Chapman, a decorated Korean War veteran and real estate executive best known for playing the title character in the 1954 horror film "Creature From the Black Lagoon," passed away on February 21, 2008 at the age of 79. Chapman's role as the Gill Man, the quintessential 1950s monster in Universal Pictures' black-and-white film in 3-D, made him a favorite in the collectibles and sci-fi convention circuit all over the world. A Tahiti native, Chapman got the Gill Man part because of his size, 6 feet 5. He wore a foam rubber suit that defined his character: part-amphibian, part-man. "Creature" was released in 1954, when Chapman was under contract at Universal. In a 1993 interview with The Honolulu Advertiser, he said, "I never knew, when I did the movie at age 25, that it would be such a monster film," pun intended. He served in Korea with the Marine Corps, earning a Silver Star, a Bronze Star and two Purple Hearts.

Ben Chapman died peacefully with his wife, Merrilee, and son, Ben Chapman III, by his side. His body will be cremated and a memorial service will be held at St. Augustine By-The-Sea Church Waikiki in Honolulu. It will be held on Saturday, March 29 at 9:00 am. The scattering of the ashes willl follow off Waikiki Beach from Hawaiian outrigger canoes.

A few words from Jerry Only remembering Ben Chapman:

"We met Ben back in the 90's at the Chiller Theater convention and he became a good friend of ours. The first time we ever went to Hawaii (after our first tour of Japan), Ben (who lived there) caught up with us at the airport on our way out. He was friends with all of the local politicians, the mayor etc. and he jokingly threatened to have us thrown off the Island if we didn't call him to get together the next time we visited Hawaii. Having just gone to Hawaii in January on the first leg of the 30th Anniversary tour, I tried to get in touch with Ben and couldn't reach him. His illness explains why. Keeping my word, the first thing I did when I got to Hawaii was try to contact Ben. Besides, who wants to get thrown off of an Island by the Creature from the black Lagoon! Ben's memory lives on in the hearts of classic horror fans everywhere and his spirit will always be in the water. The creature will always walk among us..."

IN LOVING MEMORY OF VAMPIRA (1921 – 2008)

1/11/08
On January 10, 2008, Maila Nurmi, better known as the legendary 1950’s Los Angeles B-movie horror hostess"Vampira", passed away in her sleep at the age of 86. Said to be the inspiration for the Morticia Addams character in"The Addams Family", Vampira was the original"glamour ghoul" and the iconic star of Ed Wood’s"Plan 9 from Outer Space". She was also the subject of the classic song"Vampira" from the Misfits 1982 release"Walk Among Us".

Misfits founding member Jerry Only comments:

"I found her one of the bravest and most charming people despite heartbreaks that came her way. When she found out what she meant to us, she went out of her way to come down and see us at the record store Vinyl Fetish in LA for the release of"Walk Among us" in 1982 and I’ll never forget that."

She will be missed.
