WHERE IT BEGAN - "LOST SKELETON RETURNS" - 2013
In January 2013 - the earth moved....Michale Graves,for the first time since leaving the iconic Horror Punk band The Misfits, re-entered the Monster Rock category that he help to re-define with the release of his best selling CD "Lost Skeleton Returns". After 12 years Graves had rediscovered his roots and created one of the best Monster Rock albums ever. Including his classics the album included classics from his "Punk Rock is Dead" album along with 4 brand we songs that have since become fan favorites including "Zombie", Something Wicked", Night of the Living Dead", "Forbidden Planet", "Last Man of Earth" and the title song "Lost Skeleton".
THE SEQUEL - "WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE"
After 2 years and several CD's released including "Wanderer", "Supernatural", "Zombies Unite" and others, Graves has decided its time............time to create the sequel to "LSR"....titled "When Worlds Collide". Inspired by the classic 1952 sci-fi film, "When Worlds Collide" will feature 10+ brand new full band monster rock songs.
The vibe of this album is raw pure Graves. Working titles for songs on the album include:
- "When Worlds Collide"
- "Things to Come"

THE MOST IMPORTANT SONG ON THE ALBUM - "Dying on Sunday Morning" - the sequel to "Crying on Saturday Night"
