ABOUT HAUNTED GARAGE:
Fronted by B-horror movie actor Dukey Flyswatter, Haunted Garage formed in 1985, is, and was once on the Metal Blade Records roster, having released their ’91 album Possession Park on that label. The original incarnation of Haunted Garage ran from ’85-’93 and reunited occasionally since then, but in 2013, the band reformed with a new lineup, which alongside Dukey Flyswatter on lead vocals, features Andy “Satan” Chavez and Erik E. Wrath on guitar, Brian Beaver on drums, and Pat Rowan on bass. The upcoming new single is inspired by the 1987 B-horror movie of the same name, which Dukey appeared in.
