The heavy metal talk show Two Minutes To Late Night has joined forces with some familiar faces for a cover of Misfits‘ “Earth A.D.“ Frank Iero, Hatebreed‘s Jamey Jasta, The Dillinger Escape Plan‘s Ben Weinman, Max Weinberg and Jordan Olds were recruited for the new cover.
The musician-filled Misfits cover was created in support of Patreon.
For this new cover, Two Minutes To Late Night managed to find musicians that span various music genres. Iero is known for his work in My Chemical Romance and Frank Iero and The Future Violents. Jasta is best known as the vocalist of Hatebreed and his solo music under the project Jasta.
Along with The Dillinger Escape Plan, Weinman is also a member of Suicidal Tendencies and the supergroup Giraffe Tongue Orchestra. Alice In Chains‘ William DuVall, Mastodon‘s Brent Hinds, former The Mars Volta drummer Thomas Pridgen and Zappa Plays Zappa’s Pete Griffin complete the supergroup.
Weinberg is both a drummer and a television personality. He is best known for his work with Bruce Springsteen and on Late Night With Conan O’Brien. Two Minutes To Late Night‘s own Jordan Olds (aka Gwarsenio Hall) helps complete the group for this Misfits cover.
“We got three of New Jersey’s most talented hoagies plus a Connecticut Hatebreed in King Danzig’s Court to assemble to form the punk supergroup you had no idea you needed,” Two Minutes To Late Night says.
Together, the musicians performed for a fresh take on Misfits’ classic “Earth A.D.” According to the heavy metal talk show, this new “bedroom” cover is in support of Patreon. Due to coronavirus, musicians are unable to tour, leading many to struggle financially. Patreon helps creators earn money through the posting of original content.
Two Minutes To Late Night hopes that this new cover will help those who need a little assistant during these uncertain times.
“This is our 16th bedroom cover made with the support of Patreon,” the statement says. “With so many musicians stuck at home with no outlets, we’re going to keep producing these style videos. And use the Patreon to give some money to everyone who has a part in them.”
