Osaka Popstar are releasing a brand new super-sized limited collector’s edition vinyl 12-inch debuting the brand new single: “Super Hero”! The 12″ vinyl will be released tomorrow on Misfits Records. You can check out the single “Super Hero” on Pure Volume.

The inner sleeve reveals a super-sexy, 2-sided variant of the femme fatale cover art. The 12-inch additionally contains “Where’s the Cap’n?—Extra Crunchy Mix,” which is released for the first time in print.
The singer/producer, & longtime Misfits/Ramones collaborator, John Cafiero (aka Osaka Popstar) is additionally accompanied by members of the Misfits, Ramones, Black Flag & more (as special guests in a rotating backing band), plus sound bytes from vintage Cap’n Crunch TV commercials of the 60’s & 70’s blended into an ‘Extra Crunchy’ re-mix by DJ Product.
