CD Review: Missing Persons Have Been Found With A New Studio Album

The new wave pop band, Missing Persons broke out big in the 1980's with their debut album "Spring Session M" and the hit singles "Words" and "Destination Unknown." After two more less successful albums, the band disbanded in 1986 with lead singer Dale Bozzio leaving the band. After mildly successful solo careers, the members of Missing Persons have reunited a handful of times for short-lived reunion shows.

Now, 18 years since their last studio album, Missing Persons have reunited to release their first album of new material entitled "Missing In Action." It showcases that pop/punk, new wave sound that brought them success early in their career. The album will be release on March 4th through Cleopatra Records and was produced by Billy Sherwood (Yes).

The ten-song release begins with "Do or Die," a battle cry for the band as they modernize and energize their dated sound. Buozzio's vocals in "Hello, Hello" are sure to win you over as she easily retains her crown as the queen of new wave rock music. Missing Persons still show glimpses of their eighties "hay-day" with "Covert Operation" and "All The Way," before closing with the reggae groove of "Siren Song" and the grunge-rock edginess of "Crisis In Overdrive." The album also includes two bonus songs, the radio remix of the album's first single "Hello, Hello" and an acoustic version of one of their most popular songs "Walking In L.A."
