Horror of '59 is a Cleveland, Ohio based horror rock band. Founded by brothers Deke (drums) and M Balmer (guitar)in 2004, the band's early material was heavily influenced by The Misfits and The Ramones. The band's lineup was completed in the summer of that year with Tommy Horror on bass and Bob Noxious on vocals. This lineup played its first gig in September of 2004 and released their debut album 'Screams From the Cellar' in October 2005.
Shortly after the release of 'Screams' M Balmer left the band. Deke moved to bass, Tommy Horror switched to guitar, and new drummer Brent Bastard joined the band. This also led to a change in the band's sound, which became a little more straight ahead rock with slightly more complex arrangements and lead guitar. The culmination was the release of the band's second album, 'The Golden Age of Sin', in November of 2007.
Deke recently left the band, and new bass player Jimmie Dale Killmore and second guitarist Tommy Roulette were added to the lineup. The band continues to gig regularly in NE Ohio as well as playing the occasional out of state gig.
