Crash Test Dummies, Marc Mysterio, Mark Crozer Refugee Benefit Song

(Amerada) Marc Mysterio has teamed up with Crash Test Dummies and Mark Crozer on a new rock track to honor and benefit the refugees now descending upon Europe in search of their 'Promised Land'. We were sent these details:

"These embattled families have crossed a good portion of the earth on foot seeking a better life for themselves and their kids -- in search of their 'Promised Land' -- and we wanted to dedicate this song to those who have made the trip, as well as to inspire others to never give up" says Marc Mysterio whom in 2013 produced and released 'Booty On The Floor' with Flo Rida to honor the victims of the Boston Marathon Bombing Victims lauded by media globally, including Celebrity Scribe Perez Hilton.

'Promised Land' marks the first new material release featuring Crash Test Dummies in some time, while their 90s hit 'Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm' was remixed by Marc Mysterio earlier this year reaching the Top 100 on Beatport, and #1 on the Belgian ITunes Album Chart.

While the new song was written, composed and produced by Marc Mysterio, Mark Crozer (whom recently had a globally successful recording 'Live In Fear' selected as the Theme Entrance Music for WWE Superstar Bray Wyatt) recorded the guitar, bass, piano and drum tracks for 'Promised Land'.

The vocal duties on the charity effort were handled by Crash Test Dummies and Marc Mysterio himself, a dual debut of sorts for the famed DJ/Producer both as a vocalist, and in the rock genre.

"Sadly, the perilous journey to these 'safe countries' is only half of the battle for these refugees as the conditions they face upon arrival, even in affluent countries like Germany,Ireland and Iceland, are brutal and we need to bring more attention to this and encourage people to make them as comfortable as possible, while giving them the medical, humanitarian, and legal support they require - hopefully the song is one small step in that direction!" concludes Mysterio whom has previously worked on records for stars such as: Flo Rida, Katy Perry, Natalie La Rose, David Guetta, Samantha Fox, and Daft Punk.

'Promised Land' by Marc Mysterio & Crash Test Dummies ft. Mark Crozer goes on iTunes pre-sale September 17th, and will be available on Spotify and ITunes Worldwide on September 25th with the proceeds from sales going to the International Red Cross.
