An exclusive preview of a brand new album track can now be heard here:
If you're unfamiliar with the Misery Signals story, read on:
Foregoing the traditional record label release model, Misery Signals launched an Indiegogo campaign in March to work directly with fans to crowd-fund the new album by offering unique funding packages that included handwritten lyrics, vinyl box set, music lessons, listening parties and more. By May, the band had not only reached their funding goal, but had surpassed it by double the amount. The support was a definite sign that fans were eagerly awaiting new music from the seminal band.
We were floored by the enthusiasm from the people supporting the album. It's a good feeling to have an audience matching the enthusiasm we are putting into it's creation - and they haven't even heard it yet! It'll all come together when they get to hear how insane this album is.
After Ferret Music was absorbed by a major label in 2010, Misery Signals were left to fend for themselves and took a hiatus to pursue individual side projects with singer Karl Schubach focusing on metal outfit Solace, guitarist Ryan Morgan founding the hardcore/punk band Burning Empires and drummer Branden Morgan starting The Company We Keep with Brian Southall (The Receiving End Of Sirens) and Justin Pierre (Motion City Soundtrack).
Now, the band that redefined a genre will return reinvigorated with a full time focus on the business at hand, and a determination to push the boundaries of hardcore-metal even further than before...
MISERY SIGNALS will release ‘Absent Light’ in the UK and Europe on July 22nd 2013, via Basick Records.
