Misery Signals Releasing Documentary

Over the last decade, influential hardcore band Misery Signals has undergone overwhelming changes involving the departure of the group's founding singer and infighting that nearly left the band in complete shambles.

In a new documentary, directed by Matthew Mixon and titled “Yesterday Was Everything,” the band members takes viewers on an intimate journey of reconciliation as they find healing in the present by confronting the demons of the past. The documentary will be available on June 30th at iTunes, Google Play and Amazon.

Misery Signals will be hosting an in-theater screening of the documentary in Edmonton, AB on June 20th (7:00pm at Metro Cinema at the Garneau, 8712 109th Street, Edmonton AB) with partial proceeds being donated to Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Filmed during a 2014 tour in celebration of the 10th anniversary of coveted album, "Of Malice and the Magnum Heart," this documentary follows the band reuniting with its former vocalist for the first time since his unceremonious ousting a decade prior. The film explores the fatal tragedy that brought the band together and follows a journey from Vancouver to Toronto facing old ghosts and attempting to reconcile the past. More...

Misery Signals Announces Anniversary Show

Milwaukee based metalcore outfit Misery Signals celebrated the 10th anniversary of the album "Of Malice and the Magnum Heart" with the Malice X tour, playing shows in select cities in August.

Due to popular demand from fans, the band is back for round two on the West Coast announcing a show at the Glasshouse Theater in Pomona, CA on December 19th, 2014. Malice X features the original lineup of Ryan Morgan, Branden Morgan, Kyle Johnson, Stu Ross, and Jesse Zaraska.

Bassist Kyle Johnson had this to say: “After doing the first run of the Malice X dates I think it made us realize just how important it was for kids to be able to see this version of Misery Signals. So many had missed it in its original incarnation. There seemed to be a bit of an outcry that we didn’t include California as a destination on the last run. We managed to find a weekend in December that worked out so we jumped at the opportunity.”

Along with the special appearance in California, Misery Signals will be joined by seminal hardcore band, Taken, to the show as direct support. Vocalist Ray Harkins commented:

“I wish Misery Signals was around when Taken was regularly touring. When I first listened to their demo/EP I felt an immediate kinship to what they were doing, blending heavy music and melodic guitar into something unique. A few months later, the guitarist Stu Ross sent a very heartfelt and sincere email about how much Taken had meant to him. From that point on a friendship was formed and I continued to love what Misery Signals did throughout their musical career. We can’t wait to hit the stage with these guys for the first time, and hopefully not the last.” More...

Misery Signals Reuniting For Anniversary Tour

Milwaukee metal band Misery Signals created quite a frenzy last week when the band announced via social media that it would be hitting the road with the original line-up to celebrate the tenth anniversary of debut album "Of Malice and The Magnum Heart."

The band is now thrilled to reveal the complete itinerary for the Malice X tour. The 8-show tour, which sees original members Jesse Zaraska, Kyle Johnson, Ryan Morgan, Stu Ross, and Branden Morgan performing the debut album in its entirety, will kick off in Vancouver, BC on August 13th at The Biltmore Cabaret and will wrap up in Toronto at The Opera House on August 2rd3. For full tour information see below.

Bassist Kyle Johnson had this to say: "Malice was written and released at such a critical time in our lives as musicians. After the disbanding of 7 Angels 7 Plagues and the Compromise accident, there was a lot of emotion in the air in the Misery Signals camp. We were able to capture that raw emotion and create Of Malice and the Magnum Heart in response to those events. It’s the single most important musical release of our lives. I'm thrilled to have an opportunity to shake up those old feelings once more, ten years later, with the very people who made it possible."

Misery Signals Announces New Album

After five long years since the group's last release, Milwaukee metal band Misery Signals will return on July 23rd with "Absent Light." Today, the band has officially announced the album title, release date, album artwork, and upcoming record release tour in July and August.

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 the funding goal, but had surpassed it by double the original amount.

"We were floored by the excitement from the people supporting the album,” guitarist Ryan Morgan says. “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."

Misery Signals Drops Off Tour with BMTH

Misery Signals has dropped off the remaining tour dates with Bring Me The Horizon. Misery Signals vocalist Karl had been ill and his doctor recommended that he take 2-3 weeks off to heal.

Karl sent out a bulletin explaining the problem:

"First of all, I want to start off by properly thanking each and every one of you who has messaged me and wished me on a fast road to recovery. The feedback and concern shown by you guys really gives me a drive to get my ass back up to par. I've been home for almost a week now.
I've been in and out of Doctor's offices and Emergency Rooms, and this is what they've concluded:

"I do NOT have MONO.....sort of. Apparently I've had mono over the course of this past year without even knowing it (which would explain me being exhausted 24 hours a day) but that wasn't what was acting up. Finally after my throat swelled up to the point of potential closure, I dragged my ass to the emergency room. After several blood tests and an I.V. put in my arm to re-hydrate me, the doctor plain and simply told me that tonsillitus was causing the severe infection to my throat (imagine having a golf ball with razor blades sticking out of it lodged in your throat), nose and ears.

"Estimated recovery time: 2-3 weeks.

"So there you have it. Sorry to all the kids that came out to the remainder of the Bring Me The Horizon tour hoping to see us there. This was completely unexpected, and now that I've explained my current situation, you can understand why we took precautions."

Comeback Kid Has Van and Trailer Stolen On Tour

During the morning of Thursday, Oct. 23rd, Comeback Kid had their van and trailer stolen outside their hotel in Montreal while on the "Through The Noise Tour." After driving to Montreal following a show in Drummondville, PQ, the band checked into their hotel at 2:30am and parked the van in a public lot. When they returned to the lot the following afternoon to go to the venue, the van was gone.

“We called around to make sure the van hadn’t just been towed,” said guitarist Jeremy Hiebert “and once we realized what had happened, we just tried to deal with it.” In addition to their van and trailer, the band lost all of their gear and merchandise, as well as their personal belongings.

While some people would be deterred by such an incident, Comeback Kid just forged on. Using borrowed gear they played Thursday night in Montreal, headlining the Through The Noise Tour with Misery Signals, Bane, Out Break, Shai Hulud and Grave Maker. They will finish the tour with dates in Toronto, London, Guelph and Hamilton before returning home and resting up before a South American tour in November.
