Misery Index Prepares To Enter The Studio

Misery Index has issued the following statement about preparing to enter the recording studio:

"Greetings all, we are happy to say the hibernation has paid off, and we have roughly 9 songs in preparation for the January recording of our 4th full length, to be recorded at Wrightway Studios in Baltimore, Maryland beginning January 2nd, 2010. These are the guys that mixed and mastered 'Traitors,' so we are excited to do the entire project there this time around. We will have more details on that in the coming weeks.

"In the meantime, we are pleased to announce, at long last, our discography collection of splits and EPS, entitled 'Pulling Out The Nails' (after the first song the band wrote). It will feature 30 tracks, and include ALL non-album material from 2001-2008, including the Overthrow and Dissent EPs, as well as the splits with Structure of Lies, Commit Suicide, Mumakil, and Bathtub Shitter, the Hang em' High 7", live tracks, bonus covers etc. The compilation was remastered by Scott Hull this year, and will be available in January on cd through our own Anarchos records imprint, and on double vinyl through Power It Up (Germany) soon after. This cd will also include an extensive 24 page booklet of details, notes, pictures, and an all-time list of all the shows we have performed. We hope its the final representation of the various incarnations of the band in the past 8 years. Til then, more news soon!"
