“Misery Signals has risen the bar for all modern metalcore bands, let’s just hope they all get the memo.” Absolute
Misery Signals has announced that they will be stepping into the studio this week to begin the recording process for their third Ferret Music full length, album title TBA. The band will be recording with Devin Townsend (Strapping Young Lad, Darkest Hour, Soilwork), and are excited about working with him again, tells bassist Kyle Johnson, “Devin has this awesome new set-up and new gear, so that’s exciting. Recording with him is a good experience, and we intend on using him as producer as well. He always makes great contributions and suggestions to the songs, and he is really understanding about what kind of sound we are going for.” Townsend himself is gearing up for a momentous experience, saying that “This is gonna be a record that brings the band to a new level. The rock will continue to roll in a fastidious way.” The band is well along in the process of writing, tells Johnson, “Musically the songs are written, but lyrically we are still writing. Basically, we took both records and put them together, with a new sound mixed in as well. This will be a little more straightforward than the last two albums, and for the most part it’s influenced by what we are into personally. It’s definitely more something that has parts that you can hold onto and that are memorable.” This is the band’s second album recorded with vocalist Karl Shubach, and he is happy to have comfortably settled into his role. “I feel like it’s my band now, it’s not Misery Signals plus Karl and I’m much more comfortable being part of what we represent. I also feel like music is more of my own, and I’m psyched about the new record, it’s got a lot of elements that weren’t in last one, a lot of parts that are just heavier with a lot of off-time polyrhythm like Meshuggah.”
The new album is the follow up to 2006’s highly successful sophomore effort Mirrors, which Alternative Press listed in their 100 BANDS YOU NEED TO KNOW 2007 issue and Revolver as a BAND TO WATCH saying, “A relentlessly ambitious melodic, metalcore band with a knack for exhausting members with their take-no-prisoners touring schedule.” Metal Edge chimed in recently with, “The album surpassed all expectations.” Online raves included Digital “Everything on Mirrors is bigger and better than Of Malice and the Magnum Heart (itself one of my favorite metalcore albums); the packaging, the production, the riffs, the density etc.”  The band toured a ton in support of Mirrors, most recently wrapping up a US headlining tour with The Agony Scene, Emmure, and Sky Eats Airplane, and a full Canadian run with Shai Halud and The Human Abstract. Past touring partners include The Chariot, All that Remains, Darkest Hour, Dead to Fall, Norma Jean and Between The Buried And Me. Keep checking for album updates.
