Original metalcore pioneers MISERY SIGNALS return with their brand new album Ultraviolet, due for release on 7th August 2020 via Basick Records. The forthcoming record marks their first full-length release in seven years, and first with founding vocalist Jesse Zaraska since their 2004 debut, Of Malice and the Magnum Heart.
MISERY SIGNALS have also revealed a video for first single ‘The Tempest’, an in-your-face statement of intent that’s powerful and hook-laden in equal measure.
Commenting on the new track, lead guitarist Ryan Morgan states, “‘The Tempest’ feels like a concentrated dose of MISERY SIGNALS. I love that it crashes through with all this energy, with very little indulging. That type of songwriting economy was in my mind across this whole album. It’s interesting to hear a little bit of restraint work to actually make everything bigger.”

The most effective, connective and inspired creative expression often comes from those who’ve abandoned all aspirations beyond the art for the art’s sake. At a time when the vast majority of the so-called “scene” is obsessed with careerist goals, popularity and time-tested formulas, MISERY SIGNALS have reemerged from self-imposed hibernation to once again remake the rules and reassert the inherent power of true passion. Over fifteen years since their initial formation, the Midwestern musical collective remains driven by determination, resilience and the urgent need to share their work with their enduringly diehard supporters.
