Misery Signals Misery Signals have announced their first new album in five years. The record is titled Absent Light and is due out July 23, 2013. The band opted to self-release the album this time around, and raised money for recording via an Indiegogo campaign which more than doubled their requested $50,000 with a $104,060 raise.

After their label - Ferret Records was absorbed by a Warner Music Group in 2010, Misery Signals 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. The band's last release was Controller in 2008.

The band has also announced some tour dates.
