Misery Signals have released their first new song in five years. The song is the first bit of music from a new record titled Absent Light which 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.
