UNFD is excited to announce the signing of one of the most influential metal bands of the last decade, Misery Signals. After five long years since their last release, Milwaukee metal band Misery Signals will return on July 26th with one of the year’s most anticipated albums, Absent Light.

Foregoing the traditional record release model, Misery Signals opted to work directly with fans to crowd-fund the new album. The band had not only reached their funding goal, but had surpassed it by double the amount.  The Support was a definite sign that fans were eagerly awaiting new music from the seminal band. "We were floored by the enthusiasm from the people supporting the album,” guitarist Ryan Morgan says.  “It's a good feeling to have an audience matching the enthusiasm we are putting into it's creation - and they haven't even heard it yet!  It'll all come together when they get to hear how insane this album is."

After Ferret Music was absorbed by a major label in 2010, Misery Signals were left to fend for themselves and 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 with Brian Southall (The Receiving End Of Sirens) and Justin Pierre (Motion City Soundtrack).

Now, the band that redefined a genre will return reinvigorated with a full time focus on the business at hand, and a determination to push the boundaries of hardcore-metal even further than before...

Misery Signals’ “Absent Light” will be released on Friday 26 July via UNFD. Pre-order available now via store.weareunified.com
