MISERY SIGNALS release new video for “The Tempest”, first new song with original vocalist in 16 years!

It’s been 16 years since metalcore vets MISERY SIGNALS released a song with their original vocalist Jesse Zaraska, but now the band is back with a brand new song and video “The Tempest”, coming from their new album Ultraviolet, to be released August 7th through Basick Records.

Lead guitarist Ryan Morgan comments:

“‘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.”

“Jesse has this really clear voice, and even in his most vicious screaming the vulnerability gets through first. People will hear the record and there won’t be any need for decoding the emotional content. ‘Sunlifter’ was the first song we wrote for the record and it set the tone thematically for the lyrics on the album, which came to be about ambition and striving and all the parts of ourselves that are in contradiction with each other.”

Zaraska adds:

“It is a record that purveys a much greater sense of hope than those that preceded it, and I think that as older individuals this was important from the onset of the process. I tried to create a Misery Signals record that was lyrically more positive than the previous outings, something that I could get behind as a father. Though there still exists a fair amount of tension and darkness, there shines a great amount more light.”
