Misery Signals Premiere “The Tempest” Video, Reveal Details For New Album “Ultraviolet”

Misery Signals have premiered a new video for their new song “The Tempest.” This track is from the band’s new album “Ultraviolet,” which will be released on August 7.

Ryan Morgan said the following about the new song:

“‘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.”

He also added the following about the album:

“Jesse [Zaraska] 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 continued:

“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.”

“Ultraviolet” Track Listing:

01. “The Tempest”
02. “Sunlifter”
03. “River King”
04. “Through Vales Of Blue Fire”
05. “Old Ghosts”

Darkest Hour Postpone West Coast Tour With Misery Signals & SECT

Darkest Hour have postponed their West Coast tour with Misery Signals and SECT due to the coronavirus pandemic. The trek will be rescheduled at a later date.

Darkest Hour commented:

“Due to complications beyond our control, and in an effort to keep our fans and loved ones safe, we will be postponing our 25th Anniversary West Coast Tour, scheduled for this April 2020, and will reschedule for later this year.

All pre-sale tickets will be honored for the re-scheduled dates. Refunds will be available at point of purchase, but we encourage you to hold on to those tickets to help support these venues while they try to survive this.

Many of our friends in bands, who work at clubs, who work as restaurants, who work in other service industry jobs have been hit very hard the past few days with all the virus madness and we encourage you to reach out to those that you can with whatever support you have at your means.

This virus is a terrible threat, but so is fear.

We must be there for each other and you know we will always be there for you.

There are many places you can access our music for free right now. If the stress of these modern times are bringing you down then crank that shit up, that’s partially why this music was created!!!

We also encourage you to support our brothers in Misery Signals and Sect XVX who no doubt have expenses associated with the postponement of the dates.

Please show some love to the clubs and promoters who will DESPERATELY need you to come back once the CDC lifts its crowd limit recommendation. Please keep checking the CDC website for updates and recommendations of what to do during the coming weeks: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-nCoV/index.html

As for us, we continue to be thankful for the opportunity to do this, a heavy metal show is truly a special thing and we cherish the joy of the stage

We are very active and accessible via our Official Patreon Page: https://www.patreon.com/DarkestHourOfficial

This is the best way to financially support us as well as get some bad ass limited items!

We also have merchandise available via our DIY-Webstore (each order is packed by a band member and we always throw in something special): https://darkesthour.bigcartel.com
