According to a recent update posted on their official website, Chicago punks The Mizzerables have begun recording a new full-length album to serve as a follow-up to 2013’s Every Last Stitch. Here’s an excerpt from the update:
“This isn’t a total mystery, I’ve been sharing some updates on Facebook and Twitter, but since we are now at the point where we have the material written, and are now working out the final details for recording, I feel it’s appropriate to make it official for those in the know. We will be recording a follow up to last year’s Every Last Stitch over the coming months. We will be getting together tomorrow evening to hash out the final details. Recording may take place at a few different locations depending on the resources we have at hand. Our goal with this album, as with the last, is to get as high quality of a recording as we can with the limited resources we have. We will also be talking tomorrow about doing a fund raising campaign for the album, which will help us with recording costs, mastering, marketing, pressing, and all of the other high expenses that go along with making an album. There are a number of sites out there that provide this service to bands, and choosing which one to use will likely be the most difficult piece of that equation.
About the album, it is currently untitled, but it will be about 10-13 songs that we have written over the past 6-9 months. I’ve said from the start of this band that I did not want us to stick to a formula for what we do, and I look forward to this album being another step in that direction. While we have generally been considered some form of a punk band (punk rock, pop-punk, post-punk… do any of those even mean anything anymore?), and that will always be somewhere in the roots of what we do, this album will see us stepping out into new territory. Our goal is to have all tracking of the album completed by late June to early July. For those that participate in the fundraising campaign, that should put the album in your hands around late August if everything goes to plan, with a broad release date sometime this fall depending on if we will be doing the full release ourselves or with a partner.”
We’ll be sure to keep you all posted as more details on The Mizzerables’ new record come to light!
For the time being, I highly recommend you head over to Bandcamp and check out their debut full-length Every Last Stitch. It’s free to download but it wouldn’t hurt to kick a few bucks the band’s way.
