about

Every Last Stitch, the debut album from The Mizzerables', is an 11 song artillery shot, whistling by your ear and blowing you off of your feet. Part therapy session, part declaration of independence, The Mizzerables tell you all what it's like to love, long and learn life's lessons the hard way.

From the single, "Bottoms Up" to more aggressive tracks like "Everything I Need," "Rise With Me," and "Every Last Stitch" through the infectious hooks on tracks "Fourteen," "Beauty Queen," "Fatal Valentine" and "Scarlett Letters," Every Last Stitch gives you everything punk and rock fans could ever want.

The single, "Bottoms Up," will be released July 9th on iTunes, Amazon, and at the band's bandcamp page, and the accompanying video will be out on BlankTV (dategoeshere). The full album will be available on iTunes, Amazon, and at the band's bandcamp page on July 23rd. CD & Vinyl release dates will be forthcoming.

The Mizzerables will be premiering the video at the Whoapacolypse show July 13 at the Token Lounge in Westland, MI. The digital album release show will be on Thursday, July 25th at Liars Club in Chicago, IL.

The bulk of the album was engineered and mixed by Adam Instefjord, who has also worked with Lights Alive... (etc waiting for list) at the band's Chicago studio. The final track, "Scarlet Letters," was engineered and mixed by Jeff Dean at Million Yen Studios. Jeff has worked on albums from The Bomb, Dead Ending, Samiam, and more. The album was mastered by Doug McBride at Gravity Studios, where he has worked with acts such as Veruca Salt and Smashing Pumpkins.

Music like this, by artists like these, is the glue of the world. It's what holds it all together. Without this, life would be meaningless. These are the kinds of tunes that will make you want to run up on the roof and sing them at the top of your lungs for everyone to hear. So check them out, you won't be sorry.

about

The Mizzerables Chicago, Illinois

Mixing gritty vocals and melodic-pop sensibility with a bit of an aggressive streak, the Mizzerables are the kind of punk band that makes you want to put your arm around your buddy's shoulders, raise your beer and sing at the top of your lungs. It's good time rock-and-roll meets pop punk. ... more

Track Name: Pick it Back Up
i've been bruised and battered more than a few times
but i can't say i didn't commit no crimes
after so long filled with anger and hate ???
she came along, brought me back from hell

well it wasn't easy, i put up a good fight
nobody could tell me that i wasn't right
i burned all the bridges, and torched the town
buried myself and wrapped my heart in a shell

there were times i thought, i'd never come back
headed west wolverine, my bags were packed
drinking my pay, and wasting my days
like Ness said, I had some evil ways

spending nights, amongst the tired and lonely
there's a side of me for your eyes only
somewhere across town, where the children play
they say we're down for the count, it's the end of our days

pick it back up now slow and steady
she's been here all along standing ready?
and death may come, and memories fade
but life goes on so pick it back up now

sometimes at night, i drive for hours
amongst the fallen homes and shining towers
the smell of petrol, and the stains of industry
reminiscent signs of recent captivity

and through it all, the blood sweat and tears
and the ones who dare stand against brotherhood
she'll always be here till the very last breath
reminding us all of what once was good

pick it back up now slow and steady
she's been here all along standing ready
and death may come, for one and all
but life goes on so pick it back up now
Track Name: Short One
waiting watching look it's four o'clock
haven't finished packing my last suitcase
well now isn't this typical of me to run away
when i just found something that's worth sticking round for

twenty minutes and i'll be on that train
going nowhere like a bat outa hell
well now isn't this typical of me to run away
when i just found something that's worth sticking round for

hey
hey
hey

i can't see two feet in front of me
can't trust anyone when i finally found happiness

well now isn't this typical of me to run away
when i just found something that's worth sticking round for
when i just found something that's worth sticking round for

hey
Track Name: One More Day
got a bag full of tricks
and some blood on my hands
and i’ll never be able to wash it away

some skeletons in my closet
and a troubled youth
and i can tell you now that it’s all here to stay

all the cards are on the table
and this ain’t no place for the faithful
and it wasn’t such a bad april

got some nasty habits
and a bad attitude
won’t you stick around for just one more day

all the cards are on the table
and this ain’t no place for the faithful
and it wasn’t such a bad april

got some nasty habits
and a bad attitude
won’t you stick around for just one more day
won’t you stick around for just one more day
won’t you stick around for just one more day
Track Name: Fourteen
fourteen was so much easier
no responsibilities to worry about
just go outside and smoke another cigarette
with no care at all

woke up for work at the crack of dawn
couldn’t sleep a wink at all last night
the boss is calling the kettles boiling
looks like i fucked it up again

the phone didn’t ring for me at all today
turn on the tv watch my brain rot away
sick of dreaming sick of drinking
i need something to ease my mind

growing up choosing standing down
from a lack of faith in a childhood dream
Track Name: Beauty Queen
hey there beauty queen it's been so long
where did all the years go and what went wrong
did he say it wouldn't ever happen again

after all this time
you'd think we'd know better now
gotta get it right
gotta get it right

hey there old friend sing me a sad song
another pink slip and a shake so long
entrapped and drowning in a debt fueled bane

after all this time
you'd think we'd know better now
gotta get it right
gotta get it right

hey there beauty queen it's been so long
where did all the years go and what went wrong
we're all ensnared by someone else's domain

after all this time
you'd think we'd know better now
gotta get it right
gotta get it right

gotta get it right
gotta get it right
gotta get it right
gotta get it right

gotta get it right
(na na na na na na na)
gotta get it right
(na na na na na na na)
gotta get it right
(na na na na na na na na na)
Track Name: Bottoms Up
staring at the bottom of another glass
wishing there was someone here to talk to
but they got better things to do
than hear about the shit that happened years ago

she came walking back through that door
makes me wonder why it had to be today
but she's got better things to do
than think about shit that happened years ago

i'd like to tear the thoughts from my head
light a fuse and blow 'em all to hell
cause this time i might not make it back
it's bottoms up to the last rebel without a cause
Track Name: Everything I Need
there's some blood running down my thigh
with no escape no end in sight
all i'm seeing is black and blue

my legs they are numb
and i'm short of breath someone's
coming round next round is due

some call this heaven some call it hell
i call it everything i need

my head is pounding
the sound is stinging and
all i’m seeing is black and blue

some call this heaven some call it hell
i call it everything i need
some call this heaven some call it hell
i call it everything i need

there's some blood running down my thigh
there's no escape no end in sight
all i'm seeing is black and blue
all i'm seeing is black and blue
all i'm seeing is black and blue
Track Name: Every Last Stitch
I’ve been played for a fool before
Too many times all by my own self
Wasting days along the river shore
“You’ve got it all figured out, whiskey for your health”

Take me, undo me, down to every last stitch
Break me, dissect me, slowly brick by brick
I’ve been running out, all these years
now I’m tired of walking alone

Spending nights along the avenue
Thinking I’m the one who’s throwing caution to the wind
Alibi’s you know I’ve got a few
Easier in blackouts, I blame it on the bathtub gin

free me, undo me, down to every last stitch
Break me, dissect me, slowly brick by brick
I’ve been running out, all these years
now I’m tired of walking alone

fill these lungs and raise these bones
don’t count me down or out i’m tired of walking alone

free me, undo me, down to every last stitch
Break me, dissect me, slowly brick by brick
I’ve been running out, all these years
now I’m tired of walking alone
Track Name: Fatal Valentine
she's a little unstable to say the least
a rabid beast cut loose from the leash
but she'll love your

tied up in chains left for dead in rain
you played a game outside your domain
another victim of the fatal valentine

nowhere to run. you came here all alone.
the stench of your own dung. you know you’re on your own.

the howls and screams and pains from her bite
tear through the night like angels in flight
cut right through you

tied up in chains left for dead in rain
you played a game outside your domain
another victim of the fatal valentine

tied up in chains left for dead in rain
she's like a drug injected straight in your vein
another victim of the fatal valentine
Track Name: Rise With Me
calling all the disenchanted
i'm here to tell you i'm not ok
calling all forgotten children
stand up declare yourselves and say

rise with me
rise with me
rise with me

i am a battering ram
here to take away your sympathy
for narrow-minded masterminds
and charge up a mutiny

rise with me
rise with me
rise with me
Track Name: Scarlet Letters
if you shined a light on me
you could see
all the shadows that hide behind

as the days fade to night
they incite
after all that's their frame of mind

let me invite take you out to sea
where i'm free
far from shore and sanctuary

shake and wake your base instincts
so distinct

don't mistake the vows i break
the scarlet letters that i forsake
for anymore than my own war
fought within as i awake

come along with me
and soon we’ll be
off swimming with the fish in lake erie
