Short album with most songs in the 2 to 2 1/2 minute range...but what a wallop the 11 tracks deliver. Think of a lighter Rancid infused with some of The Clash sensibilities. Punchy and deep bass lines parade along with some sharp guitar work. Throw in some gang vocal choruses and you have a fun 25 minute rock/punk ride. Check out the tracks Fourteen, Pick it Back up and Every Last Stitch to get the flavor of The Mizzerables.
Favorite track: Fourteen.
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.

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
