(past and present)
Post-hardcore act Misery Signals blend math rock tropes like tricky time signature shifts and twiddly guitar parts with the strained aggression and sore throat vocals of screamo, creating a sound with more emotional heft than the former yet that is also less monochromatic than the latter. Misery Signals formed in Madison, WI, in 2003, featuring members of a number of regional hardcore bands. Singer Jesse Zaraska had the highest profile, having worked with 7 Angels, 7 Plagues and the Canadian hardcore act Compromise, which had broken up in 2002 following the death of two of its members in a car accident. Guitarist Jeff Aust had been in Hamartia, while guitarist Ryan Morgan, bassist Kyle Johnson, and drummer Branden Morgan (Ryan’s brother) filled out the lineup. Following the band’s self-titled six track EP, released in 2003, Aust was replaced by new guitarist Stuart Ross.
