It looks like metalcore favorites Misery Signals are set to release their first album in seven years.

In an interview with the Oblivious Maximus podcast, guitarist Stu Ross stated that a new record "will be out this year no matter what," and that he is currently waiting to hear the final mixes of the new songs.

Ross further outlined that Misery Signals "tracked 13 songs: Two of them are gonna be on a split with a couple of other cool bands, and then we're gonna do the full-length."

In addition, Ross also confirmed that a new Comeback Kid album is in the works, as well as Misery Signals' intentions to tour as much as possible once the restrictions surrounding coronavirus pandemic are lifted.

Note To Scene understands that Devin Townsend produced and recorded the vocals for the new Misery Signals album with frontman Jesse Zaraska, who recently featured on "Hellbent Gate," the latest single from Canadian punks Trench.

Misery Signals were forced to cancel an April tour with Darkest Hour and Sect earlier in the year because of the coronavirus outbreak. The band were also required to postpone their May headline run with End and Neck of the Woods, but these dates have been rescheduled for November.

Absent Light, Misery Signals' last album, came out in 2013. Prior to that the Wisconsin-formed band released three full-length records: 2004 debut Of Malice and the Magnum Heart, 2006's Mirrors and 2008's Controller.

Like the upcoming LP, Of Malice and the Magnum Heart and Controller both featured production collaborations with Devin Townsend.
