ex-Misery Signals vocalist releases first novel

Friday, July 11, 2014 1:08 PM PT


Former Misery Signals frontman Jesse Zaraska has just released his first novel, titled Old Ghosts. Here's what Zaraska told us about it:

"The novel is called Old Ghosts. It is a gothic thriller/western set around the turn of the last century. The works can be found online through Kindle, Kobo, and most e-readers. Hard copies can be ordered through Amazon Createspace and can also be purchased this summer on the Misery Signals Malice X tour."

As mentioned, Zaraska will be touring with Misery Signals this summer as the band celebrates the tenth anniversary of their Of Malice And The Magnum Heart album, on which Zaraska sang.

For more information, head to Zaraska's website.

Im from the same state as these gays. Why not write a meaningful book like one about how A band playing any sort of heavy music won't make it anywhere. And then sell at Hot Topic so heavy music will no longer be made.

What are you talking about. Do you not know the history of ferret records. I guess kills witch engage, every time I die isn't making it far. What is your measurement for success. If they aren't as big as Metallica you haven't made it far.

Time to drop some knowledge. Killswitch, ETID the success of those bands was really flukey. They're horrible and besides they each released what, 1 record with ferret? If they hadn't jumped ship yes all the members of those bands would still be hipsters, only difference they would hot topic employees folding theyre own shirts into the clearance stacks.

Some metalcore vocalist from the early 2000's writes book. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

Wake me up when Gunn's book comes out.

Well, Jesse has a huge home in Milwaukee from $$ he made in Misery Signals so he can now finish his career there as an author even though he doesn't need the $$ this book will likely net him $10K or so. It is a smart move on his part.

The man has been in one of the most accomplished and influential metal/hardcore bands of all time, and now teaches high school English while still being able to do a reunion tour and write a book. 99% of lambgoat comments are made between visits to pornhub
