Misery Signals documentary set for release, trailer online

Tuesday, May 30, 2017 10:03 AM PT


Official press release:

Over the last decade influential hardcore band Misery Signals has undergone overwhelming changes involving the departure of their founding singer and infighting that nearly left the band in complete shambles. In a new documentary, directed by Matthew Mixon, titled Yesterday Was Everything, the band takes viewers on an intimate journey of reconciliation as they find healing in the present by confronting the demons of their past. The documentary will be available on June 30th at iTunes, Google Play and Amazon. The band will be doing an in-theater screening of the documentary in Edmonton, AB on June 20th (7:00pm at Metro Cinema at the Garneau, 8712 109th Street, Edmonton AB) with partial proceeds being donated to Mothers Against Drunk Driving.

Filmed during Misery Signals 2014 tour in celebration of the 10th anniversary of their coveted album, Of Malice and the Magnum Heart, Yesterday Was Everything follows the band as they reunite with their former vocalist for the first time since his unceremonious ousting a decade prior. The film explores the fatal tragedy that brought the band together and follows their journey from Vancouver to Toronto as they face old ghosts and attempt to reconcile the past.

"Yesterday Was Everything provides a glimpse into a very tumultuous period in our development as young men, friends and musicians. Without the ups and downs of those formative years it's hard to say where we'd all be today. I believe this film offers fans of the band intimate information to questions that have otherwise gone unanswered. It allows insight into the story of Compromise; a tragedy that forever changed the trajectory of our lives." - Stuart Ross (Guitar)

"Matthew Mixon does a fantastic job of portraying the intensity that lies within the story. The good alongside the bad, the uncomfortable moments, the love shared between the five of us that extends to all the friends and fans we have made over the last decade, and the ability to come out of it still being able to call each other friends. I can't wait for the world to experience it." - Kyle Johnson (Bass)

"Mixon's film plays like a love letter to the independent music experience. You get a seat right there in the tour van as we grapple with the challenges of the road and attempt to create authentic music together. For those outside of the band's audience "YWE" allows an inside look at a scene they might be unaware of. It strikes me that my bandmates and the others in the film bear little resemblance to the "metalhead" archetype. And you do get an intimate look at us, as scary as that is, you get 3 dimensions that include our failings and flaws. But that's what I think sets the film apart from other music documentaries I've seen. There's a vulnerability that anyone can relate to, and I think everyone walks away with a better understanding. Especially us." - Ryan Morgan (guitar)

One of your favorite bands for over a decade. Yeah right.
Misery Signals debut was pretty decent. But I recorded their first demo. I was one the first ones to find them.
I still have the email:
"We love you LK. It is always a pleasure to be in your company and your beautiful studio"
I was the first to find them.

I am not a gay. I refuse to ever shut up. I found many of the bands you revere. And recorded them.
As for this band: No one seems to know where those tapes are unfortunately. The song fckin ripped too. Lit tbh.
