Ian from Rock in Chicago selected us for his top 10 local releases from 2013.
“It’s hard for me to put my thumb on exactly what genre The Mizzerables’ music falls under. Some of their stuff’s pop-punk, other stuff’s punk ‘n’ roll-ish, and they even dabble in a little ska and bluegrass. Their debut full-length “Every Last Stitch” may be one of the strongest debut efforts I’ve ever heard. Most bands sound like they’re still uncertain of how they wanna sound on their debut full-lengths. The Mizzerables, on the other hand, have their shit together and sound like they’ve been playing together for many years.” —Screeching Bottlerocket, Dying Scene (Dec 18, 2013)
I was in Michigan this week, and John Kay sent me an idea for an Undercover tune that I immediately fell in love with. We recorded it at his own Stu Stu Studio over the last two days.
