Here is our tribute to one of my favorite bands and one of my favorite songs from the ’90s. I stepped out from behind the drum kit for this one and sang lead in this minimalistic cover of Disarm by the Smashing Pumpkins.

Still Uneasy

According to Wikipedia, Pegboy has a cult following, so I guess that makes us members of a cult… though I’d like to pass on the kool-aid.

Every Last Stitch

Every Last Stitch, the debut album from The Mizzerables’, is an 11 song artillery shot, whistling by your ear and blowing you off of your feet. Part therapy session, part declaration of independence, The Mizzerables tell you all what it’s like to love, long and learn life’s lessons the hard way.

From the single, “Bottoms Up” to more aggressive tracks like “Everything I Need,” “Rise With Me,” and “Every Last Stitch” through the infectious hooks on tracks “Fourteen,” “Beauty Queen,” “Fatal Valentine” and “Scarlett Letters,” Every Last Stitch gives you everything punk and rock fans could ever want.

The single, “Bottoms Up,” will be released July 9th on iTunes, Amazon, and at the band’s bandcamp page, and the accompanying video will be out on BlankTV (dategoeshere). The full album will be available on iTunes, Amazon, and at the band’s bandcamp page on July 23rd. CD & Vinyl release dates will be forthcoming.

The Mizzerables will be premiering the video at the Whoapacolypse show July 13 at the Token Lounge in Westland, MI. The digital album release show will be on Thursday, July 25th at Liars Club in Chicago, IL.

The bulk of the album was engineered and mixed by Adam Instefjord, who has also worked with Lights Alive… (etc waiting for list) at the band’s Chicago studio. The final track, “Scarlet Letters,” was engineered and mixed by Jeff Dean at Million Yen Studios. Jeff has worked on albums from The Bomb, Dead Ending, Samiam, and more. The album was mastered by Doug McBride at Gravity Studios, where he has worked with acts such as Veruca Salt and Smashing Pumpkins.

Music like this, by artists like these, is the glue of the world. It’s what holds it all together. Without this, life would be meaningless. These are the kinds of tunes that will make you want to run up on the roof and sing them at the top of your lungs for everyone to hear. So check them out, you won’t be sorry.
