The Skinny: Guess what’s happening on January 20, 2015? Well, New York City hardcore/metal band Misery Kills (previously known as Misery) are releasing their new full-length album, My Ugly Insides. Guess what’s happening today, January 14th? That’s right, we’ve got the exclusive premiere stream of the band’s entire new album. SICK!

My Ugly Insides, the debut release under the new band name, was engineered and produced by long-time friend Joey Z (Life of Agony, Stereomud), who also produced Misery’s 2008 independent release 15 Years of Aggression, and 2011’s Evil is Crowned. Pre-order the album today!

“Working with Joey Z is just so natural for us now,” says John’s brother/bassist Joe LoCasto. “We’ve done three full-lengths and a few demos with him behind the board now so he’s kind of like a sixth member at this point. Joey knows our band inside and out and knows how to pull the best of that New York attitude out of us.”
