MISERY INDEX drummer Kevin Talley (drums, ex-DYING FETUS, SUFFOCATION, M.O.D.) has quit the band and has joined CHIMAIRA. Filling his shoes in MISERY INDEX is Adam Jarvis from the band ALL WILL FALL from St. Louis, MO. "Adam had sent in a audition video many months ago and has been in the band's favor ever since," MISERY INDEX write on their web site. "His first show with the band will be at the world-famous Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany on Aug. 6th."
MISERY INDEX recently finished recording and mixing their new EP, "Dissent" (view cover here). A late August release through the group's own Anarchos Records on 10" vinyl and CD is expected. It contains the "diverse, multi-piece" 13-minute title track and a song called "Defector". Also included will be multiple Quicktime movies of live stuff, and studio and road antics. MISERY INDEX also recently completed work on a DVD, titled "Misery Index DVD Volume 1". The disc features a full live set from Athens, Greece last November, as well as highlights from a few shows in Quebec, and bonus on and off stage footage from the 2003 tours in US and Europe, roughly running about 90 minutes. It can currently be ordered for $10 postpaid from the band's web site.
