03. The Carrion Call

08. Plague Of Objects
09. You Lose

The band will also record a bonus song for the Japanese edition of the album.
MISERY INDEX's Jason Netherton previously stated about the upcoming CD, "The thread that binds several songs lyrically surrounds ideas of hidden history, how we interpret our nation, and our idea of who we are culturally and collectively, as it is generally handed down to us in terms of icons, wars, struggles and triumph."
MISERY INDEX will embark on a tour of Australia and New Zealand this spring. The trek will kick off in early April and will also include DECAPITATED, PSYCROPTIC, and ORIGIN.
