Hitting the Pavement: Misery Index

MISERY INDEX: Talks Washington Capitols Playoffs; Announce More Canadian Dates + Japan

Baltimore, MD’s MISERY INDEX, who have a known love for their regional hockey team the Washington Capitols, recently spoke with the Washington Post Express about “The Caps” as they head into the NHL playoffs tonight against the NY Rangers. The video interview was taped last night after MISERY INDEX’s performance at the Rock’n’Roll Hotel in DC and can be viewed now at ExpressNightOut.com.

MISERY INDEX are playing a handful of shows on the east coast with LANDMINE MARATHON before they embark on a month-long cross-Canada headlining tour starting April 24th. Immediately following their Canadian tour, MISERY INDEX will spend a week with ROTTEN SOUND and MARUTA in between performances at the Auditory Assault and Maryland Deathfests. MISERY INDEX will then head to Japan with CANNIBAL CORPSE and THE FACELESS in early June, backed by a number of European open-air festivals in the summer months. A complete listing of confirmed MISERY INDEX tour dates can be found below with more to be announced soon.

MISERY INDEX have been touring almost non-stop since the release of Traitors last September. The band has recently premiered the first video from Traitors, for title-track “Traitors”, online now at this location. The “Traitors” video was shot in Philadelphia, PA with director David Brodsky for My Good Eye.

Updated MISERY INDEX news and tour information will be made available at the Relapse Records website: RELAPSE.com, the MISERY INDEX website: MISERYINDEX.com and MySpace: MySpace.com/MiseryIndex.
