Stockholm Sweden based band Mister Misery released their debut album ‘Unalive’ on Arising Empire October 4th, 2019. They immediately embarked on a European Tour in October/November and have a follow-up tour starting in February of 2020. Mister Misery combines hard rock, glam, and goth for a very unique, catchy, and engaging sound. I recently came across them on YouTube and instantly fell in love with them and wanted to take an opportunity to introduce them to our readers! So here they are… Please meet Harley and Alex of Mister Misery!

Alison “MetalBabe” Cohen: Hello Alex and Harley. I am a new fan of the band and am really glad to be interviewing you both. Let’s start out by talking about how you formed the band. How did you two connect?

Alex Nine: I had been struggling with finding the right people to play with for quite some years. Prior to Mister Misery, I was a session guitarist for bands like Kobra And The Lotus and Miljenko Matjievic from Steelheart. There were some bands who had reached out to me, asking if I wanted to join them, but their sound was not my cup of tea. In the beginning of 2018, I got a message and a couple of demo songs from Harley out of nowhere and I was completely blown away, knowing that this was the sound and style I loved and wanted to play. The rest is history!

Harley Vendetta: I found out about alex after reaching out to the singer of Crashdiet, Gabriel.
