The calendar is quickly filling up with quality new music for the new year, and you can now add Misery Signals to the list of bands eyeing 2019 for a new album.

Bassist Kyle Johnson posted an update on his Instagram page in which he offered a peek inside the studio where the guys have been working on their fifth studio album.

"Great week of writing/polishing/tweaking our new material for LP5. So stoked to share this with the world! #miserysignals #LP5," said the bassist.

Looks like movement toward finishing the follow-up to 2013's Absent Light will start to pick up as the new year begins. While the next album is a priority, the band will break from the studio in March for their next leg of tour dates. After playing a pair of shows in Canada to start the run, they'll venture over to Europe for dates that carry over into April. See all their scheduled stops here.
