Former Misery Signals Vocalist Karl Schubach Addresses His Departure from the Band
Misery Signals confirmed a full-blown reunion with original vocalist Jesse Zaraska in late 2016. Fans were no doubt excited about more shows and new music from the Of Malice and the Magnum Heart lineup, but the circumstances behind the departure of Zaraska's replacement, Karl Schubach, were glossed over — until now.

In a post on his personal Facebook, Schubach addressed how he was kicked out, the inter-band tension that led to that point and his subsequent battles with his mental health. He ultimately ended it with an apology to his former bandmates and allowed himself to shed his resentment and embrace the accomplishments he achieved during his tenure in Misery Signals.

You can read Schubach's statement below.


Schubach joined Misery Signals in 2006 and recorded three albums with them: Mirrors, Controller and Absent Light. The band had re-connected with Zaraska for 2014's "Malice X" tour. That run and the circumstances that led to is initial departure from the band were chronicled in the 2017 documentary Yesterday Was Everything.
