'deserves to eat your soul on the long, burning road to Hell' BBC Online

'with this third album they’ve produced something of a masterpiece' The WORD

Tinkering with a winning formula can be a dangerous tactic, but after two critically lauded albums and three years of touring, The Miserable Rich decided that their third album warranted a different approach. So they holed themselves up in a stately home in Norfolk to write and record, bringing in a recording engineer and a drummer. Blickling Hall, the haunted ancestral home of the Boleyn family, provided the setting, and they spent a dark, bitter month isolated from the outside world, putting together the new tracks.

Miss You In The Days adds drums, electric guitar and piano to the band’s more recognisable core of violin, cello and double bass, achieving the desired heavier, more rhythmic sound (yes, now you can dance to The Miserable Rich!), and lyrically the songs play with themes of sex, death and possession.

The resultant album was unveiled at Halloween 2011 to immediate critical acclaim at home, in Europe and across the internet, making several critics’ top tens of the year. It is now available with three extra tracks - band favourites from the sessions that were just not finished in tome for its release.

'Like Beirut hosting a Wuthering Heights theme Halloween party, it’s a record that grows goose-bumps in the night... and so much more. It deserves to make The Miserable Rich leading players in a chamber pop movement in rude health... It deserves a Mercury Prize nod. And it deserves to eat your soul on the long, burning road to Hell.' Mark Beaumont, BBC Online

'TMR produce consistently beautiful, haunting music, and with this third album they’ve produced something of a masterpiece - sounds like the house band for Mary Shelley's hen night' The WORD

'playful, eloquent and sweepingly romantic' The Digital Fix

Track Name: Lighthouse
Lighthouse

Atop the old lighthouse
The lamps no longer shine
The only light a sailor sees
On foggy nights is mine
The last five men that left here
Those brothers I admired
Went off to join the navy
When our dear old ma expired

So I drink to my brothers
Raise a glass and cheer
I drink to their memory
Though I have no body here

I light a candle every night and call your name
I stare out to the sea each night and call you home

And so my brothers left me
Too small to reach the light
Their gunship never stood a chance as it was
Hurled into the night
The boat went down all hands on deck
Or so the locals say
And left alone and cupboard bare, well I soon
Followed the same way
So drink to my brothers
Raise your glass and cheer
Drink to our memory though there’s
Still no body here

I light a candle every night and call your name
I stare out to the sea each night and do the same
I light a candle every night and call your name
I stare out to the sea each night and call you home
Track Name: Fear Of The Dark (Oh! Polyanna!)
Fear of The Dark (Oh! Polyanna!)

Every night when I go to my bed
Sinister thoughts creep into my head
What are those shadows behind the door
What are those noises under the floor
I reach for the light
I shiver with fright
Is this fear of the dark?
Or is somebody there?

I find it hard inside my head
To face the darkness inside my bed
You’ll find it hard inside my bed
Embrace the darkness inside my head
And oh! Polyanna will come to be with me
Oh! Polyanna, sets my spirits free

So she comes kissing me on my head
Slithering softly into my bed
Banishing shadows behind the door
Kicking the blankets onto the floor
She blows out the light
She lights up the night
No more fear of the dark
Not with her body there
Her body’s there……
I find it hard inside my head
To face the darkness inside my bed
You’ll find it hard inside your head
Embrace the darkness inside your bed
And oh! Polyanna will come to be with me
Oh! Polyanna, set her spirit free

Is it fear of the dark?
Or is somebody there?
Track Name: The Telephone
The Telephone

We fell in love
In London in a small theatre
She took the stage
I knew I could not forget her
And so I weighed
The conscience of a heavy debtor
And as it fell apart
I know I broke your heart

Calling your number to ask if I can be forgiven - now

From Canada
Your sister sent an airmail letter
She said you’d passed
Quite peacefully to someplace better
Once more I weighed
The Conscience of the heavy debtor
And as I fell apart
I knew I broke you heart

Calling your number to ask if I can be forgiven
Calling that number to ask if I can be forgiven now
Pick up, Give up, Pick up

We fell in love
I never meant to hurt you Kathy
