Modern Misery is an Emo Power Pop project from Nashville, Tennessee. The project came to light in 2016, when musician Zakk Potter decided to take on writing music for the first time. In 2021, Longtime friend and partner Molly Adams joined the band. The band writes catchy Power Pop songs with forthright and introspective lyrics.

In May 2021, Modern Misery released “May 4th (Acoustic)” as a pre-release to the debut single “May 4th“. Follow up single “before i go” was released in August 2021 alongside “Split“, an EP featuring Double A-Sides from Chrundle The Great, Modern Misery & TheConverseKid.
