The band teased their upcoming album Misses on New Noise Magazine[2] and other outlets,[3][4][5] Matthew talked about the album's creation and the band's history on Substream Magazine stating “After playing music together for over 10 years I feel like we finally have something that’s truly representative of us. Something that captures our live sound…this is definitely the record I’ve wanted us to release for a long time.”[6] The album was being worked along Kevin Bernsten (Skeletonwitch, Walk The Plank, and Outer Heaven) at Developing Nations and Brad Boatright to master the album at Audiosiege.

The band reverted their name back to My America Is Watching Tigers Die and on September 30, 2016, they'll released their last studio album Misses.
