Feeding my Starvation out 9th July 2021




Band of Missfits have gone from strength to strength since their Western Australian Music award nomination in 2018 for the title track from their acclaimed EP ‘Higher Passage’.  Since then the Perth four-piece have released their long awaited single ‘Crickets’ in November 2020, which also helped earn them another WAM nomination, this time for Most Popular Act of 2020.

‘Feeding My Starvation’ packs a massive punch, with catchy vocal melodies, fat riffs, a killer guitar solo and an incredible performance from front woman Kym Redmond.  With her amazing vocal range & power adding to their musical strengths, Band of Missfits have pulled together once again to display their abilities as one of Perth’s finest, delivering a very unique sound which rivals some of the finest international acts around.

About The Band

Singer /songwriter ‘Redmond’ credits hard work, heartbreak, perseverance and passion among the strong attributes to her songwriting.  Redmond’s heartfelt lyrical content, driven by her powerhouse voice is felt both on & off the stage.  Since the release of their last single ‘Crickets’, Band of Missfits have gained huge momentum online, with a regular flow of listeners & positive comments on Soundcloud.  Spotify streams and hits on the band’s Instagram page have also dramatically increased as the band head down the edgier side of rock & grunge.

“We were wanting to head down a heavier road, so when our lead guitarist Jake Bignell joined the line-up, it was just a natural progression,” says the band.

Despite having shared stages across the state with some of the best up & coming bands Western Australia has to offer, the band now look interstate & overseas as they plan to take their music to bigger & broader crowds.

“Aiming for bigger support slots is definitely on the agenda from here!” says the band.

Band of Missfits Biography

When Perth rock outfit Band Of Missfits were a finalist for ‘Most Popular New Act’ at the 2018 WAM Awards, it was the culmination of a lot of hard work through three years of writing, recording and the kind of gigging schedule that truly defines a real rock’n’roll band.
The road began when singer/songwriter/guitarist, Kym Redmond, moved from Tom Price to Perth with plenty to write about. At this point she had already appeared on WAM’s Sounds Of Tom Price compilation, which is where she met producer, Sean Lillico, who would soon factor again into her musical path.
Redmond began performing as a solo artist mainly around the Hills area and eventually released the Lillico-produced EP, What’s Left Behind, in 2015 honouring her late brother. By 2016 Redmond craved the group energy of playing more gigs with a band dynamic and a harder rockin’ edge than her acoustically-driven pop EP. Via wanted-ads she teamed up with drummer Paul Smith and original bassist Sam Paterniti and started gigging throughout Perth and soon after their Debut Ep followed. ‘Into the Storm’ The band were keen to head into a heavier direction than their Debut ep, which they did well and truly on the Lillico-produced follow-up release, 2018’s Higher Passage.
What unites the songs on these two diverse EP releases is Redmond’s openness as a songwriter and the themes that fascinate her. On a five-track EP where four songs had the dynamics to be considered singles, Nothing At All earned its guernsey and says much of Redmond’s overall songwriting approach.
“As soon as I wrote it, I had a good feeling about it,” she says. “It came together pretty quickly, lyrically and musically. The good one's write themselves fairly quickly...  Sometimes i don't get off my chest what I'm writing about in one song and without realising it, it's carried through to the next one.
2020 is an all-new chapter as they release their 3rd Ep which will be recorded in March at Furreal Studio in Yallingup with Lillico once again heading production.
There’s plenty of places to take that massive sound and drive with Lee Matheson on Bass guitar and backing vocals, the Incredible Jake Bignell on Lead guitar (Jackson Koke, Maddcatz) and founding members Paul Smith on Drums & Kym Redmond on vocals and Rhythm guitar.
