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.
