Misfits of Sythia formed mid-2012 with the idea of composing music that combined elements of Progressive Rock and Metal with Jazz and Folk music. The ensemble began as a sextet with each of the members meeting the Heathfield High School Music program.
In March and April 2013 the band had their first few public performances, during this time they performed at the Imaginate Festival's Battle of the Bands at which they received the People's Choice award. In the latter part of that year, several members left and the group became a quartet with Kyle Opie (The Cortex Shift) on bass.
In 2014 they released their début EP and performed at events such as The Lounge and ProgFest. During this time they performed alongside other progressive acts such as Glass Indian, Dyssidia and Satan's Cheerleaders. Glen Fernandes then joined in early 2015 on electric violin and vocals.
The band has commenced the recording of a second release which will be their first full length album. The tracks 'Falafel Induced Hiccups' and 'Hip Hoppin' Horns & Djip Djoppin' Djent' have been released as singles in anticipation of the release of the entire album.
