I absolutely love when I discover new bands. Most of the time they aren’t new bands, they’re just new to me. Such is the case with a Terror EBM band out of Orlando, Florida, called MissFit Toys.
I discovered them a few weeks ago, when they went on an east coast tour opening for Hocico. It’s been a long while since I’ve been able to go to an EBM show, mostly focused on traveling for bands like AFI and Motionless in White. I knew I wouldn’t be able to get time off of work to travel, so I let it go. Which in the end, I ended up getting Corona, so I wouldn’t have been going anywhere fast! Just bad timing!
I was listening to the bands that were on the tour, such as Absynthe of Faith (who I’m familiar with) and fell in love with MissFit Toys. I love this kind of music, so why I didn’t know who were sooner, I don’t know. But now, I’m kinda obsessed with them and totally kicking myself that I couldn’t go to the Pittsburgh or Newark show.
Apparently, they formed around 2007, but they didn’t start playing shows until 2011. Their earliest release on Spotify is 2018. I know they have opened for Psyclon Nine, Skold, and Grendel. I don’t know why I never paid attention to them in the past and wish I had. I cannot wait to be dancing to them in the club. I hear elements of Skinny Puppy in some of their songs, which being the industrial girl that I am, I absolutely love it, especially the vocals. I will easily lose myself dancing to them all night.
I will not be missing them the next time they go on tour!
Check them out: MissFit Toys
P.S. At some point, I will write a music review. I don’t really know what the point was of this post, just to share that I found a new band that I love :p
