Athens-based Misuse were formed in 2001. Soon after, they record their first demo and start performing live in various venues around Greece. In 2007, after a few line-up changes, the band produces its first (self-titled) studio album. The debut is mainly rooted to guitar driven rock forms, alongside piano/keys and string arrangements. It gets released in March 2008 by Puzzlemusik Records and Spinalonga Records,
and is very well received by both critics and fans.
In the following months the band performs live around Greece, along many big names of the worldwide post-rock scene such as Mogwai, who personally keep choosing the band for opening their shows in Greece, Silver Mount Zion, Crippled Black Phoenix, Piano Magic and others, getting very positive reviews, critical acclaim in the local press and gaining new fans.
In their shows they have often collaborated with visual artists such as Hope, some tracks have been choreographed and others have been featured in shows and documentaries in Greek Television.
Mid 2011 finds the band in the studio producing their second album ("April") which gets released in November of the same year.
The acquirement and addition of new equipment, mostly modern electronic devices (such as IOS applications,samplers and sequencers), leads the band to new ways of composing, experimenting with new textures and styles, thus to a new sound approach.
Despite the depressing and uncertain atmosphere in Greece,Misuse always harbor the will to remain creative, influenced but not damaged, ready to communicate their work abroad, through live shows and releases.
