A rock band with absolutely new perspective on the genre. Their compositions are directed to new horizons of the rock scene. If you want to listen something different this is the band you need.
Their music is based on the concept of trying to fusion different genres, different imaginary worlds, different fantasies in every song but keeping their own face. In the lyrics they point out the civilization problems of the society and mental world of the human being.
The band consists of musicians who have been performed in various musical projects and bands across the Europe (mostly in Spain, Hungary, Slovakia, Czech Republic, Netherland, Germany, England) some of them were performed shortly as session musicians in USA. They have previously worked together in various bands and music projects, but the first official set of "Steve Misik & Co." settled in April 2013 during the recording of the songs for the debut album "Schizoemphatic" and creating the promo video for the cover version of Deep Purple's ¨You Keep On Mooving¨.
The band "Steve Misik & Co." is generally of a harder character: rock, funk, blues, metal, boogie, crossover, sometimes with some ethnic or electronic elements,... But it does not limit itself when it comes to the genre.
We grew up listening hard rock, metal bands but we've been influenced by funk, soul, blues, classical music or jazz. "We just wanna play what we want, whenever we feel like it" ̶ this is the motto of this bunch.
Why and how this band name was born? Steve perform a long time period as session musician and singer in various lands around Europe.Therefore it was so difficult to play his own music with the same band members, every musician in different lands had also his own liabilities. So Steve had to play his music with various musicians in different lands, simply it was hard to creata a full-featured band from the start. And so the band-project name was born as Steve Misik & Co.
The way in which we got to the recording of the debut album was very long and difficult. Steve Misik with his first band recorded two studio singles which were aired in several Slovakian radio stations and performed at various festivals in Slovakia and Hungary, beside others "Pepsi-Sziget" in Budapest.
First music clip was recorded at a Slovakian TV channel "VTV" based on Steve Misik's music. The band faced with the biggest misfortune, the health problems of the lead guitarist and co-founder of the band and especially a good friend. Steve Tóth had to be hospitalized. Steve Misik had to play abroad as a session musician in different projects, because of the break and money required for recording and so on. That time Steve Tóth suddenly passed away which painfully affected everybody because of his creative benefit, friendship and enormous love for music (when he found out that he will not be able to play guitar after his heart surgery he fell into a coma and doctors failed to wake him). Steve Misik composed and arranged the song "My waves" based on his riffs and lyrics. They worked together on that song before his death.
The album ¨Schizoemphatic" is dedicated to his memory.
The first single because of the web administrator's mistake was promoted with incorrect band name “Clone co.”, because he entered the name of the single instead the name of the band, so we kicked his ass.
And there was a funny story during recording the first single for our debut album SCHIZOEMPHATIC (whose was aired in some radios in USA, Brasil, South Africa, Canada and Europe) while our sound engineer Rolo ¨helped us¨ with the transmission of equipment and instruments in his car, whose acid from the accumulators has been recently poured from the boot, its seats got soaked up with it and all our pants and assess have nearly been etched too. Basically, we've been recording tracks for the debut album with bare asses.
So the debut album is finally finished and the band hopes that it will delight not only the die-hard fans who remember us from various concerts but also the new listeners.
