Still working on that hot first release.


Feeling a bit camera shy


The Missendens is that rarest of creatures: a kick ass band of like minded souls who have all earned their stripes the hard way, treading the boards at countless gigs in countless bands, who have come together to bring songs of undeniable importance to all who will listen.

 Like a lot of great music, The Missendens began with a lone songwriter strumming away - forgoing sleep, pouring years of passion, life's lessons, successes and failures into chords, melodies and lyrics with true meaning.

 Very quickly it became evident that the bagful of songs Craig Hansen had been working on were sonically too big to be done justice by one man.

 Friends were called, classified ads were placed, and eventually a band of music obsessed ‘brothers’ who were born to play was formed. Not for lure of money and not to chase some elusive dream, but purely for the love of 'the song' and the thrill of the indescribable, spine tingling power of a band in step with each other.

 Long time friend and multi instrumentalist Adam Griffiths was added on bass, with Adam's brother-in-law Gerry Ford ducking and weaving between layered vocal lines and guitar hooks with a unique energy on rhythm guitar.

 Sharing drum duties on the recording of the forthcoming self titled album are Keigo Endo, a phenomenally talented drummer from Japan with a million hits on his youtube drumming videos, and Sydney based Argentinean Alejo Alvarez, who provides the kind of drums that only a man with an intricate knowledge of the history of music can. Alejo has joined the band as permanent live drummer.
