The Misery Science was originally formed in 2006 by Christian Dyer (Lead vocals, guitar) and Andy Attebery (Bassist, backup vocals). Although the infant band only played one acoustic show as a two piece, the response was overwhelmingly positive and, surprisingly, created a number of fans before even adding a full lineup. The band expanded considerably shortly thereafter, adding Eric Olson (Drums, backup vocals), Sean-Michael Riley (Keyboards, Samples), and Erich Goebel (Lead guitar); each bringing their own extensive amount of experience, talent, and ideas to the growing project. With a wide variety of musical influences, ranging wildly from classical to heavy metal, each song began to take on it's own presence, direction, and message. Each song was so different, in fact, that a large number of musical comparisons to other famous bands invariably followed: The Killers, Coldplay, Foo Fighters, The Smashing Pumpkins, The Cure, and Cracker, just to name a few. In 2008, the band released their first self titled album with radio hits "Keying Cars", "Again", and "Waking Up", and were featured on PDX49 as a promotion for several of their shows. Since then, The Misery Science has been touring up and down the West coast, adding fans wherever they go and working on new material and new ideas in the tumult. With eyes on the future and looking to expand even further than the Northwest, there's no telling where they may end up.
