NEW SINGLE OUT NOW LISTEN HERE

Japanese superstars MAN WITH A MISSION have announced their brand new EP Dark Crow, due for release on October 23rd.

To mark the announcement the wolf collective have released their brand new single ’86 Missed Calls feat. Patrick Stump’, which features guest vocals from the Fall Out Boy frontman.

The dark electro-tinged rock track has also been selected as the theme song for the new Japanese feature film Three Nobunagas.

MAN WITH A MISSION have been a part of major cultural moments in Japan and beyond. Their songs have sound tracked numerous anime films, TV shows, video games including Street Fighter V and also high profile sporting teams including Japan’s Sunwolves Super Rugby Team and New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Climax last year.

The Dark Crow EP title track has also been selected as the theme song for the latest TV anime series of Vinland Saga. The track starts with bagpipes before breaking into frenzied rock featuring rap and singing in both their native and English tongue.

Elsewhere on the EP is the delicate ballad ‘Reiwa feat. milet’ including beautiful vocals from the Japanese singer-songwriter. A remix from the US producer Slushii of the band’s 2017 hit single ‘My Hero’ closes the EP.

MAN WITH A MISSION are one of the most important and loved rock bands in Asia today. They sell out arenas across their homeland and have also completed sold-out headline tours of the UK, Europe and US. The five-piece dominated a performance at Download Festival this summer, which celebrated the wolf pack’s rabid following in the UK. MAN WITH A MISSION have even more exciting announcements to follow soon.

About Louise Swift

I first went to a gig in 1981, Gillan at Leeds University. I've been a regular gig goer ever since. I haven't kept count of how many gigs I've been to over the intervening years, but it's a lot! My favourite bands are AC/DC then, in no particular order, Anti-Nowhere League, Slaughter and the Dogs, Towers of London and Dirt Box Disco. I tend to like Glam/Punk and rude offensive lyrics, not sure what that says about me but as Animal would say 'So What!' The question was recently put to me - did I write for any online publications? My reply - No, but I'd like to! Planetmosh was suggested and I found myself offering to review Aces High Festival. Easy peasy I thought! Well not quite, if a jobs worth doing it's worth doing well! I had sixteen bands to research. I found I actually enjoyed that and it kept me too busy to be making lunatic comments on Facebook! ;) Then I felt a bit inadequately qualified. I mean, who am I to comment on others, when my musical expertise extends to being able to play a mean Greensleeves on the recorder and a passable Annie's song on the flute! Haven't picked up either instrument for years! What I do have, however, is over 30 years of experience as a gig goer, so I can comment on what I like and what I don't! It's only my opinion and, if I don't like a band it doesn't mean they are bad, just not to my own liking. I admire anyone who has the guts to get up on that stage and have a go!
