THE MISSION sign European deal with Oblivion/SPV

New album feat. the original 1986 line-up to be released in September 2013!

SPV are proud to announce the renewal of their contract with UK legends The Mission. Keeping busy with a worldwide tour in 2013, The Mission have sold over 4 million albums worldwide and just celebrated their 25th anniversary as a band in 2011. Presently, the band is recording their 12th studio album in a secluded residential studio in the heart of the UK. David M Allen (Depeche Mode, The Cure, The Sisters Of Mercy) is producing the album and comments, “It is a privilege and an honor to be working with The Mission on their new album. I’ve had many dealings with the band over the last 30 years that I have known them, and this chance to record with the original members is very special”. But the most exciting part of these plans – the whole process will be filmed for The Mission’s new documentary, which will be released next year.

Says Wayne Hussey: "They say it's better the devil you know... and so... here we are once again, back signed to SPV for Europe (excluding France 'cos France is special, or at least they say they are...) and with a new Mission album in the works scheduled for release later in the year. My take on this is that we have a good relationship with the people at SPV (take a bow, Gero, take a bow) and, at my age when the candles cost more than the cake, I'd rather work with people I know and trust and who have been huge supporters of both myself and the band over the last 12 years or so - rather than try to forge new relationships with strange foreign types... SPV have been incredibly supportive of the band and we have successfully released our last 2 or 3 studio albums and a couple of DVD's with SPV and everyone has been happy. Why spill the apple cart? So, we're here again and again I'm looking forward to visiting the SPV offices in Hannover and going through the cupboards and seeing what is worth stealing. And if we ask for drugs, then laugh, and chop 'em out...Cheers!"

SPV A&R Gero Herrde adds: "All of us at SPV are incredibly proud to work together with The Mission on what will become another, if not THE, masterpiece of this groundbreaking band! If it wasn't for THE MISSION, people would be missing a whole collection of atmospheric gems that no other band would have been able to write. Being proud of their glorious past, yet always forward-looking at the same time, this band has proven at least several hundred times that they are second to none. And yes, I take more than ONE bow, Wayne!"

The new studio album by The Mission will be released in September 2013 via Oblivion/SPV in Europe and via The End Records in the US.
