MAN WITH A MISSION Set To Release 'When My Devil Rises' 6/10
Spirited wolf men Man With A Mission will release their second EP, When My Devil Rises, on June 10, 2014 via SONY/RED and the band has confirmed additional dates for their upcoming summer U.S. tour. The run starts on June 18 in New York and will take them across the States, hitting Philadelphia, Cleveland, St. Louis, Denver, San Francisco, LA and more, with two additional dates added in Lancaster on June 21 and Anaheim on July 12. The band will also be supporting their critically acclaimed March release, Don't Feel The Distance EP. A full list of tour dates can be found below, with more dates to be added soon.
The band recently kicked off their "http://studentswithamission.net " contest in over 4,500 high schools across the country. The Mission is to help us find out more about this Wolf Pack of amazing creatures that disarm us and attack with sonic rage. Are they wolves? Are they human? Are they evil? Are they good? YOU tell US by finishing their story and deciding their fate. Entries can be essays, haikus, poetry, video, art-or any other medium that fully unleashes the wolf within. Prizes from SONY electronics include a Sony Vaio Tap 21, a high definition video camera, an Xperia Z1S waterproof phone, a camera, headphones, signed merch and more. More information can be found at the newly designed MWAM website and http://studentswithamission.net.
The upcoming U.S. dates will be the band's first tour here, but they did make their way Stateside in 2013 for two showcases at The Roxy in Los Angeles and Highline Ballroom in New York, fascinating everyone in attendance. "These wolf-men took merely an instant to capture the undivided attention of everyone present inside this venue," recognized Metal Assault. Buzzfeed noted, "They put on an energetic live show and were unflappable joyous showmen," and Examiner agreed, "Man With A Mission has solid musical chops. These guys may be just three years old, but their skills reveal the dedication of a lifetime."
Together, Tokyo Tanaka (Vocals), Spear Rib (drums) Jean-Ken Johnny (Vocals/ Guitar/Rap), DJ Santa Monica (DJ/Sampling) and Kamikaze Boy (Bass//BV's) are Man With A Mission.
