Japanese superstars MAN WITH A MISSION have announced their new album Chasing the Horizon, due for physical release on August 10th via Century Media. The album is the wolf collective’s fifth in their native Japan, but their first brand new album to be released worldwide.
‘Take Me Under’ is a blistering anthem combining the wolf collective’s exciting blend of driving rock and bright electronics, and is also the theme to the new adaption of the film Inuyashiki. The video sees the band battling the oppressive pigs, with shots of the band performing the track amid city lights cut with intense fight scenes.
‘Winding Road’ finds the band taking a more melodic tip with a feel-good rock song. The EP also features the previously released singles ‘The Anthem’, a beautiful slice of electronica whose video has clocked up well over half a million plays in a week. The EP closes with the Jagz Kooner remix of the band’s huge anthem ‘Dead End in Tokyo’, which has had over 7 million views on the single’s official video.
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 also completed sold out headline tours of the UK, Europe and US last year.
The five-piece played their latest sold-out headline London show this year to an ecstatic crowd at The Dome, and also toured the UK with Don Broco. MAN WITH A MISSION have just been announced to play Reading & Leeds Festival this summer.
Chasing the Horizon delivers an exciting blend of feral rock energy mixed with rap and electronics. The album features the previously released singles ‘Take Me Under’, ‘Winding Road’, ‘Freak It! feat. TOKYO SKA PARADISE ORCHESTRA’, ‘My Hero’, ‘Dead End In Tokyo’, ‘Find You’ and ‘Dog Days’, which have clocked up multi-million streams across YouTube and Spotify. The global physical edition will also include special bonus tracks to be announced soon.
