The Mission UK return with a new album Another Fall From Grace on September 30th. The record was produced by Wayne Hussey and features guest vocals from Martin Gore, Gary Numan, and Ville Valo among others. According to Hussey, the record is similar to his classic work and has a dark 1985 vibe:
"For me, this new Mission album is the long lost missing link between the Sisters Of Mercy’s First & Last & Always and The Mission’s God’s Own Medicine, both albums of course that I was heavily involved in making. I set out this time with the intention of making an album that sounds like 1985."
He also reveals the torment and turmoil he went through while creating the record:
"This is a dark album although I didn’t set out with that intention, it’s just the way things unfolded. I know I did go a little crazy and even a little paranoid during the recording of this album, certainly my mental, physical, emotional, and spiritual well being all suffered during the course of it...So much of this was done in isolation – from the world, from my family, from my friends, and even from my band mates. I can’t say it’s an album I enjoyed making but it is an album I needed to make."
Another Fall From Grace will be released on CD, 180 gm vinyl, and digital download. A limited edition deluxe double CD & DVD is also available while supplies last. Check out the options and pre-order here.
