Big in Japan is an understatement!
Man With A Mission are superstars in Japan. They sell out arena shows and they even made global history by being the first band ever to top a national chart with a B-Sides album. In fact, they’re one of the biggest rock bands throughout Asia right now.
Four songs from their brand new album have already had cultural impact. Merry Go Round is the opening theme for TV anime My Hero Academia, and Remember Me is the main theme for the TV drama Radiation House II. Meanwhile, Change The World was the 2020 NHK soccer theme song. Also, Into The Deep was the theme song for the Japanese edition of Godzilla vs Kong.
Whatsmore, their new song 86 Missed Calls features Patrick Stump from Fall Out Boy! Check out this video to get a sense of the size of the crowds that love this band.
Man With A Mission released three albums in 2020 to commemorate their 10th anniversary; MAN WITH A “BEST” MISSION, MAN WITH A “REMIX” MISSION and MAN WITH A “B-SIDES & COVERS” MISSION. Each of them topped the Japanese album chart.
They were all set to go into the studio to record a double album next. However, when the pandemic slowed things down, they decided to split the releases up so as not to disappoint their fans with an undue delay.
Break and Cross the Walls I is out on Sony Music digitally now, and it will get an international physical release on January 28, 2022. The second album will follow in March 2022.
