Ultimate life form rock band MAN WITH A MISSION have announced a return to London for their second ever UK headline performance as part of their 2017 Dead End In Tokyo European Tour. The show takes place on 22nd June at The Underworld in Camden, London.
Half-man, half-wolf band MAN WITH A MISSION thawed out of icy coffins in 2010 and tore through Japan with a feral rock ‘n’ roll energy on par with that of Godzilla. Over the course of four albums, most recently 2016’s The World’s On Fire, the band became an international phenomenon in their own right.
Blending rock, punk, pop and dance paired with a unique live show, the band look to take the UK by storm once more following their debut UK performance at 2015’s Download Festival, and first ever London headline show at Islington’s O2 Academy. This special intimate show at Camden’s Underworld is not to be missed.
Earlier this year, MAN WITH A MISSION ticked off another first with the release of their first global single “Dead End In Tokyo”, co-written and produced by Fall Out Boy’s Patrick Stump. The track confidently struts along on an arena-ready groove and thick guitars, illustrating the band’s musical evolution as well as embracing their earliest influences.
Commenting on the song and collaboration, vocalist and guitarist Jean-Ken Johnny says: “It’s mainly about the city of Tokyo. It’s a really crazy city. Almost everything happens there. At the same time, almost everything ends there. I believe there are a lot of cities that have that in common. It’s a common perspective on big cities around the globe. We focused on the people who come to Tokyo, have big dreams, but end up stuck in a dead end. We talked it through with Patrick, and we were on the same page. It was amazing working with him.”

ABOUT MAN WITH A MISSION:
As the story goes, half-man, half-wolf band MAN WITH A MISSION thawed out of icy coffins in 2010 and tore through Japan with a feral rock ‘n’ roll energy on par with that of Godzilla. Over the course of four albums, most recently 2016’s The World’s On Fire (Sony Music Entertainment), the band became an international phenomenon in their own right. Produced by the legendary Don Gilmore (Linkin Park, Korn) and featuring collaborations with ††† (Crosses)’ Shaun Lopez (Deftones, Lupe Fiasco), the record clawed its way to #1 on iTunes and sold over 200K physical copies in less than two months. Since their emergence, they’ve taken a bite out of world-renowned festivals such as Fuji Rock, Summer Sonic, Knotfest and more in addition to touring with Rise Against. Slipknot DJ Sid Wilson shared the stage with these animals during a sold-out show at The Roxy in Hollywood and lent his remixing talents to “Distance.” Moreover, their music has been heard in Street Fighter V and the Japanese release of the Academy® Award-nominated blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road.
