MAN WITH A MISSION–the five-piece rock band that blends rock, punk, pop and dance will release their new EP “Dead End in Tokyo European Edition” through Century Media on 23rd June.

6. Dog Days
7. Survivor – live from The World’s On Fire Tour

“Dead End in Tokyo” marks the first global single for MAN WITH A MISSION—Tokyo Tanaka (vocals), Kamikaze Boy (bass), Jean-Ken Johnny (vocals and guitar), DJ Santa Monica (DJ) and Spear Rib (drums)–and first release under Epic Records. The track confidently struts along on an arena-ready groove and thick guitars before culminating in the chant, “Keep on living, but you’ll never leave alive.”
“Dog Days” is currently running as a TV commercial for Asahi Beer’s non-alcoholic beer “Asahi Dry Zero” in Japan, and will be the first time this track will become available. “Dog Days” as well as “Hey Now” are produced by Masayuki Nakano (BOOM BOOM SATELLITES), and gives the band a new approach to their music.
The EP also includes “Raise your flag” & “Seven Deadly Sins”, both a theme song for a popular anime series.
As the band releases a live DVD from their 2016 tour(Japan only), 3 live audio tracks “Survivor”, “Give it Away”, “The World’s On Fire” has been added as a bonus track for the European fans.

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.
