In late 1985 Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams left The Sisters Of Mercy and, after enlisting the talents of Simon Hinkler and Mick Brown, formed The Mission and in early 1986 embarked on their first European tour, supporting The Cult. They released 2 singles independently, both reaching No.1 in the UK alternative charts, before signing a worldwide record deal with Phonogram (now Universal)

The year is now 2016 – Wayne Hussey, Craig Adams, Simon Hinkler and Mike Kelly returned with an album that some consider their finest work EVER – that album is “Another Fall From Grace“.

Wayne has described the album as a lost link between The Sisters of Mercy’s First and Last and Always album and The Mission’s own first album, God’s Own Medicine. He attributes this in part to his use of the electric 12-string guitar which fell out of favour with the singer-songwriter during the Mission’s interim years.

Produced by Wayne with Tim Palmer, whom also produced the albums God’s Own Medicine, Carved in Sand, and Grains of Sand, and including guest artists such as Julianne Regan (All About Eve), Ville Vallo (HIM), Gary Numan and Martin Gore (Depeche Mode), the album received unanimous critical acclaim and was the band’s first UK Top 40 album in over 20 years!

    I’d be so excited to see The Mission for the first time! I have friends in the U.K. who rave about them.

    Entered the first time, but will gladly try a second one as well. Great live band.

    I have been a fan since Wayne Hussey split with Sisters of Mercy to start The Mission in 1986. I was lucky to see them once before around 30 years ago and they were great. I haven’t had a chance to see them since that show and would LOVE to be able to see this show here in Portland. You never know when it might be the last chance, but this one very well might be. Winning tickets to this show would be monumental!
