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!

    With God’s Own Medicine, I’ll leave my Children Carved in Sand. I’ll wear my Masque travelling from Neverland until I see the Blue Aura – The Brightest Light , Bending the Arc.
