Video: The Mission, ‘Sometimes the Brightest Light Comes From the Darkest Place’

The Mission

The Mission opens its first North American tour in more than a decade tonight in Washington, D.C., and the band is using the occasion to debut the music video for “Sometimes the Brightest Light Comes From the Darkest Place,” the lead single from forthcoming album The Brightest Light, which arrives later this month.

The clip, which you can see below, premiered today at, and, as you can see, it’s shot from frontman Wayne Hussey’s POV as he rolls out of bed and makes his way through semi-naked ladies and ample booze to that night’s Mish gig, which is where it concludes.

Check it out below — along with the band’s North American dates.

  1. Batshiz Crazay

    What a fucking AMAZING song! Easily one of the best songs they’ve ever put out. Reminds of of something that could have come out during their Neverland-era period.

  2. I wasn’t too crazy about the album sampler when i heard it, but I saw them live last night in Philly and I really enjoyed the new songs! Picked up the album after the show, and while it isn’t my favorite Mish album, it isn’t as dismal as I thought it was going to be. “Swan Song” really held up against their greatest hits live – great track – and there are a bunch of other good songs on there.

  3. I really dig this track too! Great stuff!

  4. After more listening, i gotta say that if you were ever a fan of this band, the final two tracks on the album alone are worth the price of admission! Tremendous stuff!
