As hinted at last summer, classic goth-rock act The Mission will reunite next year for a special 25th anniversary concert in London — although it’s not yet known whether this will lead to the series of U.K. and European concerts originally envisioned by bandleader Wayne Husse

Just two years after mounting a series of farewell concerts, frontman Wayne Hussey is considering reuniting The Mission to celebrate the goth-rock band’s 25th anniversary next year with concerts in the U.K. and Europe that ‘will be all about nostalgia — nothing more, nothing less.’
This week’s new releases include ‘Dum Dum Bullet,’ a posthumous compilation from The Mission UK featuring rare B-sides, demos and unreleased material; ‘Box Set 1,’ an audiophile vinyl set from the Cocteau Twins; and expanded reissues of Madness’ ‘The Rise & Fall’ and ‘Keep Moving.’
To get fans excited for the June 21 release of The Mission UK’s ‘Dum Dum Bullet’ compilation, frontman Wayne Hussey has assembled this 7½-minute promo clip that samples a good number of the record’s tracks.
Despite having split in 2008, The Mission UK returns this summer with a new compilation of rare B-sides, previously unreleased demos, new songs left over from the ‘God Is a Bullet’ sessions and a brand-new dance mix of ‘Dumb’ by late-period guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite.
