Wayne Hussey has enlisted current and former members of The Cure, Depeche Mode, The Cult, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Bauhaus and The Smiths for an all-star remake of The Mission’s 1988 anthem “Tower of Strength” to benefit “key workers dealing with COVID-19 globally.” Full details right here.
Wayne Hussey has re-teamed with Los Angeles alt-rock outfit Beauty in Chaos, lending his voice to the rumbling single “The Delicate Balance of All Things” off the band’s forthcoming second studio album The Storm Before the Calm — and we’re thrilled to be able to premiere the music video for the new track.
he long-out-of-print album by The Sisterhood — the project born out of Andrew Eldritch’s feud with ex-Sisters of Mercy bandmates Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams — will be reissued on CD, cassette and vinyl for the first time in decades, and released digitally for the first time ever. Details right here.
Wayne Hussey admits he’s no fan of live albums, but he knows other people like them, so he’s come up with a plan: The Mission will record one of its tour rehearsals — a more “controllable environment” than a concert — for release as a two-disc live set called Bending the Arc. Full details here.
For this week’s installment of Vintage Video, we present The Sisters of Mercy’s long-out-of-print concert film “Wake,” recorded at London’s Royal Albert Hall on June 18, 1985 — the final concert by the lineup that included Wayne Hussey and Craig Adams, who went on to form The Mission.
The Mission next month will release an expanded collectors’ edition of its 2016 album Another Fall From Grace, offering fans a five-disc set that will include the full album, bonus material and videos spread over two CDs, two LPs and a DVD, plus a 20-page limited-edition book.
On May 5, Wayne Hussey, frontman of The Mission, will release a 2DVD/1CD set Songs of Candlelight & Razorblades Live that chronicles his tour last year in support of his latest solo effort, and he’s teasing the upcoming project with a live stream of one of its tracks: a live cover of George Michael’s “Careless Whisper.”
While the reunion of The Mission continues — the band currently is touring South America — frontman Wayne Hussey is branching out on his own this fall with the release of a brand-new, 14-track solo album entitled Songs of Candlelight & Razorblades that will be supported by a massive, 50-date European tour.
The Mission is following up last year’s reunion album The Brightest Light with a brand-new EP that will feature four new songs that each are sung by a different member of the band — plus, for those who purchase the digital version, a bonus fifth track in the form of a cover of Bob Dylan’s “All Along the Watchtower.”
With The Mission having recently started using film projections in concert for the first time, Wayne Hussey decided to go the next step and put together a full music video for one of the band’s songs: “The Girl in the Fur Skin Rug,” a tribute to Marianne Faithfull that now features an accompanying video.
