The tour follows the release of their most recent album, “Chasing The Horizon”, out now.

Streaming and buy options are available here.
The album features the previously released singles ‘Hey Now’, ‘Take Me Under’, ‘Winding Road’, ‘Freak It! feat. TOKYO SKA PARADISE ORCHESTRA’, ‘My Hero’, ‘Dead End In Tokyo’, ‘Find You’, ‘Dog Days’ and ‘2045’, which have clocked up multi-million streams across YouTube and Spotify. The international physical ‘World Edition’ also features exclusive special bonus tracks including ‘Mr. Bad Mouth’, ‘The Anthem’ and ‘Brave It Out’.
MAN WITH A MISSION are one of the most important and loved rock bands in Asia today. They sell out arenas across their homeland and have also completed sold out headline tours of the UK, Europe and US. The five-piece played their latest sold-out headline London show this year to an ecstatic crowd at The Dome, and also toured the UK with Don Broco.
