Japanese superstars MAN WITH A MISSION release new single 'Dark Crow'

The song is taken from their forthcoming EP of the same name out October 23rd.

MAN WITH A MISSION have also announced the release of a feature length documentary MAN WITH A MISSION THE MOVIE –TRACE the HISTORY– due out next year.

The new single ‘Dark Crow’ finds MAN WITH A MISSION enlisting a bagpipe section into their frenzied rock music for the very first time. The song features rap and singing in both their native and English tongue and has been selected as the theme song for the latest TV anime series of Vinland Saga.

‘Dark Crow’ follows the recently released ’86 Missed Calls feat. Patrick Stump’ also taken from the forthcoming EP. The song features guest vocals from the Fall Out Boy frontman and also achieved a major sync as the theme song for the new Japanese feature film Three Nobunagas.

MAN WITH A MISSION have been a part of major cultural moments in Japan and beyond. Their songs have sound tracked numerous anime films, TV shows, video games including Street Fighter V and also high profile sporting teams including Japan’s Sunwolves Super Rugby Team and New Japan Pro Wrestling G1 Climax last year.

Elsewhere on the EP is the delicate ballad ‘Reiwa feat. milet’ including beautiful vocals from the Japanese singer-songwriter. A remix from the US producer Slushii of the band’s 2017 hit single ‘My Hero’ closes the EP.

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 dominated a performance at Download Festival this summer, which celebrated the wolf pack’s rabid following in the UK. MAN WITH A MISSION have even more exciting announcements to follow soon.

“They’ve got big hooks, bigger grooves, and they’re all the better to rock you with.”


“Wildly idiosyncratic and fizzing with ideas… something like eccentric genius.”
