Recorded at Austin’s Matchbox Studios, the 10-song album was produced by the band alongside longtime collaborator and studio owner Dwight A.

We started talking with Dwight last summer about recording new music even though our second album had just released,” says MISSIO singer/songwriter Matthew Brue. “I felt inspired after coming back from our first European shows in some of the most beautiful cities in the world and seeing our music translate across the ocean, which was incredibly surreal” he continues, with multi-instrumentalist and engineer David Butler adding “The reason we create and release music is because we love the process of making it all. Being able to write songs for ourselves has to be its own reward even though we’re hoping we can get out on the road and play music for people again soon. Until then we’re hoping, through our music and lyrics, to encourage people to ask questions and to open their minds.” 

 

Along with the news of their new album, MISSIO has released a double A-side single featuring the title-track and album opener Can You Feel The Sun and the cathartic Don’t Forget to Open Your Eyes. Both music videos premiere today via YouTube and follow previous album tracks Hoodie Up and Wolves, which reached #1 on Sirius XM’s Alt Nation within three weeks of its June release.

 

MISSIO is a band that is known for their thoughtful lyrics, raw emotion, but also pure, and unadulterated fun. Tracks like WolvesHoodie UpCry Baby (feat. Paul Wall), Vagabond (feat. Esoteric of Czarface), and Roman Empire might get the fans incredibly hyped up, but songs like Don’t Forget to Open Your EyesWe All Burn to the Ground, and the title track Can You Feel the Sun glimmer with an introspective insight that now takes on an even deeper meaning in a pandemic ravaged world. 

 

With a song like Don’t Forget to Open Your Eyes I honestly don’t know where those lyrics came from”, says Matthew. “I had never taken the time to view the sunrise or the sunset and somehow this song has helped me personally heal when I’m overloaded with anxiety or depression. It continues to prove its message is bigger than ourselves.” 

 

MISSIO have toured the United States extensively as headliners, and through several large support slots for the likes of MUSE, 30 Seconds to Mars, Yungblud, and K. Flay. The duo have also performed at major festivals like Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Firefly, Hangout, Bottle Rock, and Voodoo Fest.  As part of a wider European tour, they made their UK (sold out) live debut at London’s Old Blue Last in May 2019.  Their high energy live performances and custom-built light shows easily set them apart from their peers.

 

The duo returned to play a second sold out UK show at London’s Colours early March 2020, but the second half of their most recent European tour ended up being cancelled.  The band were pulled off their tour bus at 2AM whilst crossing the Czech border, so that men in hazmat suits could check their temperatures to ensure that the touring party didn’t have COVID-19. They raced to get home on the final day before the U.S. borders were closed. 

 

Regardless of not being able to tour for the rest of the year, the band have decided to forge ahead with releasing their new music. They put out first single Wolves on June 24, which reached #1 on the Sirius XM Alt Nation ‘Top 18’ within three weeks. This is their 4th #1 single on the countdown to date.

MISSIO broke out in 2017 with their single Middle Fingers which reached top 10 at U.S. Alternative Radio amid the launch of their debut album Loner. All four singles off the album reached over 50 million streams each (and counting) on streaming platforms. 

 

MISSIO released their second album The Darker the Weather // The Better the Man in mid 2019, broadening their sonic palette. Their streaming audience tripled and they capped off their album cycle by releasing the single Sing to Me as part of the soundtrack to the global video game phenomenon ‘Death Stranding’. The band decided to document their creative process and personal growth during the recording process of this album, and ended up also releasing a documentary with accompanying soundtrack which they wrote and scored titled Love Me Whole.

 

MISSIO has now accumulated close to one billion streams within three years and two album releases.
