About MAN WITH A MISSION:
MAN WITH A MISSION is a rock band consisting of five ultimate life-forms: a wolf in the head and a human in the body. They burst onto the music scene in 2010 and have risen to sell out solo shows at the Nippon Budokan, Yokohama Arena, Makuhari Messe, Saitama Super Arena and Hanshin Koshien Stadium.
The band has been involved in many TV commercials, anime, dramas and movie theme songs, and has a wide fan base.
They have toured with big names such as Zebrahead and Jimmy Eat World, and have performed at the Reading and Leeds Festival and Download Festival, as well as a solo North American tour.
In 2020 the band celebrated their 10th anniversary, as they continue to evolve as one of the most exciting rock bands in and out of Japan.
