The Mission recently posted on social media that they have re-recorded their 1988 classic Tower of Strength, along with a cast of legendary alternative musicians. The Facebook post says,

“What do Jay Aston, Michael Aston, Kirk Brandon, Budgie, Michael Ciravolo, Steve Clarke, Billy Duffy, Robin Finck, Richard Fortus, Martin Gore, Rachel Goswell, James Graham, Kevin Haskins, Miles Hunt, Gary Numan, Julianne Regan, Andy Rourke, Lol Tolhurst, Midge Ure, & Evi Vine all have in common? TOS 2020 coming soon!”

The Mission, who had to cancel their recent European tour due to the current global pandemic, are hoping to help Covid-19 related charities via the project.

We can’t wait to hear this mega-goth collaboration – watch this space for more news!
