To support the release of their new single (which will be posted tonight), Control, The Mission in Motion have announced a run of dates in late November and early December. Strangers will be along for the ride, too.
Check out the full details below.
Control was recorded at Electric Sun Studios and mixed / mastered by Will Putney. The track will appear on the band’s new album which is expected early in 2012. Vocalist Brett Islaub says “I think this is up there with one of the best songs we have written as a band, It is about staying focused and working towards achieving your goals“
Another step in the evolution of the music industry, or just another sign that band’s are getting desperate for cash? Either way, most people wouldn’t expect today’s news that the American car, the Toyota Scion, is funding the next Melvin's release - a mini-album that will drop next year.

Band’s involved include: Arcane Roots, Framing Hanley, Deaf Havana, Rise to Remain, Francesqa, Young Guns, Dillinger Escape Plan, Kids in Glass Houses, Evile, The Blackout, Frank Turner, Spycatcher, Dangerous! and We Are the Ocean.

The label, which is home to Trap Them, Landmine Marathon, Junius, Gojira and Wolves Like Us, among others, cited low income as their main reason.
Talking to label co-owner, E.J. Johantgen, L.A. Weekly's report stated: "There [does] not appear to be an upside," says Prosthetic co-owner E.J. Johantgen. The only income from the service comes in "fractions of pennies," even on their biggest titles, he goes on … "I would like to see what their projected ad revenue would be. Then we could really determine if their rates are fair."
