Break and Cross the Walls I, the new album from the Japanese superstars MAN WITH A MISSION, has been made available for international physical purchase today (Jan 28th) via JPU Records here. Marking the release the band have revealed the video for their take on the AC/DC classic ‘Thunderstruck’.


 
MAN WITH A MISSION put their half man, half wolf arena-rock spin on the iconic track with DJ Santa Monica providing frenzied record scratching among an intoxicating electronic bongo rhythm from Spear Rib, while Kamikaze Boy, Jean-Ken Johnny and Tokyo Tanaka take on the vocals and riffs of the original. The video was recorded at the band’s recent headline show at the Yokohama Arena and available to watch here.
 
Regarding the track Johnny says, “The reason why we decided to cover this song is because it’s simply such a cool song. It has the organic power that rock music holds. It’s not overboard, but it doesn’t underplay. It’s a song that’s straight rock and is such a strong, powerful song that it might even sound foolish. Maybe it’s a song that we, in our generation, just needed.”
 
Break and Cross the Walls I is the band’s sixth studio album. The collection was originally conceived as an ambitious two-disc set but recording sessions became affected by the prolonged world Covid situation and, so as not to disappoint fans with a longer wait, it was decided to release the set as two consecutive albums, with the second half due to be released in Spring this year.
 
Break and Cross the Walls I includes tracks such as the recently released ‘Merry-Go-Round’, opening theme of the popular TV anime My Hero AcademiaGodzilla vs Kong (Japanese edition) movie theme song ‘INTO THE DEEP’, 2020 NHK soccer theme song ‘Change the World’ and ‘Remember Me’, the main theme for Japanese TV drama Radiation House II. In addition to many other hit songs including the likes of ‘86 Missed Calls feat. Patrick Stump’.
