Austin, TX powerhouse duo MISSIO has announced their new studio full-length – Can You Feel The Sun – set for release on October 23rd via 2B Recordings/BMG. Recorded at Austin’s Matchbox Studios, the 10-song album was produced by the band alongside longtime collaborator and studio owner Dwight A. Baker (Brandi Carlile, Bea Miller, Bob Schneider), and features guest appearances from hip-hop icons Paul Wall and Esoteric of Czarface. Can You Feel The Sun is available to PRE-SAVE HERE via your preferred DSP.
“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-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 premiered today via YouTube – watch HERE and HERE – 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 has seen a meteoric rise since releasing their debut album Loner in 2017. Catapulted by their breakout Top 10 Alternative single “Middle Fingers,” the band made their Late Night TV debut on CONAN and has performed on major festival stages including Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, Firefly, Hangout, Bottle Rock, and Voodoo Fest. With the release of their 2019 sophomore album The Darker the Weather // The Better the Man and through extensive U.S. headline touring and support slots with the likes of MUSE, 30 Seconds to Mars, Yungblud, and K. Flay, MISSIO has grown an incredible following of loyal fans aptly dubbed the “MISSIO MAFIA.” It’s due in part to these steadfast supporters and their grassroots campaigns that the band has landed FOUR #1 singles on Alt Nation and sold out their first-ever headline show in the UK last summer.
MISSIO’s Can You Feel The Sun is out October 23rd via 2B Recordings/BMG and can be pre-saved HERE. The band’s double-single “Can You Feel The Sun” & “Don’t Forget To Open Your Eyes” is out today, and you can watch the music videos for both HERE and HERE, respectively.
