The Mission announce New Zealand support act for 30th Anniversary Tour

Goth-rockers, The Mission are making their return to New Zealand shores this November, and today they are proud to announce New Zealand band, Disjecta Membra will support the UK legends on both New Zealand dates!

Formed in 1993, Wellington band, Disjecta Membra has survived through various reincarnations, with founder Michel Rowland remaining as the common thread. The band's 1997 debut album, Achromaticia solidified the band's profile and growing cult-like following within the international gothic rock and darkwave communities.

The band incorporates elements of folk and neoclassical music, experimental noise, bluesy swamp-rock, angular post-punk, melodic synthpop, ambient/drone and traditional Māori influences. 2013 marked the band's twentieth anniversary and a return from hiatus, with the first new single since 2007, 'Death by Discotheque'.

The band's latest single, 'Whakataurangi Ake' was released in December 2015 (composed by Maniapoto tribal elder, Pumi Taituha, and featured Rob Thorne) and featured play across 95bFM and Radioactive.

Over the years, Disjecta Membra have supported Peter Murphy (Bauhaus), Peter Hook (Joy Division/New Order), and Mick Harvey (The Birthday Party/Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds).

The band in 2016 is made up of Michel Rowland, Kane Davey and Jaz Murphy.

The band's new EP, The Infancy Gospels is due for release on November 17th, the week of tour.
