Following on from the recently reissued ‘Vs’ and ‘Signals, Calls and Marches’ on Fire Records, Mission of Burma return to the UK and Europe this April for the first time since 2013. They also play All Tomorrow’s Parties (curated by Drive Like Jehu) along with shows in Dublin, Bristol, London, Leeds, Antwerp, Amsterdam and Berlin.
The band have been recognized as legends of the American indie rock and post-punk scene, having influenced musical icons from Sonic Youth and Nirvana to Moby and R.E.M.
Label mates Rats On Rafts will join Mission Of Burma on a select number of these tour dates including shows in the UK and Belgium.
