A message from THE MISSION:

We have huge pleasure to announce that our good chums, SALVATION, are our very special guests at the four UK warm-up shows we’re playing in October.

Leeds Music Scene Interview

From Leeds Music Scene :

Salvation are one of the bands to come out of Leeds music scene’s most diverse and prolific periods, the early to mid 80s. Leeds Music Scene caught up with vocalist Danny Mass (DM) and guitarist Ben Farvak (BF) at Heart Café, which sits at the center of LS6 the spiritual home of many of the bands from that period.

Clash Of Dreams

To coincide with the October tour the band have decided to release the “lost” Salvation album – Clash of Dreams. Produced by Andrew Eldritch and originally slated for release on Merciful Release in March 1985, it dropped off the radar as The Sisters machine gathered speed.

Periodically, for the last 30 years, tracks from Clash of Dreams have surfaced on poor quality bootlegs, both here and in Europe. This release, however, was mastered from the original tapes and makes Salvation’s first album available in its purest form for the first time.

Skeletal Family dates

There have been rumours of dates with Skeletal Family and we are working with them to try and get some in next year.

It has been a slow process though due to issues described elsewhere here!
It most certainly hasn’t been the fault of the wonderful Family who have been most accommodating and patient

We hope to be able to announce some 2014 dates before the end of the year.
