The Mission (known as The Mission UK in the United States were a gothic rock band formed in 1986 from the splinters of the freshly-dissolved rock band The Sisters of Mercy.
The Mission was started by frontman Wayne Hussey and bassist Craig Adams .The first success for Hussey came when he joined Dead or Alive at the request of frontman Pete Burns. After Burns retreated to become more studio-based Hussey decided to leave and was offered a position with The Sisters of Mercy, concentrating on 12-string and 6-string guitars. When the Sisters of Mercy disbanded, Hussey and bassist Craig Adams set up The Mission, recruiting Mick Brown on drums and Simon Hinkler on guitars. Aside from Hussey, the line-up has changed several times during the years.
