Mission of Burma no longer on Matador Records, sign to Fire Records
I had a sneaking suspicion that this would happen, but now I can confirm: Mission of Burma have departed Matador Records after releasing three albums with the iconic label. Matador also handled the reissues of their back catalogue, including Signals, Calls and Marches, Vs. and The Horrible Truth About Burma. The reason I suspected this would happen was due to the fact that virtually no mention of Burma has been made on the Matablog since the band hit the studio last year.
Mission of Burma will release their upcoming as-yet-untitled fifth album on Fire Records, which is tentatively set to release on July 10. And now we play the waiting game…
…eh, the waiting game sucks, let’s play Hungry Hungry Hippos.
