MISSIO: The Loner Tour this Wednesday
Although they’ve been around for a few years, MISSIO gained major attention last year in the indie-rock world with anthemic tunes “Middle Fingers,” “Everybody Gets High” and “Bottom of the Deep Blue Sea” from the album Loner.
Missio, Latin for "mission,” is also tattooed on vocalist Matthew Brue’s wrist, serving as a reminder of his battle with addiction and, essentially, MISSIO’s mission—seeking purity through a minimalist approach.
In 2013, Brue holed up in a 1974 Airstream trailer to focus on creating songs without the usual distractions of the outside world. The minimalist life he adopted helped him hone his craft. More than 50 songs later, Brue emerged and teamed up with producer/instrumentalist David Butler, and Missio was born.
What came next for the bearded duo from Austin, Texas, was sitting in Butler's converted garage/home studio, carving out the electronic, broodish synth rock sounds such as "I Don't Even Care About You," "I Run to You," and "Can I Exist?"
After tour stints with Muse, K. Flay, Coast Modern, SAFIA and upcoming dates with AWOL Nation, the duo is taking the plunge and headlining their own tour.
Usually, a group that has two top-40 alt-rock hits is playing venues larger than The Ready Room, but apparently there is an exception, and the favor has fallen on the side of the music goers.
The capacity of The Ready Room is 750—take advantage of this chance to get up close and personal with Missio. It’ll be the last chance you get.
$15 dollars, less than it costs to fill up your gas tank, will get you a memorable night of music on Wednesday.
