RECORD RELEASE PARTY

The Missionary Position is thrilled to be releasing they're second album "CONSEQUENCES." Here is what people are saying.
"The Missionary Position, blends down and dirty blues with ambient soundscapes. It is two genres which are rarely merged in rock, but, along with their introspective lyrics, the Missionary Position makes it sound so good"
"The sincere rawness of these songs is what brings the listener in and coming back for more. Taking sonically charged rockers and downshifting to pull-at-your-heart love songs make up the sequencing of Consequences and it all works perfectly together"
"the band takes blues in a direction that would work just as well for an old-timey stripper act as it would for luring wayward youth down the rabbit hole into a seedy rock 'n' roll underground."

Tractor Tavern Friday April 13th with Fox and the Law and Alma Rosa.

NEW ALBUM, CONSEQUENCES PRE-ORDER ANNOUNCED

We are pleased to announce that the new Missionary Position Album release is official and that the CD/digital download version is available for pre-order now in the ONLINE STORE.

Building on the foundation established on their debut Diamonds in a Dead Sky, The Missionary Position's latest full-length, Consequences, reveals rich, sonically diverse song writing coupled with emotionally raw performances. By utilizing unusual atmospheric elements and a broad range of dynamics and textures The Missionary Position has succeeded in creating a sound that is undeniably their own. Tracks such as “The Objects in the Mirror” and “Please Don’t Leave” have the full-tilt thrust of four guys locked together in sonic purpose and power, while love songs such as “When I Fall Apart” and “How It Feels” bare teeth, and are perched on a precipice of vulnerability and sorrow. You won’t doubt the sincerity for one measure.

RELEASE DATE: March 27, 2012

“A particularly dirty brand of rock and roll: the kind found in vinyl collections alongside classics such as the Doors - Dirty but intelligent” - Lauren Napier
“The Missionary Position, has the ability to make the knees of every chick in town with questionable morals quiver, but packs an organic, longwinded, dare I say socially conscious punch.” - Matt Driscoll
“Urgently sexual music…. Undeniable!”
