The Winter Mission is your new favorite unsigned powerpop/pop-punk band.
The Winter Mission began under a different moniker (Earth Stood Still) during the fall of 2005 by Wes, Nate, Jay, Erik, and Darris. Unfortunately, Darris left the band to concentrate on his other group, a grindcore outfit dubbed Network of Terror. After Darris' departure, The Winter Mission continued on as a four-piece with no bassist. Following Darris' decision to leave, Erik also decided to leave the band in order to focus on school. Will (formerly of Farewar) was quickly added to the line-up to replace Erik. From here, the band began writing new material and entered The Sound Barn Studios with John Harrell behind the boards to record their newest EP "Pretend It's Fiction". Following the release of "Pretend It's Fiction", Jay decided to exit the group. Ian and Chris (both formerly of Jumping The Shark/Romeo Is Bleeding) joined the band in spring of 2007 playing guitar and bass, respectively. With a newly solidified line-up and fresh off the release of their latest EP, The Winter Mission are poised to capture the attention of new fans across North Carolina and the rest of the world!
