History

Following the demise of Angell's band Post Stardom Depression, he formed The Missionary Position with an old friend and fellow Seattle musician, Benjamin Anderson. When Jeff Angell and Benjamin Anderson began playing a Thursday night residency at a club in Seattle, Washington, they hadn't yet settled on a name. Those Thursday lounge nights were billed as The Missionary Position, and Angell said people thought that was the band's name. So rather than fight it, Angell and Anderson embraced what the steadily growing number of Thursday night fans already had—they were now in The Missionary Position.

In 2009 they recorded Diamonds In A Dead Sky and released it on the band's label The Boredom Killing Business. The band supported the release by touring nationally.

The song Let's Start A Fire was used for the Independent Film Channel's promotional campaign for its series Indie Screams.

In 2012 The Missionary Position released their second album titled Consequences.
