Thank you, Bear Creek music festival! We had an amazing time for the 7th consecutive year, and long may the tradition continue!
We are very pleased to announce our New Year’s Eve plans - a very special show at the newly-refurbished Joy Theater in New Orleans. Click here for further details, and to buy tickets (on sale from Friday Nov 22nd). After that we play a one-off at Underbelly in Jacksonville, FL on January 2nd which also features two of our favourite US soul-funk-groove bands: Monophonics and Orgone. Get tickets for that here. Then it’s down to Miami for the Jamcruise pre-party on Jan 3rd at Tobacco Road before we climb aboard the Happy Boat on Jan 4th.
We’re currently taking a break for a few weeks but will reconvene at Stage 48 in Manhattan on December 29th to play our own Phish late-night after-show gig, hosted by Equifunk and Nolafunk. Get tickets for that here.
Thank you, Spain! Next stop Zurich, then Berlin, Hamburg, and back to London before we head across the Pond to our current favourite US city - Denver (Cervantes, Nov 8&9) - and then to our favourite annual music festival - Bear Creek - in Live Oak, FL (Nov 13-17). After which, the four of us will go our separate ways until after Christmas, reconvening for a special New Year’s Eve show in New Orleans (TBA soon) followed by a one-off at Underbelly in Jacksonville, FL on January 2nd which also features two of our favourite US soul-funk-groove bands, Monophonics and Orgone. Then it’s down to Miami for the Jamcruise pre-party on Jan 3rd at Tobacco Road before we climb aboard the Happy Boat on Jan 4th. Oh, and there’ll be a new album out early 2014, title and release date TBA quite soon.
The new studio album (our 8th!) entitled “Out on the Faultline” has been released on CD/LP/Digital on One Note Records, the band’s own imprint, and also in Japan on CD & Digital through our partners P-Vine Records. The record was recorded in San Francisco and Oakland California, co-produced by Eddie Roberts & Milton Davis, and features guest performances by the Jazz Mafia Horns and Papa Mali, as well as a smattering of tasteful vocal stylings from the band.
The more observant amongst you will have noticed that we’re laying low - taking our first proper summer break from Mastersoundsing in 6 years. We’ll be back in November for a short run of dates in Europe, followed by the wonderful Bear Creek Festival in Florida, to co-incide with the release of our 8th studio album “Out on the Faultline”. More details to come…

“We've loved these guys for years – and they still blow us away with their razor-sharp energy – a mindblowing sense of perfection that's still deeply funky and very spontaneous – not slick or smooth, as musicians of this caliber could easily be – but delivered as a socking punch to the rest of the deep funk underground” (Dusty Groove)
