Scott and Grant Hutchinson of Frightened Rabbit, Justin Lockey of Editors and Minor Victories’ James Lockey have come together under the name of Mastersystem, and together they’re releasing a new album, ‘Dance Music’, on 6th April – that’s next Friday!
So far they’ve shared ‘Notes On A Life Not Quite Lived’ and, just last week, a video for ‘The Enlightenment’. Ahead of the album’s release, they’ve shared ‘Old Team’, another slice of scuzzy alt-rock.
Scott Hutchinson said of the album at the time of its announcement: “This is not the angst of a teenager, however. This is the anxiety of a man in his mid-30s, and for a lot of this record I found myself wrestling with the ways in which I am not quite doing life right, in spite of appearing to lead a relatively joyful, playful and artistic existence”.
The band are heading out on a UK tour in April and May, which will see them head to Manchester, Newcastle, Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham and London. Tickets are on sale now.
