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.
The new studio album (our 8th!) entitled "Out on the Faultline" was released on CD/LP/Digital on Monday November 5th 2012 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 New Mastersounds recently went into the 106.1 studios to sit down for a quick chat and to play a few songs. The audio of the performance and interview is now up on The Corner's website, and available for everyone to listen in on. Be sure to mosey on over to the link below in order to find out which songs The New Mastersounds played and what they had to say.
"...the energy of their playing is contagious: the band lets loose and exudes a true dirty, funky vibe."
"If the late, great James Brown was still alive and looking for a backing band, you'd have to think that one act that would be near the top of his list is British Funk-Soul group the New Mastersounds, which plays that old-school, '70s Funk and Soul as if it never went out of style. "
