The New Mastersounds to launch western US spring tour

P1014834-copy.jpgCurrently embarking on a tour throughout Spain, The New Mastersounds return to the US and head west for a spring tour starting in Jackson, WY at Town Square Tavern. This will be the bands first return to the west since the release of Masterology, a career-spanning anthology. The album features 19 tracks drawn from the quartet’s history, while the double-LP edition contains 20 tracks. In any format, it’s a killer celebration of The New Mastersounds’ international funk uprising.

Spring of 2011 will also mark the release of The New Mastersounds first ever US recorded studio record, Breaks From the Border, to be released in mid-2011. The band will be unveiling new tunes on their upcoming run that are sure to be instant fan favorites. After playing to a massive crowd on Jam Cruise 9, Jambase raved, "NMS do it clean and sharp. There’s nothing flabby about their approach to funk ‘n’ soul."

The tour will cross through some of the bands favorite territories and the west’s hottest spots. The March tour will also mark the band’s second time performing at the world renowned South by Southwest Music (SXSW) Conference in Austin, TX. The band will play an official showcase at ACL Live at Moody Theatre with Widespread Panic, SXSW keynote speaker Bob Geldof, and Preservation Jazz Hall Band. Celebrating its 25th annual conference, this will mark SXSW’s first time ever showcasing and filming at ACL Live.
