Mastersystem will release Old Team, the final single from their debut LP on November 30th.
“This footage was shot during the first and last Mastersystem tour. The great thing about it is it just shows a bunch of fellas, having the best time, ripping the piss out of each other, laughing and doing some shows. There’s something fucking brilliant about this…something free of the pressure that bands can turn into…That’s what Mastersystem was about, just a record, a band built from going back to how we all started, throwing riffs and cords around until it sounds something like a tune. No fuss.
This was Scott’s favourite tune on the record, and the spark that lit the paper that led to the whole Mastersystem album. It was always in our plans to be THE single off the record.
We’re very proud of it, which is why we’re honouring our original plans to put it out. It will not be a thing to propel Mastersystem forward into new places, but serve as a monument to all involved and to all that listened….That we made a class record we all believe in.
Cheers for listening. Justin, Grant, James and Nick.”
The debut Mastersystem album came out earlier this year and was warmly received by critics and fans. It was the last record Scott Hutchison was involved with. All proceeds from Old Team will be donated to the Scott Hutchison foundation.
There will be a limited run of 500 vinyl – the band and label want this in the hands of genuine fans, not ebay – they ask people to respect this.
