Steve Mason has announced details of his new album entitled Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Timewhich will be released by Double Six on Monday March 11th 2013.
Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time is an album saturated with politics. With a title referring to the Buddhist term for an easily distracted brain, the album features 20 songs: 9 recorded in London with producer Dan Carey and 11 short linking pieces self-produced in Mason’s Fife studio. Monkey Minds In the Devil’s Time is an album that has been shaped by the current global political climate and the lack of dissenting voices in music and popular culture in general. The righteous, undaunted anger at the heart of the album has helped to create Mason’s best record to date.
All songs on the album were written by Mason, while Dan Carey appears on bass throughout the record and acclaimed London MC Mystro provides vocals on “More Money, More Fire”.
Monkey Minds In The Devil’s Time will be available on CD, vinyl and via digital download – pre-order the album HERE. The tracklisting is as follows:
The Old Problem
A Lot Of Love
The Last Of Heroes

Thank you for all the comments. Amazing response! CMU Daily have just asked me for a quote. Lets see how far we can take this. Scott Fryxell made this comment below- "Advertising wants to replace art so bad." That sums this whole thing up for me. If original art dies and all you are left with is advertising......God! So, its worth a fight. Thanks x
