The New Mastersounds Announce ‘Shake It’ Album, Share Single & Detail Summer And Fall 2019 Tours: Exclusive


The New Mastersounds will issue a new studio album entitled Shake It via Color Red on September 13. JamBase is pleased to exclusively premiere the LP’s lead single, “Let’s Go Back” and reveal plans for NMS’ summer and fall tours, all of which come in honor of the band’s 20th anniversary.

“Let’s Go Back” is a collaboration between The New Mastersounds and vocalist Lamar Williams Jr.. Keyboardist Joe Tatton wrote the Lee Dorsey and Meters-inspired song during a late night creative session in Atlanta. “I had a late-night NMS writing session with Lamar and when we went through the original groove, based on some Lee Dorsey songs, his voice fit perfectly with the piano chords,” Tatton told JamBase. “Lyrically, this is a message that it’s never too late to go back!”

Listen to “Let’s Go Back” below:

The New Mastersounds will follow an appearance at the High Sierra Music Festival with two nights at Sweetwater Music Hall in Mill Valley, California on July 6 and 7. Next, the band heads to the East Coast for July concerts in Richmond, Raleigh, Washington D.C., New York City and Philadelphia. The group returns to the road in the U.S. this fall between September 26 – October 19. Atlanta’s Ternimal West hosts the tour opener on September 26. From there, NMS play shows in Charleston, Asheville, Bend, Seattle, Portland (Oregon), Boulder and Denver before ending the tour with shows at Chicago’s Bottom Lounge on October 17 and Atomic Cowboy in St. Louis on October 19.
