Mason Hill, one of the UK’s most exciting new young rock bands are thrilled to announce their first release in over 2 years. The band, having recently agreed to part ways with Frontiers Records, are embarking on an exciting new chapter that will propel them into 2019.
Their new self-released single “Hold On” will be available digitally in November, fans can hear it live when Mason Hill hit the road for their forthcoming UK tour with The Dan Reed Network. The run of dates commences November 7th and winds up with what is sure to be a full throttle, high energy performance on the Planet Rockstock main stage, December 1st 2018.
Recorded at Riverside Studios near Glasgow, the “Hold On” single is mixed by Brian Sperber of Electric Lady Studio in New York (Ozzy, Alter Bridge, 3 Doors Down, Patti Smith) and is the first new track to herald the band’s new sound and album scheduled for 2019.
Lead vocalist Scott Taylor commented:
“We are acutely aware of the demand from fans for new material. We know it’s overdue, the fans want it, the band want it, and we will be driving forward in 2019. We’re thrilled that Brian Sperber has agreed to work with us on the single and we couldn’t be more excited about how the track sounds. It’s total, balls-out Mason Hill!”
