Our ultimate goal is the shared experience, vibrational communion with the listener. That’s you, and in fact, us too. As we make our music for own joy, and sense that there are others out there that will find quarter in our peculiar religion.
In the past 20 years, this entity known as Masters of Reality has meandered a strange path. We know well, the frustration suffered by our loving supporters. In the midst of these two long, frankly weird decades, we intermittently poked our heads out of the rabbit hole and looked around.
We must admit, lots of the time, we liked the rabbit hole. You’ve all seen variations of Lewis Carroll’s “Alice” work, or at least know the myth(?)…”Weird Scenes Inside the Gold Mine”, if you will. Without the hole there would be no Masters of Reality. A proper one anyway.
Fate is strange. We’ve decided to come out of the rabbit hole. It feels right now; at the time when there is little if any good rock radio, gloomy forecasts from every angle, an over saturated tsunami of internet musical ‘content’, frantic airports, you name it…etc etc etc And therein lie’s OUR rub; Exactly the reason. Because it sounds wrong. Because we’re from the hole.
‘Where down is up and up is down
So endless shall our eyes abound’
In addition to January thru early February’s UK/European tour with our legendary friends The Cult, tomorrow we will announce 8 western U.S. shows . They start in exactly one month’s time. “An Evening with Masters of Reality”
So, east coast/mid-west, here are your choices; buy a cheap west bound plane ticket now, or get your westly friends to film and post the shows, or catch up on nearly 20 years of our music and know that we’ll see you sometime after Europe.
Who’s in the band? Come back tomorrow!
“Back in the 1980s, producer Rick Rubin worked with Slayer, Danzig, Run-DMC … and a band called Masters of Reality. The first album they spit out back then (The Blue Garden) is collection worthy, and they have a new list of tunes for “Pine/Cross Dover,” due out in North America on Oct. 12″ …….READ MORE
