Masters of the Hemisphere Return with First New Album in Nearly a Decade

Masters of the Hemisphere Return with First New Album in Nearly a Decade
Athens, GA-based indie pop experimenters Masters of the Hemisphere have been absent from the music world for nearly a decade, with the band last issuing a live album of their final show, suitably titled The Last Show Ever, back in 2003. This year, however, they'll make a proper return with a new album and cassette box set.

This proper follow-up to 2002's Protest a Dark Anniversary is called Maybe These Are the Breaks, and a press release explains that it finds the group "in supreme form, building on their strong back catalogue of alluring pop and ambitious conceptual outings, while expanding their sonic landscapes considerably."

Maybe These Are the Breaks will be released on October 4, with a digital version dropping on Kindercore and the physical CD and LP coming via Magic Marker. Album track "Belushi" can be heard below courtesy of RCRDLBL.

The new album will also be available in a limited cassette box set alongside all of the group's previous albums, as well as unreleased B-sides. That release will hit via Modern Country, though a release date has not been set just yet.
