Steve Mason Readies Boys Outside

After a handful albums credited to a few different aliases, most notably King Biscuit Time, one time Beta Band kingpin Steve Mason is set to return with his first release credited to his own name, Boys Outside on June 22nd via Double Six/Domino. On Boys Outside the Scottish born Mason addresses his personal demons, including a life long bought with depression, suicide, and the implosion of one Britain's most critically acclaimed bands.

According to Mason, it was the treatment and antidepressants that brought out the songs found on Boys Outside, the results are Steve Mason's finest song cycle since The Beta Band released The 3 EP's. The weight of this material combined with a hypnotizing blend of pure pop, electronic soul, and experimentalism is sure to make for one of the most memorable listens of the year.
