Mason's most recent album, Monkey Minds In The Devil's Time, was released in March to rave reviews.
Recorded with Dan Carey in his south London studio, Monkey Minds In The Devil's Time, is Steve Mason's second album for Double Six. It is an album saturated with politics. With a title referring to the Buddhist term for an easily distracted brain, it's an album that has been shaped by the current global political climate and the lack of dissenting voices in music and popular culture in general. The righteous, undaunted anger at the heart of the album has helped to create Mason's best record to date.
The Californian rockers were defiant in their intention to play the venue once again.
Smith announced his intention to get involved in politics, saying that he is "incensed to a level that I can't sleep".
Daniel Bruhl makes a cameo performance as Dirk Brulee in the video for Travis' return single 'Everything At Once'.
