It's time again for Mason Rack

TIME AGAIN is the latest single by Australian Blues troupe The Mason Rack Band.

Time Again is a powerful, emotionally charged Blues number reflecting on Mason's troubled past of drug addiction and what he'd do differently if he had his time again.

With 16 years touring and three studio albums under their belts, 2018 marks a much anticipated milestone for the three-piece with this new single, to be followed by a fourth studio album recorded with Brad Hosking of Blind Boy Studios (Amy Shark).

Now in a good place enjoying long-term sobriety and happiness with a family and successful music career, Mason reflects on those times.

"Time Again is a song of great reflection for me," he said.

"I've caused a lot of hurt in the past with some poor choices early in my life, which leads me to ask if repeating my time on earth, what would I do differently? What would I do the same?

"The lyrics in this song tell it all really - they are very honest."

Featuring Rack's signature raspy vocals and hooky rock riffs, Time Again takes an unusually slow but rewarding pace for a Mason Rack Band tune, hitting just the right note for an empowering and energising lift.

"To change your future for the better, you need to slow down and take the time and courage to face those demons of the past. So it felt right for this song to do the same," said Mason.

From a dozen headlining international tours in Europe and Canada, to multiple appearances at Australia's biggest festivals like Bluesfest, Woodford, Airlie Beach and Queenscliff Music Festivals, to name a few, Mason Rack Band deliver an intense live show.

'Infamous' for their live drum duels, onstage antics and high energy stage show, Mason Rack Band are celebrating the single release with a six-date regional tour of NSW and Queensland before heading overseas for their seventh European headlining tour.

Time Again is available on all digital outlets from Friday.
