    Mastersystem have shared a video for their final single, “Old Team.” A message about the song and video from the band can be found below.

    This footage was shot during the first and last Mastersystem tour. The great thing about it is it just shows a bunch of fellas, having the best time, ripping the piss out of each other, laughing and doing some shows. There’s something fucking brilliant about this…something free of the pressure that bands can turn into…That’s what Mastersystem was about, just a record, a band built from going back to how we all started, throwing riffs and cords around until it sounds something like a tune. No fuss.

    This was Scott’s favourite tune on the record, and the spark that lit the paper that led to the whole Mastersystem album. It was always in our plans to be THE single off the record.

    We’re very fucking proud of it, which is why we’re honouring our original plans to put it out. It will not be a thing to propel Mastersystem forward into new places, but serve as a monument to all involved and to all that listened….That we made a class record we all believe in.

    Cheers for listening. Justin, Grant, James and Nick.

    Great that they have such good footage capturing their time together on their one tour together. As fans, we're lucky to have so much amazing art from Scott to cherish, and he always shared so much of himself with us. My thoughts still go out to his family and friends. There have been relatively regular updates and releases like this since his passing, but it's hard to reconcile that soon those will come to an end and there won't be more music or illustrations from him.
