In the new line-up, the album of the singer / songwriters is at the cutting edge – it sounds fresh, absolutely modern and innovative. The concept of the band’s founder Iain Matthews is fully working. The musical skills of the new members, their engagement as well as their unbridled joy of playing are unparalleled and the polyphonic flowing vocal harmonies evoke the original version of the band. In autumn 1970, Matthews Southern Comfort turned Joni Mitchell’s ‘Woodstock’ into a worldwide No. 1 hit. Their three original albums ‘Matthews Southern Comfort’, ‘Second Spring’ and ‘Later That Same Year’ became classics.
The new album ‘Like a Radio’contains 15 tracks and sounds like a touching statement for an unstoppable restart of MSC, somewhere between traditional British folk-rock and Americana. In 2018, Matthews Southern Comfort will tour around the world and play fesdtivals in summer.
