Golden Guitar Award-winning and ARIA nominated Melbourne Bluegrass band Mustered Courage are set to release their fourth studio album ‘We Played With Fire’ this September, and their first new album since 2015. Known for their energetic live shows, the band will also hit the road for a series of national tour dates to celebrate the album’s release from October 2018.
The first single ‘When We Played With Fire’ leads the album’s release and is available for download now. It’s a track about the old days…the old gang. Some of those memories are a bit hazy, to say the least, washed out in a combination of time and tonic. These days, with social media, it’s easier than ever to do your own Where Are They Now segment on your old high school friends. Yet for some, no profile pic is necessary and the memory today is as vivid as it ever was. When We Played With Fire is a song to one of those people. Those that we’ve loved and lost and the memories that remain. Young love and crazy teenagers and reminiscing about everything in between.
Having signed many record deals for their previous releases, Mustered Courage decided to stay independent with this album and were keen to involve fans in their recording venture, running a crowdfunding campaign that raised over $15,000.
“We are very proud to be independent again and more excited about our new album than ever before,” says guitarist Julian Abrahams.
