Sunderland alt. rockers Masamune are gearing up to release their infectious new EP, Tension & Resolution this month. Having solidified as a unit in 2012, the band bring together a barrage of powerful riffs, distorted layers and intricate lyrics to create glowing comparisons to the likes of Muse, Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Queens Of The Stone Age. With the first glimpses coming from their first single Run & Hide, which sets out a picture of anthemic choruses driven by fuzzy guitars, we’re left with a tantalising taste of what’s on offer from the forthcoming EP.

The band’s upcoming EP launch at Think Tank? in Newcastle on Monday 25th May will feature a host of other up and coming acts including horror metallers The Dead XIII, alt. punk band RUNoffthestatic and post-hardcore act Guilt City.
