King Biscuit is MIA

Published: 2006-05-12
Ex Beta Bander Steve Mason is MIA just days before the release of his debut solo album Black Gold under the name King Biscuit Time.

Cutting all communication with his record company and management all Mason left was a cryptic message on the King Biscuit Time website reading, "Peace to you all. I'm out of here. It's been amazing but I've had enough. The mountain beat me and sadly you too. That don't mean you should give up. It just wasn't me. Over and out, Steve."

The Beta Band were together from the mid-nineties till 2004 were a highly influential and critically acclaimed band though their folk, rock, trip hop style never really made a huge commercial impact.

Mason began recording under the King Biscuit Time moniker while still in the band, but concentrated more on the project once the band split in 2004.

Black Gold is still due out on May 15 but all tour dates planned for May have been cancelled.
