The Mars Volta's Cedric Bixler-Zavala sounds off on recent vinyl reissues for the band -- commenting, "some idiot is pocketing the money" and "there will be a proper reissue of early Volta records [...] when we do release the early volta records they will be far superior in packaging and we will get the money."
Antemasque will release their debut, self-titled LP on July 15th. The prog supergroup has also released another new song, "Drown All Your Witches," which you can hear at bandcamp. Preorders go live tomorrow, and can be acquired here.
