Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bury The Hatchet; Start New Band With...

Posted by - 09:55 PM on 04/08/14
Apparently Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala (The Mars Volta) have buried the hatchet and formed a new band - Antemasque. They've also recruited former Mars Volta member Dave Elitch on drums and the legendary Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers on bass. You can watch a short teaser video in the replies.

Two more videos with song snippets






"Revealed earlier today via short cryptic videos; producer Omar Rodriguez-Lopez has teamed up with long time collaborator Cedric Bixler-Zavala (both men of Mars Volta and At The Drive In fame) on a new project with former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch and the legendary Flea on bass. The new band, ANTEMASQUE, has been hunkered down in the studio and Volcom is proud to be able to present a longer look behind-the-scenes of the band recording their debut song, "4AM". Follow ANTEMASQUE on Twitter for an announcement soon regarding the official release of "4AM"."


From the Volcom page, guess a new song will be out soon.

Holy god- I hope this is good, because if it is, it has the potential to be fucking nuts.

EDIT: The clips sounded great, Flea looked old, and it sounded more straightforward (in the vein of ATDI) than Mars Volta. Stoked.

My friend tweeted saying he saw Omar and Cedric at the studio they're demoing at. I was wondering what that meant they were up to. This is good news.

Beyond stoked, love everything about this - plus Elitch is insane on the kit.
Looks like they're doing/did this at the Boat, a great studio in Silverlake that used to be the Dust Brothers HQ & a commercial studio (Cat Power, Anberlin, and Garbage recorded there) before Flea bought it a few years back.
