The brand new supergroup Antemasque, formed by The Mars Volta (Omar Rodriguez-Lopez & Cedric Bixler-Zavala) along with Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea and drummer Dave Elitch (who at some point was also part of the Volta among other acts), have released two new songs from their yet untitled debut.

Cedric's a very volatile vocalist. I really dig his style.

plus they don't have those wtf moments that the volta had. all those crazy detours and soundscapes are sorely missed.

Listening to the first song now. Sounds like a 'sober' or 'restrained' at the drive-in, without the crazy freakouts or the acid-laced accentuations in their latter stuff. In fact it sounds like the early stuff i think.

I personally like it. It kind of cuts away some of the ornaments that made cedric and omar's music so distinct, but there's a rawness to it that i think more than makes up for it.

I think that both songs are pretty decent. "hanging in the lurch" is quite catchy. I'd like to see them grow to their full potential on the album though

I wasn't too big on "4AM", but I like "Hanging in the Lurch", even though it doesn't sound much like any of Cedric and Omar's older stuff.

To be honest these stripped back simple songs are a refreshing change of pace.

nice to hear them doing something a little more straightforward. it's got a really weird feel to it, but it's pretty awesome.

The three tracks released so far sound great, sad that Flea won't be a permanent member, though.

I listened to these in order and 4AM made me feel "meh"
Hanging in the Lurch had me bobbing my head
and then People Forget made me pretty damn excited to hear more.
