Antemasque (stylized as ANTEMASQUE) is an American rock band formed in 2014 by former members of At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta, Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala. Their first album featured Red Hot Chili Peppers's Flea on bass and Dave Elitch on drums.[2][3] Both Flea and Elitch had previously played with The Mars Volta.[4] Omar's brother Marfred Rodríguez-López (formerly of Zechs Marquise) eventually joined as a permanent bassist with Blink-182 member Travis Barker taking over drumming duties.[5][6]

History[edit]

On April 9, 2014 Bixler-Zavala and Rodríguez-Lopez announced their new project, accompanying the announcement with the release of their first single "4AM", described by Rolling Stone as "a charging, punkish rocker with the sorts of squiggly noodling that both the Mars Volta guys and Flea have used as calling cards in their respective groups."[1][4] Over the course of the next week, three more singles were released, and their self-titled debut album was released on November 10, 2014. Although Flea provided the bass for the album, he was not a member of the group but only played on their first album and let the band use his recording studio.[7]

On November 2, 2015, the band debuted eight new songs from an upcoming release, titled Saddle on the Atom Bomb.[8][5]
