Masked Intruder is an American punk rock band from Madison, Wisconsin.[1]

The members of the band are Intruder Yellow, Intruder Green, Intruder Red, Intruder Black, and Intruder Blue. Intruder Purple is playing bass in place of Intruder Yellow on their Winter 2019 tour.[2] They are known for the gimmick of wearing different colored ski masks on stage, never revealing their identities in publicity photos. They are also known for their early pop punk sound with their fast paced songs, usually about love.[3] Intruder Blue and Intruder Green claim to have met and formed the band while in jail.[4] Their self-titled debut album was released by Red Scare in 2012 and then re-released by Fat Wreck Chords in 2013.[1]

Their song "Heart Shaped Guitar" is a duet with Maura Weaver of the band Mixtapes,[3] who is also referred to as Intruder Pink.[1]
