Flea Contributes Low End to Antemasque’s Debut Album

Antemasque: Self Titled DebutIf you feel like you can never have too much Flea in your life, you need to get your hands on supergroup Antemasque’s self-titled debut album.

Antemasque, which is made up of former members of At the Drive-In and The Mars Volta (who Flea has also played with) recorded the album earlier this year and released it briefly online before pulling it in favor of a release with CD and vinyl options.

Although Flea, of Red Hot Chili Peppers fame, handled the low end on the album, Marfred Rodriquez-Lopez (brother of Antemasque’s Omar Rodriquez-Lopez) has now taken over bass duties for the group.

While there’s a live version of the album’s “In the Lurch” currently circulating, with Marfred on bass, here’s Flea original that will give you an idea of the record’s sound:

Antemasque is available on CD, vinyl and digital formats (iTunes and Amazon MP3).

Antemasque Track List:

  1. 4 a.m.
  2. I Got No Remorse
  3. Ride Like the Devil’s Son
  4. In the Lurch
  5. 50,000 Kilowatts

Saw them yesterday in Tokyo opening for Faith No More.

I have to say after being pumped up by the album the show was a deception, the bass was EQ horribly with too much low end and did not retained the punchy vibe of the original Flea recording.

The guitar was messy and way too much echo on the voice.

It was truly a disappointment due partially to the technic (well they kind of fucked up one of their song toward the end with an endless shitty jam-like version)

Still, I do recommend the album which is a great gem!
