Former members of The Mars Volta and Flea from Red Hot Chili Peppers have a new musical project. It's called Antemasque , and it features Dave Elitch, Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala -- all formerly of The Mars Volta -- plus Flea.
The band has a trailer streaming online, and there's a featurette in which you can see them fooling around in the studio. Also, Antemasque's first single -- from what hopefully will materialize into a full album -- is called "4 AM," which is streaming on YouTube now and is also available for sale through iTunes.
The Mars Volta announced a hiatus in September 2012, followed by a tweet from Bixler-Zavala in January 2013 that announced the band's breakup. The split was rumored to have been the result of a falling-out between him and Rodríguez-López, both of whom quickly announced new projects.
