The Red Masque Announces our new guitarist Scott Weingarten.
Guitarist David Carle, who performed on our new album, Fathomless (due out late October), had been wanting to leave the band last year before the recording started due to time constraints and other commitments but was gracious enough to stay on for the recording as well as help us find a new guitar player to fill in his big shoes (Thanks Dave!). To that end, we'd like to welcome Scott Weingarten, who also guests on the album for a solo on "Malum". Scott amazed us at his audition several months ago by coming in already knowing how to play the songs (not an easy feat!). Our performance at Witches' Brew will be his first concert with us. Look for updated bio and photos on our website shortly.


September 26, 2018: New Album Update
The songs are currently being mastered and we should have that completed by the end of the week. Lynnette has also worked on the album art and put together the cd design for the packaging. Once the files are back from the mastering studio, we will be uploading them along with the art files to the disc manufacturing plant. So current ETA on the album going public is sometime in October. PERFECT FOR HALLOWEEN GIFT GIVING :)

THERE IS STILL TIME TO DONATE TO OUR FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN. We are taking down the campaign by October but if you want to help us out, there is still a little bit of time to do so. PLEASE donate at www.gofundme.com/theredmasque .

September 1. 2018: The Red Masque complete recording and mixing of new album, Fathomless.

WE FINALLY DID IT.
Yesterday the band completed final mixes at Philly Jam Recording on our new album Fathomless. After almost a year in the studio (we originally started tracking drums the third week of September in 2017), we have completed recording and mixing of our new album, Fathomless. Although we may be biased band members, we can honestly say this is the best album we have ever made. We hope you will think so too. Next up we are bringing the tracks to a mastering studio. Once that is complete we will have the packaging and cds manufactured and shipped.

The new album, Fathomless, will feature the following songs:
1. Sand and Sea
2. Where Once Were Rivers
3. The Shallows
4. Fathomless
5. Silver Scales (live)
6. Serpentine
7. Malum
8. Fearless
* 9. Snow Moon (live) (this song will be a bonus, download only)

Watch a video of Malum being mixed

WE STILL NEED YOUR HELP

We are wrapping up the gofundme campaign by the end of September. We have still not reached our goal. If we do not reach our goal then we may need to downgrade the amount of cds we will be producing as well as looking at more affordable packaging options. If you donated already, thank you. If you have not, please consider it, and / or helping us spread the word.

July 29, 2018: The Red Masque releases official "Fathomless" video.


July 2018 News

New Album "Fathomless" Update
HI Everyone. We thought we'd give you an update on how the new album and music video are progressing. We are almost finished mixing Fathomless. This past month we added the last vocal backing track, as well as the violin work by guest violinist Alice Marie (who we hope to be able to bring out with us for some live shows as schedules allow. We have finished final mixes for most of the songs on the album and will be wrapping up mixing work on the rest shortly.

We are very excited to soon be able to release Fathomless, as we feel that is has some of our strongest material to date on it - both in terms of writing and in production. Mark J. Montoro, the owner and engineer at Philly Jam Recording has been wonderful to work with and we hope to continue to work with him in the future.

Watch some behind-the-scenes youtube videos from the recording studio here.

The band recently shot a music video for "Fathomless" with filmmaker Jay Miller this past May. Special thanks to Gina Andreoli for the use of her studio space and to Jay for shooting the video! Jay has sent the band the footage and we are currently doing some final tweaks but the new video should be released very shortly. Keep watching our facebook page or your inbox for its debut.
