Red Masque New Album & Music Video

$935 of $1,800 goal

Raised by 24 people in 11 months

In late September 2017, Philadelphia art rock band The Red Masque  started work on their fifth studio album (working title "Fathomless") at PhillyJam Recording. Helmed by owner / engineer and Sigma Sound alumnus, Mark J. Montoro, PhillyJam is also where TRM vocalist Lynnette Shelley recently recorded with Green Cathedral on their album "Winter's Veil" .

The new album will feature the songs "Fathomless", "Fearless," "Where Once Were Rivers", "The Shallows", "Serpentine", "Malum", "Snow Moon", "Silver Scales" and "Sand & Sea." The band was also joined in the studio by guest violinist Alice Marie .

The new album should be available sometime in September / early October.

In conjunction with this recording, the band will be working with filmmaker Jay Miller to create an official music video for "Fathomless". (UPDATE: this video has been completed. See  https://youtu.be/jTtBPh2Ab7o )

The Red Masque are seeking to raise money for both the production costs of this music video as well as for the cd duplication and mastering costs. Any additional money raised over the asked for amount will go back towards paying the significant costs already invested in the recording process and / or to get an upgraded CD product.

This is an edited promo sample clip of The Red Masque song "Fathomless". The whole track (which clocks in at over 9 minutes long) will be released on the band's forthcoming album.

We thank you in advance for your support as it means the world to us.

The Red Masque Tees have arrived! I will be mailing off final packages tomorrow to everyone who donated at the $75 or above level. That should take care of all donation levels (minus the couple of you who still have yet to give me your mailing address and other additional needed info). If anybody has any questions, please email lynnette@lynnetteshelley.com.

Just as a note, I was told by some of you who that you hit 'reply' to the emails sent by gofundme. Please note that hitting reply does not send me an email as the emails gofundme sends out are no reply emails. You either have to go to the link provided in the email or you need to email me directly at lynnette@lynnetteshelley.com if you are trying to reach me. Hopefully that clears up any confusion.

Thanks again everyone and happy thanksgiving to those of you in the USA and for for those of you who are outside the US, I hope you enjoy your upcoming holidays.

HI all
I sent out packages yesterday for the $50 tier donation level (signed band poster / cd / guitar pick) so expect them soon (those of you who donated below that level were mailed out your packages on October 30 and 31). I also have important information for those who donated $75 and above: I was waiting on the tshirt shipment from Redbubble, who manufactures them for me, and they were supposed to arrive last week however they never arrived and they appear to be lost in shipping (They had a tracking number on them but never arrived at the shipping center). I contacted customer service at Redbubble and they are shipping a new tshirt package out for me, which SHOULD arrive by Nov. 21 (I will be getting tracking updates shortly). Once I get them I will be shipping out everyone's packages I am very sorry about this delay but it's beyond my control. I'm going to try and add in a little something extra for your patience. In the meantime, if anybody did not get a download code for the album, please let me know. Or if you have any questions, please email me at lynnette@lynnetteshelley.com .

hi all,
Those of you who donated 25 dollars were all mailed CDs on Oct. 30 and 31 respectively so if you live in the USA you should have received by now and if you live outside the US it may take a bit longer to get to you.

For those of you who donated at $50 or above and are expecting a CD as well as other rewards like a tshirt or poster etc., I have put in the orders with the manufacturers and am waiting for everything to arrive before mailing. So far I have all the posters and prints but I am still waiting on some tees to get here (ETA is by next week at latest). As soon as they get here I'll start shipping packages out. Thanks for your patience!

IF you have any questions, please email me at lynnette@lynnetteshelley.com

In the meantime, you should have gotten a download code from me for the new album. If you did not or have issues with that please let me know. And please help spread the word about the new album! :)

HI Everyone
Well the album is officially out (Bandcamp, iTunes, CD Baby etc). All of you who donated $15 or more should have gotten a download code for the album. Please let me know if you did not or if you had issues with your code.

As for the rewards shipping: For those of you who donated $25 I will be shipping out your CDs this week. For those of you who donated above $25 and are receiving additional rewards (tshirts, posters, etc), I have put in orders with the various manufacturers of those products and should be getting them within a couple of weeks or so. Once those arrive, I'll be mailing off packages containing the CD and the other rewards to you.

If for some reason I missed contacting you regarding address, or if you think you have not sent me your address yet, or if you have any issues / questions, please email me at lynnette@lynnetteshelley.com.

Thank you so much!
