Red Masque New Album & Music Video

$695 of $1,800 goal

Raised by 16 people in 1 month
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 .

As of March 2018, the band is nearing completion on recording the initial tracks and will be starting to mix shortly. The new album should be available by the summer.

In conjunction with this recording, the band will be working with filmmaker Jay Miller to create an official music video for "Fathomless".

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.

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

HI all
Last night we got most of the main mixing done on our song"Fathomless" and will go back in tomorrow night to finalize it (with the exception of the ending violin part which guest violinist Alice Marie will be recording when she gets back from tour in May). You can watch a little of the process on this video clip. Here engineer Mark Montoro is working on vocal mixes.

Last night we were in the studio again working on mixes of "Fathomless". The song has all elements recorded except for one final violin part on the end, which violinist Alice Marie ( www.alicemarieviolin.com) will record in May (she's currently on tour with one of her bands).

We go back into studio Sunday to continue mixing so we can have a template to give to videographer Jay Miller so we can start blocking out the new video (which we are set to create in mid-late May).

In the meantime, please enjoy this video clip of a work in progress mix of"Fathomless".

Please help spread the word so we can reach our goal for the recording. All money raised will go toward video production and cd production and mastering costs.
