Lynnette Shelley, singer of The Red Masque, asked me in an e-mail to post this message from her, since for some reason she can't access ProgArchives on her computer, though she is a member. I will gladly oblige since they are an excellent band.

Help fund The Red Masque's new music video and new album!
GoFundMe Campaign now live! There are rewards for donations at every level.

DONATE HERE

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", "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.

Thanks guys. 

I was having trouble posting on this forum. I kept getting error messages every time I posted, but Jean just messaged me with a work around for that.
So just seeing if it works.

EDIT: It does! yay!

Just a update: we have time booked with the filmmaker for late May to create the video for "Fathomless". This week we are headed back into the studio to record an intro ("Sand & Sea") and also a short musical reprise to "Fathomless" (called "Fearless"). It might seem like we have a lot of time, but the album will be out by summer, however, we need your help in order to cover the costs for CD Duplication / mastering and the video. Please donate what you can. Every donation level gets a reward. Help make this album a reality. And if you have donated already, thank you. Help spread the word far and wide. We can't do this without you.

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.

The Red Masque will be shooting a music video this weekend for their song Fathomless with filmmaker Jay Miller . We are very excited as this is the first music video we have had a chance to do. We'll keep you posted but in the meantime we still need donations for the costs associated with the video and new album production. We hope you will consider donating as well as helping us spread the word. There are cool rewards at every donation level. Go to www.gofundme.com/theredmasque . Thank you!

Last night we worked on mixing "Malum", probably our most technically difficult song to date. We still have a ways to go on it, but you can hear some of our initial mixing here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a5wFkytvod0




We still are asking for donations for our GoFundMe campaign. Please help spread the word to help us reach our goal. Currently we are just shy of $1000 to reach our goal, but even if we could get half of that it would go a long way towards funding the new album.

The Red Masque New Album / New Music Video UPDATE

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.

Music Video Shoot Update

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.



Please Help Us Reach Our Fundraising Goal
Please help fund the production costs for this new album and video at www.gofundme.com/theredmasque


We are still $1000 short of our goal. 
Can you help us reach our fundraising target?


100 percent of the money raised will be used towards cd duplication and mastering costs, as well as the costs of the video. The band has already spent a considerable sum in the studio, where they have been working for almost a year now, and if there is additional money raised it will go back towards these expenses. 

Please help spread the word about our GoFundMe campaign at http://www.gofundme.com/theredmasque ! For those of you who donate at the $25 or above level, in addition to getting a copy of the CD of our new album, you will also get a free download of this live show (plus other gifts). Thanks in advance! We can't do this without you. 

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


"Fathomless" promo edit now available to preview
We now have an edited promo sample clip of The Red Masque song "Fathomless" available for download. The whole track (which clocks in at over 9 minutes long) will be released on the band's forthcoming album (also titled Fathomless) due out in 2018. This 3 minute clip touches on the various main sections of the song.

To download or stream for free go to: http://theredmasque.bandcamp.com/track/fathomless-promo-album-edit

"FATHOMLESS" - lyrics

Here we are at the edge
There's no more to be said
But we can't stop our swimming
Hunger drives us on (and on) 

The scent of blood in the dark water
We don't want to make waves
With our black eyes we shall seek
All others give way to our need
Fathomless need

Be still and let me drown
Stop swimming, let me sink
Fathomless and fearless
The darkness bleeds

There is no empathy
There is no relief
Just blood in the water
And the frenzy of beasts
The tides go on and on

Be still and let me drown
Stop swimming, let me sink
Fathomless and fearless
The darkness bleeds

We hold on to our emptiness
We hold onto our greed
We're sharpening our teeth....
