THE RED MASQUE open for Ascension of the Watchers (featuring members from Fear Factory and Ministry); Plus other news

This just in! Philadelphia avant rock band The Red Masque will be opening for Ascension of the Watchers, featuring Burton C. Bell of Fear Factory, at the Khyber in Philadelphia on Feb. 21.

"Ascension of The Watchers, the creative journey of Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory, G//Z/R) and John Bechdel (False Icons, Fear Factory, Killing Joke, Prong, Ministry, and Murder Inc.), is a vision born of life, love and spirituality. The intimate nature of Ascension of The Watchers is envisioned to draw the minds, hearts and aspirations of a people to a higher level of thinking and feeling by bringing them together in celebration and reflection in the beauty of life and spirituality, through these melodies and words."

About The Red Masque: "From Pennsylvania hails a quartet without limitations to their purposes and without shame regarding norms and dogma within new rock." - Tarkus Magazine

"In the Nu-progressive rock underground, few bands are as respected and feared as Philadelphia''s The Red Masque. Without irony or kitsch, the whirlwind that is Masque ... stalks the darkness of Hammer Horror ambience and cursedly complex musicianship (think Gong meets Bauhaus) with only feedbacking noise, sound-collage clustering and the howl of vocalist Lynnette Shelley to light its way." - Philadelphia City Paper
