ED SCHRADER’s MUSIC BEAT needed to make this record. 19 tours in the U.S. since the Baltimore-based duo’s formation in 2010, from headlining underground spaces to opening massive venues for Future Islands, had left vocalist Ed and bassist Devlin Rice exhausted and hungry to take their music to the next level. Both live and on record, they’d probed the limits of their primal noise-rock approach, which showcased Ed pushing his vocal cords to their breaking point while furiously pounding his floor tom into the ground. Ed and Devlin dreamed of a fuller sound layered, breathing arrangements their early rapid-fire compositions always seemed to imply, without yet having the tools to realize.
MÁSCARAS IS A MOVEMENT. IT'S A FRIENDLY GAME OF BALANCED, ELEMENTAL FORCES THAT PUSH, PULL, AND TURN TOGETHER IN AN UNCANNY DISPLAY OF SYNCHRONICITY AND UNBRIDLED ENERGY. THIS IS WHAT YOU LOOK FOR IN LIVE, LIVING MUSIC.
