Former Mars Volta Bandmates Reunite Alongside Flea

Just a quick bit of Wednesday listening for you all: Texas-bred titans Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala reunited, brought former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch onboard, *and* snagged the fine services of the one and only Flea to form a new "supergroup" as Antemasque.

The first song from this little collective is out today. "4AM" revives some of the best songcraft that Rodriguez-Lopez and Bixler-Zavala were able to create most often in their At The Drive-In heyday. The addition of Flea is simply the cherry on top of everything else.
