Montreal’s RED MASS dropped their album A HOPELESS NOISE today.
A huge amount of work was put into this epic garage punk ensemble of an album with collabs including Mac Demarco, Mike Watt (Minutemen, Dos, Firehose), Rick Froberg (Hot Snakes, Drive Like Jehu), King Khan, Hugo Mudie (The Sainte Catherines) and members of Black Lips, Duchess Says, Human Eye, Fly Pan Am & Godspeedyoublackemperor.
Created by Roy Vucino as part of the ‘Free Creative Enterprise’ TA DA arts collective, Red Mass has become a gathering of musicians, agent provocateurs and artists from around the globe. Punk music incorporating techniques of automatic creation and elements of chaos magic. The present core of ‘Red Mass’ is comprised of Roy Vucino and partner Hannah Lewis. The band has amassed more than 100 participating artists and musicians in its ranks. Collaborations with some of our idols, our friends, our family members and with strangers who simply wanna create something subversive.
