Clear Plastic Masks Release Debut Album Exclusively at SPIN

Being There, the full-length debut album from Clear Plastic Masks, is now streaming in full exclusively at SPIN (pre-order at iTunes, Amazon). Already receiving widespread acclaim KCRW calls the album, which is out next Tuesday, May 27 on Serpents & Snakes Records, "incredible...raucous rock, played loose and scrappy the way only a very talented group of musicians can." Additionally, the official music video for the new single "So Real" recently premiered at Noisey and can now be viewed/embedded here.

After recently wrapping a series of dates supporting White Denim (which the LA Record called, "brilliant") and performing at SXSW (which the Austin Chronicle called, "...with live-wire tenacity and a masterful sense of pacing: slow builds, breakdowns, rave-ups."), the band is currently in the midst of a spring U.S. tour, including a series of dates supporting Spanish Gold. See below for complete details.

Formed in 2011 in Bed-Stuy, Brooklyn, CPM relocated to Nashville in 2012 where they recorded their debut album at The Bomb Shelter with Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes, Hurray for The Riff Raff). The 4-piece band is made up of Eddy DuQuesne (bass/keys), Charlie Garmendia (drums), Andrew Katz (guitar/keys/vocal) and Matt Menold (guitar/keys). In addition to CPM, the band-members recently launched a side-project with Alabama Shakes' Brittany Howard, entitled Thunderbitch.
