Red Mass Announces KILRUSH DRIVE LP, Unveils Tour Dates and Single
Red Mass has announced that they are set to release 'Kilrush Drive' via No Coast Records and Label Etiquette on March 22nd. The group has shows planned in support of the release, including a release show in Montreal and another in New York, as part of their New York residency where they will play Gold Sounds in Brooklyn on the last Saturday of each month. You can listen to the first single, "God's House", right now.
"Kilrush Drive" is surreal politics, irreverence, dark pop hooks and unsettling tones over a bed of industrial, hip hop and electro beats. The latest Red Mass album "Kilrush drive" was recorded by Mingo L'indien from Les Georges Leningrad, Jace Lasek, Sebastien Perry and producer/engineer Martin Bisi (Sonic Youth, Iggy Pop, Herbie Hancock).
Red Mass is a gathering of artists, musicians and agent provocateurs from around the globe. Created by Roy Vucino as part of the 'Free Creative Enterprise' TA DA arts collective, its goal is to create punk music and art, in various mediums while incorporating techniques of automatic creation, chaos magic and liberation through art. To do so the Mass forgoes any allegiance to a specific scene, genre or sound. This method of working outside of the classic band format allows the Mass to work with as many international collaborators as it likes regardless of their experience, style or background. The present core of 'Red Mass' is comprised of Roy Vucino and partner Hannah Lewis. Eager to explore new soundscapes and to collaborate with musicians all over the world, 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 wanna create something subversive.
The means are the end in order to create freely, nothing is sacred in the sweet blasphemy of our art. In a splintered world, the group sees art and music as a way to bring people closer. It has opened itself to all. As above, so below. We welcome you to the Red Mass.
