The creative flow from the former  Mars Volta  camp just won't stop. As previously reported, former MV members  Dave Elitch ,  Omar Rodríguez-López  and  Cedric Bixler-Zavala  have formed a new project called  Antemasque  and released some tunes.   Red Hot Chili Peppers  bassist  Flea  will guest on some of the new band's album, but is not an official member.

Their first single, called "4 AM," is streaming  on YouTube  and it's for sale through iTunes.

The band immediately followed up that single with a second, called "People Forget."  It's also streaming on  YouTube .

The band has a  trailer  streaming online, and there's a  featurette  in which you can see them fooling around in the studio.  

There are now two additional songs available online --  "Hangin' in the Lurch"  and  "Drown All Your Witches"  -- which brings Antemasque's total to four. 

In more Antemasque news, the band will release a full-length CD on July 15. Details on how to get it a little early are available on the band's  Facebook page  or their website,  NadieSound.com

The Mars Volta announced a hiatus in September 2012, followed by a tweet from Bixler-Zavala in January 2013 that announced the band's breakup.  The split was rumored to have been the result of a falling-out between him and Rodríguez-López, both of whom quickly announced new projects.
