The seed that became British Rock Combo MASK was planted in 2005, when “H” Humphrey (Belfast) and Craig Coppock (Liverpool) met through a mutual friend. Both raised on a steady diet of The Beatles, The Kinks and The Rolling Stones meant a solid friendship was soon formed.
Fast forward a mere 12 years (!) and H Humphrey decides to quit his day job and start writing original material for the band. This would lead to their debut EP "The Truth" (released in 2017) and ultimately MASK were formed.
Following on, MASK released their critically acclaimed debut album "The Famous" (2018), crafting bluesy and gritty slabs of atmospheric indie rock that echoed the work of contemporaries like The Black Keys, Band Of Skulls and the Arctic Monkeys meant MASK gained real traction within the musical press;

2020 will see MASK go to the next level again with a brand new album called "Glamourpuss" featuring the already released single "Mayday" and the to be released (24th July 2020) "Shakin' Love”.
MASK have vowed to deliver an unpretentious blues-licked assault record that reminds you that rock is supposed to be unpredictable, dangerous, and in your face.
