Living miles apart from each other whilst juggling parental duties, MASK are a band who reflect what it means to be a rock band in the real world. Deliberately avoiding studio trickery, auto-tune and generic fakery, they are genuine friends delivering their tracks in a couple of takes with vintage equipment with the sole purpose of entertaining their audience.
Their time playing together is precious and the furious energy produced when they meet is tangible on their tracks. Coupled with their use of vintage 60’s and 70’s equipment, MASK are proving that though life can often threaten to get in the way, the ability to create real music is always there.
Having released their debut EP ‘The Truth’ in 2017 and their groundbreaking album ‘The Famous’ in 2018 – their honest musical talent and hard work have suddenly been revealed for the world to see – and hear!
MASK are led by H (guitar/vocals) who is based in Belfast, along with childhood friends Daz (bass) and Craig (guitar/vocals), the band are spread across Northern Ireland, England and Scotland – in fact, with well over 1100 miles between their locations, it would be far easier to have given up years ago. MASK describe themselves as unapologetically uncool; they’re all working dads; creating their best material at a time where life is throwing everything in their paths to make it all but impossible.
“Beneath their hard sound there is an emotional honesty that sets their work apart”
