MASK Blog - Am I leaving MASK?
Since I announced I was releasing my first solo musical project, the most commonly asked question in my life has been - am I leaving MASK?
I have to say that anyone who is asking this question doesn’t really know us at all!
I actually know bands who can’t stand each other. They set up the gear, play the show whilst seething and get the f*ck out of there before they kill the bass player haha… This a million miles away from what we’re about.
As I look back over our fifteen years of friendship - it’s fair to say we have been through every single emotion together and I honestly can’t remember a time when we’ve fallen out or had an argument.
We’ve cried in each others arms and laughed so hard that we’ve actually made each other throw up - nice! It’s a special kind of bond.
And so the answer is a resounding - no.
So why do a solo record?
Almost everyone in MASK has their own musical projects going on so I guess this is just my “new one”…
I have always pushed myself, each and every day to be better in every way, sometimes I hate my life for this (i’m knackered!) but this is who I am. The only way I could see myself evolving as a songwriter/musician was to go completely out of my comfort zone and try something different - wish me luck.
My debut single is out on May the 1st. I have created a members list if you want to get updates, gig news etc.
