Fan Art for New Mars Volta Side Project Is Illuminati As Hell

The newest band to spring forth from the everlasting well of At the Drive-In, Antemasque, has been releasing a song here and there throughout the past few months. Antemasque is Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala, both from At the Drive-In and the Mars Volta.

Their first album comes out in July, and the singles they’ve released so far promise a complex and compelling barn-burner of a record. The band recently took to Twitter to put out a call for fan art, and the fans did not disappoint. Followers of the band responded with some, well, creepy — but in a good way — visual pieces of artwork.

The fans who created these Altamasque-inspired pieces went in all different directions. One is a painting of the band’s triangle logo surrounded by red bodies with nefarious-looking hands. One is a sweet-ass ink doodle done in someone’s notebook. And one is an image composed of dots that places the band’s logo over the pink and red image of a, um, flower. We think. Yeah, we’re going with flower. More can be found at the band’s Twitter page.

Bixler-Zavala, Antemasque’s singer, revealed via Twitter his motivation for putting out the call for fan-made art.

You can stream the band’s four singles right now at Bandcamp, where you can also preorder the album for $4. If you buy the record now, you’ll also get it two weeks before its official release date.
