RHCP bassist Flea and the now-broken-up Mars Volta members Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Cedric Bixler-Zavala, and Dave Elitch have combined forces to form the new band Antemasque. Surprising? Not really. Flea has played bass on a majority of Mars Volta’s 2003 debut album, De-Loused in the Comatorium, as well as trumpet (yep, Flea plays the trumpet, too) on their 2005 follow-up. After wrapping up a West Coast-centric tour, the group has now announced a batch of East Coast and overseas dates. Check below for the full list of gigs.

Michael Peter Balzary (aka Flea) is a bassist and co-founding member of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, with whom he was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. He’s also made cameos in bands like Fear and Jane’s Addiction. Mars Volta was formed in El Paso, TX in 2001, boasting Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Cedric Bixler-Zavala, Juan Alderete, Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez, and Deatoni Parks. The band announced their breakup in 2012.
