At the Drive-In @ Lollapalooza 2012 (more by James Richards IV)

Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodríguez-López's post-Mars Volta // At the Drive-In band Antemasque released their debut LP earlier this year, but it's since been taken off the internet and will be "officially" released in October via Omar's Nadie Sound label. While you wait for the full LP to arrive, you can take a listen to the album cuts "4AM" and "Ride Like The Devil's Son" at the bottom of this post.

Antemasque will be embarking on a fall international tour in October. Though Flea is featured on the album, the band's lineup is rounded out by permanent bassist Marfred Rodríguez-López and former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch (who's on the LP). Le Butcherettes have been named as main support for the tour -- Omar produced and played bass on their album and is in Bosnian Rainbows with LB frontwoman Teri Gender Bender. You can look for the two acts to tag Chicago for a show at Metro on November 16. Advance tickets are on sale now.

Bosnian Rainbows live in Tokyo, Japan earlier this month (photo by Kazumichi Kokei)

Bosnian Rainbows (formerly known as the Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group) will be touring throughout North America in 2013. They'll hit the road in mid-February and will reach Chicago on the 26th of the month for a performance at the Bottom Lounge. Advance tickets for the Chicago show are on sale now. All dates are listed below.

Though details are sparse, Bosnian Rainbows are expected to release their debut LP early next year. While rehearsing for a fall European tour at Clouds Hill Studios in Hambourg, Germany, Bosnian Rainbows recorded a half hour-long live session. That session has been released this month on 10" vinyl and DVD as a part of the Live at Clouds Hill box set. The set also includes a collaboration between Omar Rodriguez Lopez and Faust. It's available for purchase via Clouds Hill's webstore. That tour featured Le Butcherettes vocalist Teri Gender Bender, who is now a full-time band member. If you recall, Le Butcherettes headlined Saturday of Do Division 2012, and absolutely killed it.

All known Bosnian Rainbows tour dates and a few videos are below...
