Mac DeMarco & Rick Froberg guest on Red Mass’ new single “Killer On The Loose”


Montreal punk/postpunk collective Red Mass will release new album, A Hopeless Noise. which will be out this week via. The record features an impressive cast of guest musicians and vocalists, including Mike Watt, Mac DeMarco, Evan Dando, Rick Froberg (Hot Snakes/Drive Like Jehu), producer/musician Martin Bisi, King Khan and others.

The new single off the record is a ripper titled “Killer on the Loose” which features DeMarco and the distinct, gravelly vocals of Froberg. “We took inspiration from the novels of Bret Easton Ellis, incorporating his fascination with the extreme nihilism and sometimes decadent behaviour of the elite into the song’s story,” says main man Roy Vucino. “The character at the centre of the song is the Diamond Girl, whose decadent world has crumbled around her. Her violent tendencies and destructive nature are meant to exhibit the first signs of her psychosis. As the Diamond Girl’s mental state deteriorates, she opts to react with violence.” Listen below.

Red Mass will head to Europe in February. Those dates are below.
