Clear Plastic Masks are a four-piece based in Nashville, TN. Members in the band actually also play in Thunderbitch, the side project fronted by Brittany Howard from Alabama Shakes, along with members of Fly Golden Eagle, another Nashville band who have just started Soft Junk Records, a new venue and label in Nashville.
On October 28th they are releasing their album, Nazi Hologram. The album title shares its name with a song on the record, and expresses the band's sentiments about the current state of the world, especially as it applies to the coming presidential election.
NPR's Ann Powers said of their debut album, Being There, "Katz's vocals are wry and slightly theatrical, recalling both Lou Reed and the Strokes's Julian Casablancas, and the band's Stones-ish rock is showy while still hitting hard and direct."
Clear Plastic Masks have been touring basically non-stop in the two years since the release of their debut album, playing with bands such as Alabama Shakes, Hurray for the Riff Raff, Houndmouth, and White Denim.
