My Gold Mask comes to Otto’s

What began as a collaboration between longtime musical partners Gretta Rochelle and Jack Armondo (guitar), became less a means to an end, than the end itself.

A deep wellspring of personal and musical experiences shaped their direction, and Chicago’s My Gold Mask is a culmination of a long artistic road that has led them to their newest effort, “Leave Me Midnight.”

Their new LP was released Feb. 19, while the vinyl version was released March 19 on Highweel Records. 

DeKalb will be the first stop of the band’s April and June tour dates.

My Gold Mask will perform at 9 p.m. April 4 at Otto’s Niteclub & Underground, 118 E. Lincoln Highway in DeKalb. Doors open at 8 p.m.

Informed by cinema and galvanized by the dimly-lit warehouse district where their rehearsal space lies, the duo thrives in a radiant wash of reverb, with a metallic-like symphony mainly comprised of a nylon-string guitar and drums.

Tinged with thunderous melodies, theirs is a sound of vision – a recondite vision to be sure, but such is the essence of My Gold Mask.

With a sound that has crossed so many musical spectrums, and their ability to deliver a powerful and engaging live show, My Gold Mask have shared the stage with such varied acts as Twin Shadow, Wavves, The New Pornographers, Japandroids, The Rapture, Blonde Redhead and Zambri, to name a few.

Eager to continue the artistic evolution of the band, Jack and Gretta are back to writing before they head out on tour in support of “Leave Me Midnight.” For more information about My Gold Mask and their upcoming tour, visit www.mygoldmask.com, connect on Facebook or follow them on Twitter @MyGoldMask.
