Newly formed supergroup Antemasque might just be the closest thing we'll get to a Mars Volta reunion, Consequence of Sound notes.

Despite a falling out between former members Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala over a year ago, the two seemed to have buried the hatchet, teaming up with fellow ex-Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea for the new project.

While Antemasque have yet to make any official announcements, two recently surfaced videos prove that band does in fact exist. The first is a two-and-a-half-minute rehearsal video originally posted on ESPN, while the other's a 14-second trailer that shows the band with their pyramid-like logo. Check out both below and stay tuned for further updates.

    Flea just played on a few tracks. I'm pretty sure he's not in the band.
    Judging by their bandcamp Flea is also a band member: "ANTEMASQUE is a band. Dave, Flea, Cedric, Omar "
    What the hell UG? They already have two songs out.
