EXTREME - Share New Video For "The Mask"


Extreme
 

“SIX” is out now, stream and order it HERE.

 

THE MASK” is a propulsive big beat pondering of the duality of human nature. Bassist Pat Badger and drummer Kevin Figueiredo really shine here as they relentlessly hold down the groove behind Nuno Bettencourt and Gary Cherone’s bluesy, growling delivery of basic truths and conflicts we all face: “We’re all fiction and we’re all fact /We’re all the good and we’re all the bad.”


And the fact is that no EXTREME song would be complete without a stunning guitar solo from Nuno Bettencourt (also the video’s director). When it arrives, it is a blistering thing of beauty that seems to come from the heyday of FM rock radio, blaring from a car stereo going way too fast down the highway.


Nuno Bettencourt about the song: THE MASK is about being ourselves with no fear and embracing who we are underneath. Deep down. And if we are brave enough to take off our masks, we will realize that we are all sinners and saints and do as the lyrics narrate. (…) We can truly stop judging each other as we are no better.”

SIX” was released on June 9th to universal acclaim, proving that EXTREME maintain their power to impress and move their fans. “We’re just as passionate as we were on day one,” says Gary. “We’re giving our audience what EXTREME has always been and will be.”
