Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodríguez-López of The Mars Volta (pictured in 2011) and At The Drive-In are apparently making music together again.

Video clips revealed online yesterday (April 8) introduced a new project called Antemasque featuring Bixler-Zavala, Rodríguez-López, former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea (pictured right).

Volcom reports that the band have been working in the studio on titles including '4AM', as heard in the clip below. News of the song's release will reportedly be revealed on the group's Twitter page.

Bixler-Zavala dissolved The Mars Volta last year (2013) after longtime bandmate Rodriguez-Lopez started new band Bosnian Rainbows, comparing him to a cheating wife in an official statement.

The duo's other group, At The Drive-In, last reunited for a string of shows in 2012 when they reissued both their 'Relationship Of Command' and 'Acrobatic Tenement' albums.

Flea also plays in Atoms For Peace with Radiohead's Thom Yorke and Rocketjuice And The Moon with Blur's Damon Albarn.
