New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
Masks is the latest single off Fear Control's 2015 EP titled The Monster. Vocalist and guitarist Kash Sarkaria had this to say about the video.
This song is about one of the toughest times in my life with a a long-term relationship ending and just coming to the realization that it was time to move on, whether we wanted to or not. For the video, I randomly found this location under a bridge in Austin and loved it so much that we did our band photo shoot here as well as the music video. I just love the juxtaposition of light and dark and the endless pillars in the background. We got it all done in an afternoon, despite 20+ takes. But we couldn't be happier with the final result.
