"BACKMASK began in 2001 when vocalist/guitarist Shane McFee recruited band members with a self-produced demo. Quickly developing a local following with their furious live onslaught, BACKMASK then secured global notoriety with a #1 charting song on mp3.com in 2002. After relentless regional touring in their home state of California, BACKMASK followed up in 2004 with a 5-song EP produced by Kurt Howell, which earned the band strong reviews and major label interest.
A do-it-yourself band from the start, BACKMASK eschewed major label "stardom" for the road of complete creative control. With the addition of bassist Richard Chapleau (ex-The Day After) in 2006, BACKMASK recorded and released the self-produced full-length album Dark Fiber. In the midst of recording Dark Fiber, Richard asked guitarist Oscar Barron (also ex-The Day After), to join up with BACKMASK, making the twin-guitar antics of the album a reality live."
