Masked Intruder - M.I.Masked Intruder - M.I.

Since their initial incarceration in 2011, Masked Intruder have been hooking audiences on their never-ending quest for true love and parole.  Their sophomore release on Fat Wreck Chords, “M.I.”, is a fun-filled reminder that maturity is overrated.  Fans will recognize an updated version of ‘I Fought the Law’ to open the album.  Only the boys in Masked Intruder can offer the perfect date in ‘Crime Spree’, where infectious guitar riffs are glued together with stellar keyboards.  Their 50s sensibility shines on ‘Stars’, quite possibly one of the best heartthrob songs in recent memory.  The Doo-wop hit, ‘Almost Like We’re Already in Love’ showcases Intruder Blue’s crooning in the comical style we’ve come to love.  On their recent hubris release, Masked Intruder played their CD release at The Frequency in Madison to a packed house, proving as long as they can break out they’ll keep rocking and writing until they find ‘The Most Beautiful Girl’.  For now, the acoustic driven cry for freedom of ‘Locked Up and Lonely’ finishes off the album, reminding us to cherish our freedom while we have it.  M.I will keep fans hooked on the infamous gang until their next work-release is approved.
