Masked Intruder: Crime and Love Songs Go Together Like Chocolate and Peanut Butter

Of all the gimmicky bands out there, Masked Intruder's premise is pretty rad. This group of masked thugs hails from the oh-so-rough neighborhood of Madison, Wisconsin, and commits unforgivable crimes like suffering from ongoing heartbreak. Like most superheroes, the band members keep their identities secret, hiding behind color-coded ski masks.

I recently chatted with the lead singer/guitarist of the band, who identifies as Intruder Blue, to discuss the band's background, signing to Fat Wreck Chords, and crimes of passion. Check it out after the jump.
