LISTEN AND WATCH THE SHORT FILM FOR ‘VIGIL’.

After the release of two new singles following a decade long hiatus, The Mars Volta, have unveiled details surrounding their seventh upcoming full length album ‘The Mars Volta’ due for release on September 16, 2022. The new album bravely challenges everything you thought you knew about them, delivering their most exciting, most accessible, and most sophisticated music yet. The band also releases a third single and short film for ‘Vigil’, with Cedric Bixler-Zavala noting “And the obits wait for a perfect name”. The new album shakes loose some of band’s long-standing shibboleths, with only two tracks lasting longer than four minutes, and the dizzying, abrasive prog stylings of earlier albums absent. ‘The Mars Volta’ pulses with subtle brilliance, Caribbean rhythms underpinning sophisticated, turbulent song craft. This is guitarist/composer Omar Rodríguez-López and singer/lyricist Cedric Bixler-Zavala at their most mature, most concise, most focused. Their sound and fury channeled to greatest effect.
