The Mars Volta releasing new album, Noctourniquet, in March
So even though At The Drive-In is reuniting this year, The Mars Volta are still putting out new music. In this case, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala will release the band’s sixth album, Noctourniquet, on March 27th.
According to a press release from the band, the new album has 13 tracks and was inspired by “disparate elements including ’80s UK alt-rockers The Godfathers, Superman comic nemesis Solomon Grundy and the Greek myth of Hyacinthus.” Don’t these guys know that Solomon Grundy is also a BATMAN villain? Duh.
