The Mars Volta is rejoining the ranks, as their newest album Noctourniquet is set to take to the air March 26. They were inspired by childrens' nursery rhymes, Greek mythology, and Solomon Grundy. Noctourniquet is meant to be an experimental album, drawing upon the three previously said influences. For those who are strangers to The Mars Volta 's music, they are a progressive, hard rock, American band. A quick listen to any of their songs, you would immediately classify them as metal, but I would not dare to lump them into just that category. [...]

Como ya lo habíamos anunciado , los chicos de The Mars Volta lanzarán a la venta su última producción titulada Noctourniquet el 27 de marzo. Hoy, unos días antes, podemos escucharla online por completo. Ya pudimos escuchar varios cortes de este sexto disco de la banda. Recordemos que han pasado tres años desde su última producción, Octhaedron en el 2009, por lo que los fanáticos están más que ansiosos. Tampoco podemos olvidar que este año reúne a los músicos [...]
When Cedric Bixler-Zavala from the Mars Volta and At the Drive-In, he comes back with a vengeance. First, the supergroup news. Cedric, alongside Christian Eric Beaulieu (Triclops!, Liquid Indian), have created Anywhere. The supergroup will include Rachel Fannan (ex-Sleepy Sun) and contributions from Mike Watt (The Stooges, fIREHOSE, Minutemen). Listen to their first single below, "Anywhere," that will be apart of Record Store Day 2012. Speaking of RSD 2012, At the Drive-In will be releasing their classic EP, "Vaya," but only be sold at Coachella. Bummer, right? Don't fret, because in June the EP will be sold at [...]

Tal vez lo último que uno se podría esperar de una banda formada por miembros de The Mars Volta, At The Drive-In o The Stooges es "punk acústico" . Sin embargo, Anywhere ha querido definirse con esa etiqueta, que más que definir su sonido, sirve para llamar la atención. El grupo está compuesto por el vocalista de The Mars Volta y At The Drive-In , Cedric Bixler-Zavala, el guitarrista de Triclops! , Christian Eric Beaulieu, y el bajista Mike Watt (The Stooges, fIREHOSE, Minutemen). Los tres han decidido unir fuerzas en lo [...]
It's the middle of the week, and what better way to get over the hump day slump than by cranking some new tunes? Onward... 3 Inches of Blood just posted a new track on their Facebook page, and it's a tribute to the "Metal Woman." It's a pretty rad track, and making me anticipate their ...
The Mars Volta are dropping some new music into your iPod next week (unless you downloaded the leaked version already) in the form of their newest album, Noctourniquet . But you can head on over to Rolling Stone 's website to stream the album in its entirety before the album is released. This is the band's first album since 2009 and is their sixth studio album. It's out on March 26th.
Since the Mars Volta announced that they would be putting out a record even as Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodríguez-López prepped the At The Drive-In comeback, we've heard a couple songs from the new release called " The Malkin Jewel " and " Zed And Two Naughts ." Now, it's out on the web. Head to Rolling Stone for the stream. Noctourniquet is out 3/27 on Warner Bros.
Check out the title track from the supergroup's self-titled full-length.
The frantic, guitar-driven, & intense band The Mars Volta are ready to release their sixth studio album, Noctourniquet . I remember when their first album came out thinking these guys are incredible and couldn't believe how they really had no fans. Well times have changed and these guys are a big favorite in the rock scene. This album also happens to be the bands first since 2009, but the wait for new tunes wasn't too long. The record features 13 tracks and will be released next week on March 26th. Luckily for us, [...]
The Mars Volta are set to release their sixth studio album, Noctourniquet, the band's first since 2009.

That band has already played a few select gigs, and the frontmen have said there will be more live dates in 2012. Noctourniquet, which is inspired by mythologies from the Greeks to the Superman saga, will be released on March 26th. Read more [...]
Last year, the guitarist of acid punk band Triclops!, one Christian Eric Beaulieu, pulled together a thoroughly impressive super group of musicians to form Anywhere . Rounded out by Cedric Bixler-Zavala (The Mars Volta, At The Drive-In) on vocals/drums, legendary punk bassist Mike Watt (Minutemen, fIREHOSE), and guest vocalist Rachel Fannan (ex-Sleepy Sun), Anywhere released two limited 7” singles which sold out with haste. Now, the group is set to release their self-titled debut full-length on May 14th via ATP Recordings. Beaulieu, under the solo moniker Liquid Indian, was experimenting with acoustic Indian raga music when he [...]

While a significant amount of press has been focused on the surprise reunion of At the Drive-In , two members of that band continue to work on promoting their own new album as The Mars Volta . Guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López and vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala have been answering fan-submitted questions in a series of YouTube videos as they gear up for the release of Noctourniquet on March 27, 2012 .
The Mars Volta has released another new song from its upcoming LP. With the tracks released so far, this one included, they seem to have found a new focus, and that focus seems is far less self-indulgent. There is something immediately accessible about this song, but it still maintains the progressive and experimental edge that The Mars Volta is known for. The vocals keep their emotion, but this time around the lyrics are at least somewhat decipherable. Musically, they do a fantastic job of building with steady, kick-heavy drumming and bright synthesizers. It builds wonderfully into the chorus where the [...]
