The Mars Volta are reuniting

The internet was set a blaze over the weekend when it was discovered that The Mars Volta would be reuniting and possibly releasing new material in the near future.

Both original members Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodríguez-López are said to be involved in the return, and have made some statements about their plans when they do return.

Speaking on Twitter, Bixler-Zavala stated, "What it’s NOT going to be is your ‘fav member lineup’ playing their ‘classic records’ in full etc. Maybe we’ll play old shit, who knows how we feel. Just remember our past campaigns never relied on playing requests or going fully backwards ...it’s new shit, new people, left turns , tangent inconsistencies, mazapan dreams and churro wishes. I will say this though, when ORL played me a grip of new shit I fucking cried. Like Claire Daines in Romeo & Juliet cried. Yeah it was fucking weird. It’s in its infancy right now. No deadlines, no ball tripping, no drama, just 2 grown ass men using essential oils and bold new perfumes shooting ideas and scooting their ass across the fucking lawn trying to get rid of these worms."

The Mars Volta's last studio album 'Noctourniquet' arrived in 2012 with the group parting ways the following year.
