Mars Volta Unveil Brand New Single As An Exclusive Download
The Mars Volta are set to unveil their brand new single 'The Widow' as a download-only exclusive through iTunes on Tuesday 8th February.
'The Widow' is the first new material from Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavalas since their 2003 debut album 'De-Loused In the Comatorium' brought 21st Century rock music to its knees.
It is a stunning introduction to the intoxicating world of 'Frances The Mute', an album due for release on Universal/Island on February 21.
The Mars Volta is neither a concept album band nor a prog band. They excel at both. Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavalas formed the Mars Volta in 2001 in order to dispose of labels and limitations of any kind, to move beyond genres strip-mined into obsolescence--be they dinosaur prog or 2-D punk.
The video for 'The Widow' was created and directed by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez himself.
‘Frances The Mute’ is set for release on February 21 with ‘The Widow’ following on March 7. CD Times has reviewed 'Frances The Mute' which you can read here. To support these releases The Mars Volta will be playing the following UK dates in March:
9 - Birmingham Academy
11 - Glasgow, Barrowlands
12 - Manchester, Academy
13 - Brixton, Academy
