The Mars Volta Reunion Is “Happening,” Cedric Bixler-Zavala Details In Since-Deleted Tweet Thread

first_imgThe Mars Volta could be close to reuniting with some music in the near future. According to a tweet shared by singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala over the holiday weekend, the next phase of the band is indeed on the horizon.Over the weekend a fan tweeted “I dream of you guys giving TMV a new chapter.” Bixler-Zavala responded with, “It’s happening.”Potential confirmation of The Mars Volta’s return since they disbanded in 2013 actually came earlier this month, when Bixler-Zavala initially stated, “We are in the kitchen finding new ways to through curve balls,” in regards to a fan inquiry as to whether they would ever do a tour based around their 2003 debut, De-Loused In The Comatorium. Bixler-Zavala had also revealed in a social media post shared on May 4th that he was in the studio with Mars Volta guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López.In a series of additional tweets from Bixler-Zavala which have since been deleted in response to the news of their potential reunion, he 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 band’s last studio album, Noctourniquet, arrived back in March 2012.[H/T Pitchfork]last_img read more
