The Mars Volta have been sorely missed.
Having gone on hiatus in 2012 and subsequently disbanding entirely in 2013, the experimental prog rock band left a hole in their worldwide legion of fans. However, it might not be all that much longer until they finally get more tunes and shows because according to vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala they will in fact be returning soon.
The news came practically out of nowhere when Twitter user @NuggyBunny tweeted to Bixler-Zavala, saying:
I don’t think any band can top off the Mars Volta for me… damn. Every time I listen to them (which is often) I’m just…fucking blown away. @cedricbixler_ @themarsvolta ❣️
Bixler-Zavala responded with words that fans have been dying to hear for six years, saying:
Damn. I wish I had half the confidence your proclamation has! Thank you for the kind words. We will be back soon
