The Mars Volta Announce First Album In 10 Years

The Mars Volta have officially announced their first album in 10 years. The self-titled comeback project will feature 14 tracks, including previously released singles “Blacklight Shine” and “Graveyard Love,” and the just-released "Vigil."

All three of the new tracks are notable for breaking free from the prog-rock sound that classified the duo in its early years, and that's not a coincidence. According to a press release, “the new album shakes loose some of band’s long-standing shibboleths, with only two tracks lasting longer than four minutes, and the dizzying, abrasive prog stylings of earlier albums absent.”

The Mars Volta is slated for a September 16 release and can be pre-ordered here. Listen to "Vigil" above.

After the album's release, the band plans to tour North America. See a full list of tour dates below.
