The Mars Volta returns after 10 years with ‘Blacklight Shine’ and announces US tour

The Mars Volta

The Mars Volta, perhaps the best rock band since Led Zeppelin, has made their long-awaited comeback with a new single called ‘Blacklight Shine’, which comes with a black and white short film directed by Omar Rodríguez-López.

The Texas-formed band released six studio albums between 2003 and 2012 before disbanding due to a falling out between founding members Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodríguez-López. The duo quickly made amends and formed a new supergroup, Antemasque, which went on for just one album.

Later, in 2017, they were also reunited by At-the-Drive-In, their original band, but what fans were waiting for was the return of The Mars Volta – which finally happens after a decade of rumors!

In a statement, frontman Bixler-Zavala said the lyrics to ‘Blacklight Shine’ delve into the idea of ​​”a rolling wave of blackouts washing away memories on the beach, a heartbeat that still remembers everything.” Check out!

Mars Volta previewed ‘Blacklight Shine’ by setting up a mysterious installation in Los Angeles’ Grand Park that plays new material from the band when you walk in. Fans can visit the attraction ‘L’YTOME HODORXÍ TELESTERION’ until 8pm tonight (June 21). Those unable to attend in person will be able to see it through an official digital experience on July 1, according to a press release.
