The Mars Volta recently came out with their self-titled effort. The 2022 album was the band’s first studio release in ten years. It marks the band’s clean slate after band leaders Cedic Bixler-Zacala and Rodriguez Lopez reunited. The album exudes all the qualities that made The Mars Volta an iconic rock act but with a twist of pop influences. This album has been a long-time-coming project since fans thought, at some point, there were never going to produce another album again. After the band’s falling out, it took almost nine years for a reunion. Fortunately, the band still had excellent tunes and belted out several bangers, including “Blacklight Shine,” “Graveyard Love,” and “Vigil.” Meanwhile, the album, which received wide critical acclaim, entered the Billboard 200 and peaked at number 10 and 6 on the Top Independent and Top Alternative Albums charts.
The following year, the band released an acoustic take on their latest studio album. Que Dios Te Maldiga Mi Corazon was dropped in 2023, and it was led by the single “Blank Condolences.” in a statement, guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez explained the band is starting over. “I feel like The Mars Volta is finally beginning — that’s why the last album was self-titled because we’ve finally stripped everything away and arrived at what the whole concept was at the beginning,” Rodríguez-López said in a press release. “And this acoustic version comes from a profound place, with its own meaning, philosophy, and reason for being.”
The band’s last two efforts follow a string of commercially successful studio albums. In 2012, the band’s sixth effort, Noctourniquet, entered four Billboard charts, peaking at numbers 15 and 3 on the Billboard 200 and Top Tastemaker Albums. Besides the U.S., the album also entered the charts in 14 other countries, making it a phenomenal international hit.
In 2008, the band released their highest-charting studio album to date. The Bedlam in Goliath peaked at number 3 on the Billboard 200 and entered the charts in 17 countries.
If you’re keen on seeing The Mars Volta on stage this fall, you better score tickets to their most highly-anticipated show of the tour. Their Red Rocks Amphitheater concert is expected to be packed to the brim, so better hurry and score tickets now before it’s too late!
