The Mars Volta will be road testing their new album at Friday's Big Day Out. But there is little chance you'll recognise it when it finally makes its way into record shops.

As Mars Volta guitarist and band leader Omar Rodríguez-López explains over the phone from Belgium, he composes and discards albums at a startling rate.

Since the release of 2009's Octohedron, he has already written and binned two albums worth of material.

But he might just have something that will make its way onto their 8pm main stage slot at Auckland's iconic summer festival, just before the headlining act Muse.

"In between every record there's an unreleased one," Rodríguez-López said. "Once I did De-Loused in the Comatorium I recorded one record and that didn't feel right. After Frances the Mute I recorded one-and-a-half.

"It happens all the time, composing, recording, all that fun stuff, you can't really stop it. I record bits and pieces everywhere; I've recorded in New Zealand, I've recorded a lot in Australia and recorded in Japan.

"Now I've recorded another one and I'm handing that one over to (vocalist) Cedric (Bixler-Zavala) to start writing his lyrics and we'll see how far this one gets."

I bet that the unrealesed record he did between de-loused and frances is probably much better than octahedron. I wish i could hear it

I'm really skeptical. The 18 month gap in between albums makes me a sad panda, and if January 2011 is the earliest they can release a new album, seeing new material this early would be weird.
However, if this is true, I will be a happy man.

the aus/nz tour usually gets a pretty good deal, glad im seeing them twice this tour. But the proof will be in the pudding, like was said before, it seems a stretch to pull 'new songs' and any 'real' new album info that we havnt seen before from this short interview.
