PRESS RELEASE
The Mars Volta: Octahedron out June 23 on Warner Bros. Records


Last update: 9:39 a.m. EDT April 14, 2009

BURBANK, Calif., Apr 14, 2009 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- The Mars Volta's fifth studio album, Octahedron, will be released June 23 by Warner Bros. Records. The record will be preceded by its first single, "Since We've Been Wrong."
Octahedron follows up last year's The Bedlam In Goliath, which featured "Wax Simulacra," the track that took "Best Hard Rock Performance" honors at the recent 51st Annual Grammy Awards.
Octahedron was written by The Mars Volta--Omar Rodriguez Lopez (music, arrangements, direction) and Cedric Bixler Zavala (vocals, lyrics)--and performed by The Mars Volta group: Marcel Rodriguez Lopez, Thomas Pridgen, John Frusciante, Isaiah Ikey Owens, Juan Alderete de la Pena, Cedric Bixler Zavala and Omar Rodriguez Lopez. Hailed by The New Yorker as "perhaps the most musically adventurous act currently signed to a major label," The Mars Volta formed in 2001. The band's recorded output includes the 2003 debut full length De-Loused In The Comatorium, as well as Frances The Mute (2005), Amputechture (2006) and the previously mentioned The Bedlam In Goliath (2008).
The Mars Volta is confirmed to appear at this year's Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Manchester TN and the second annual Outside Lands Music & Arts Festival in San Francisco. Further U.S. dates will be announced as they are confirmed.

I haven't posted in a while.

But I have to say.

I'm much more excited for the release of octa then I was for bedlam.

Since we've been wrong was my favorite part of the NYE show. Hopefully the studio version translates as well.

Great time to be a Volta fan again.

I always new their news reports about TMV were littered with backhanded remarks...nice to know they're also inaccurate.

I doubt that the lack of Adrian is due to him being otherwise occupied, Omar probably just didn't want him on the record.

It is the duty (!) of the members to do exactly as Omar says :happy:

Yea I thought that was weird too. Maybe Ced and Omar are acknowledging the rest of the band as the mars volta?

Adrian actually is occupied. He has his own album coming out titled "Cu Tann", and if I remember correctly, he will be touring for this around the time TMV will be touring for their new album.
