They should do a billy corgan pumpkins ting and hire a bunch of kids like half their age who do twitter auditions or something. Or just come out, the o and c, to a backing track on a sony discman, and tell jokes and amusing volter anecdotes between karaoke versions. Or just use holograms and video screens of their former band members, who weren't asked, didn't sign release forms for that and then want their money, thus killing dur marrs volter again again.

It actually bores me. I'd rather they did something brand new and supercool, than recycling dead bands on cynical two year cycles and festival circuits.

If I had to guess, this is why Jon doesn't want to be involved. Honestly wouldn't be mad if they got Blake Fleming.

Omar and Cedric should start a podcast called The Mars Volta where they talk shit every week and have people like Jon and Eva on as guests and make prank calls to Juan and shit. After all, it's 2018 and nobody listens to music anymore.

like... antemasque? really, guys they didn't even reunite and you're starting this "hurr durr" yourselves. this is the mars volta forum. how come a TMV forum not want for TMV to reunite? You don't know the lineup, what they're going to play and what the new album will sound like and you're already judging it. So if Jon was in it you wouldn't call it a dead band and it would be actually be something new??? I think it'd be the opposite unfortunately...

 

 

Seriously though, They should hire unknown guys with Jon, Juan and Ikey cardboard masks. "TRUE FANZ" will be pleased and won't notice

Because TMV used to be about the unusual.

i'd like to see them do something along the lines of this new flaming lips song by song breakdown podcast, but they've never been that open about the process

I'm sure Cedric would do it, especially if it pays well. For Omar to join, it would require some narrative about it being part of the process of opening up to the world, strengthen his bond with a close friend, tapping into the creative dimension in previously untrodden paths, experiencing the nakedness of exposing yourself in front of an audience, to ultimately be a more complete person and closer to god.

 

Also, fresh "O's dick on..." material for Patreon subscribers!

how do you know TMV will be usual??? in fact TMV still doesn't exist, how can you judge what you have not heard and or/seen. Would it be "UNUSUAL" only if Jon returned??? this is ridiculous. O&C didnt do anything at all yet and you guys are already criticizing. Unusual also doesnt depend on the lineup. You dont think they can make unusual with deantoni? I just feel like Omar finally found the perfect drummer

I hope it's Dean on drums and they just pick up where they left off. Cedric probably can't sing much pre Nocto. So write a new album and primarily tour that and Nocto

 

I love Jon and would be 100% cool with him being back. but I really don't want to hear all those old deloused songs again. it's not going to sound as good.

 

New stuff please

To be fair, the ATDI reunion wasn’t anything incredible. They’re just lackadaisically doing their own thing and I’m happy they’re able to do so and make money off of it. But if there’s any correlation to that and this resurgence of Volta, then it would be at least reasonable to not have high hopes and just see what happens. Honestly they haven’t made anything mind-blowing since 2012 and that’s being a lik generous to Noctorniquet, though I was in 8th grade at the time. 2012 solo Omar was pretty fucking great though, I’ve always said that could’ve been stellar with Cedric writing and performing vox
