Damn. Reality hits you hard bro. : (

I am hoping he's trolling us hard or something but this seems to be for real.

I do want to hear what Omar has to say because there are two sides to every story and we haven't heard his side of things. Cedric, by his own admission, isn't telling us the whole story, saying we should ask him in person what really went down.

If they never play together again I am very glad I got to seem them live as many times as I was able to and to have had so much fun listening to their music.

It sucks for all the fans who never got to see them though.

Not trolling. Definitely true. Definitely real shit being said. Let's be honest with ourselves, The Mars Volta has not been The Mars Volta since Thomas left. And they kinda sucked after Adrian left. And it's pretty apparent that Omar hasn't given a fuck about the band since 2008.

But 2001-2008....those were eight fucking fun years, no? Glad to have been a part of them. Truly something special, and everyone who was there (especially Cedric and O) knows it.

On the bright side, we can now look forward to a flood of analysis and retrospective now that the band is finished. And, now the space is opened up for the next Mars Volta.

136 people reading right now and barely any talk of the confirmation of the band down for... Just like The Mars Volta, The Comatorium's been dead for years. There's zero talk on Omar's new albums and Azul, Mi Dientes.

(Don't look at my join date)

Edit: Thomas is being an asshole.

Been a fan before the right before the Frances era, and my goodness, all the memories; the music they put out, the other bands they exposed me too, the thoughtful ideas, the music videos, the concerts, and ultimately and what it took to be an artist and expand the boundaries of music. I thank the band very much for what they've done for me personally and others out there.

I wish I could say this and happily walk away! AAAUUGH. I ain't got nothing, my life was just a lie!

Leave the coma up, I still want to talk about Omar and this is where I get all of my news. We can have a Mars Volta forum that doesn't talk about Mars Volta.

I think I'm done now. It's 12:36, I gotta go to bed. This news struck me at the right hour -_-

Well I'm glad I got to see them live many times, and during the glory days too, first saw them in 2004. Great memories! Deloused, Frances, and Amp were a huge part of my life. Albums they released after that didn't make me feel the same way.

Maybe Bosnian releasing their first single today pushed Cedric over the edge. I don't think twitter is the best way to say everything he said, but it sounds like he's pretty frustrated and pissed off at how everything went down.

Bosnian Rainbows is horrible.

Omar, don't forget who got you where you are today. Your fans, and i think its safe to say, that you are now the enemy.
