The Mars Volta set to release new album this March?
Earlier today our friends at DIY broke the news that Mars Volta frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala had announced on the bands YouTube channel that a new album is “just around the corner."
Excited, right? Well don't be. Actually, you can. Confused? It appears that that comment is in fact an old comment, but by all accounts a new album will be released in March, despite of that comment being rehashed.
The album is supposedly being released on March 27th, with the first single being 'In Absentia' (released on March 6th).
We'll keep you posted when we get more info.
