yes, but the info is: “It’s titled Octahedron and it’s been produced by guitarist Omar Rodriguez himself. A press release from the band’s label promises it’s “much more accessible than the previous four” Mars Volta LPs.”

Please don’t do a more accesible album!

“In music theory, the hexany is a six-note just intonation scale, with the notes placed on the vertices of an octahedron. The notes are arranged so that every edge of the octahedron joins together notes that make a consonant dyad, and every face joins together the notes of a consonant triad.

This makes a “musical geometry” with the geometrical form of the octahedron. It has eight just intonation triads in a scale of only six notes, and each triad has two notes in common with three of the other chords, arranged in a musically symmetrical fashion due to the symmetry of the octahedron it is based on.”

-wiki on octahedrons…

I think it’s an interesting title.

he should call it UNOHEDRON since none of the band actually plays on this record aside from the frums and vocals of course
