TMV on hiatus

Now it’s official, The Mars Volta are taking a break and enter hiatus. Thanks to dmac27 for bringing this to our attention first. I guess that explains why there wasn’t much to blog about lately.
The info is taken from

Puerto Rican guitarist from the nu-prog rockers The Mars Volta, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, has confirmed that the 6-part group have officially entered in a hiatus, stating that he does not know whether or not the group will reunite, but that it is not something to worry the mind. “I don’t know [if the band will reunite], and I’m not insecure enough to have to ask myself that. It’s like, we’ve done that for ten years, eleven years. Now we’re all doing different things, and everything that we’re doing informs how we express ourselves, and so if that happens then it happens and if it doesn’t it doesn’t.” The spastic guitarist has also confirmed a brand new project along side the drummer from the aforementioned group, Deantoni Parks, titled “Bosnian Rainbows”, from which an album is expected to be released next year. In addition to that, charismatic lead vocalist, Cedric Bixler-Zavala, is currently working on a solo project, which is also expected to be released next year.

Would love if


TMV releases new album out of nowhere while they’re on “hiatus”.

I know Omar has a few laying around.

The source is a misleading article that rewrites statements by Omar in order to make it SEEM like he was announcing an official hiatus.

Also, the article calls TMV “the 6-part group.” How is that for credibility?

Don’t believe this “news” until we get something else to go on.
