New Mars Volta Album and Drummer

The Mars Volta are a band that just amaze me with their creative and artistic talent. I was a huge fan of At The Drive-In with their on the edge-garage rock ballads. As the story goes, after the loss of a band member to drugs the surviving members formed The Mars Volta and morphed into a theraputic collective that holds nothing back. Their first album pierced my ears and heart with such raw pain that they quickly became one of my favorite bands. Their first album, Deloused in the Comatrorium stands within my top 5 of all time. As Panda Toes reports they are finishing up touches on their latest product, a 'concept' album based on the vision and spirit of Omar giving Cedric a gift. Slated to be released on January 29th, 2008 there is sure to be a lot of talk surrounding the skills of their new drummer, Thomas Pridgen.

Deloused in the Comatorium is NOT the Mars Volta's 1st album... Frances the Mute is. Please, if you do not have it as of yet, GET IT! You will be very happy. :)

Also, Octehedron is their latest and by far, one of their best. Definitely a step up from Bedlam.

That is all. :)
