Listen to Mars Volta’s First New Song in 10 Years, ‘Blacklight Shine’

The long – awaited Mars Volta is back with a new single called ‘Blacklight Shine’ – listen below.

The Texas-based band released six studio albums between 2003 and 2012 before splitting in 2013 due to a split between founding members Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodríguez-López.

The two quickly resolved and formed a new group, Antemasque. They also refreshed their pre-Mars Volta group, At-the-Drive-In, for a new record in 2017.

Following their recently announced return, The Mars Volta released their first music in 10 years with “Blacklight Shine”. It comes with a short film in black and white, directed by Rodríguez López.

In a statement, singer Bixler-Zavala said the song’s lyrics draw on the idea of ​​”a wave of blackouts washing memories on the shore, a heartbeat that still remembers everything.”

The Mars Volta has ushered in the release of “Blacklight Shine” with the installation of a mysterious box in Los Angeles’ Great Park, which is said to play the band’s new material when inserted.

Fans can visit the “L’YTOME HODORXÍ TELESTERION” draw until 8:00 pm tonight (June 21). Those who are unable to go in person will be able to see it through the official digital experience on July 1, according to a press release.

Details of a potential new album – which would follow “Noctourniquet” 2012 – are yet to come.

The band has been appearing to have reunited on Mars Volta several times in recent years. In 2019, Bixler-Zavala effectively confirmed this when she told fans on Twitter that “it’s happening.” In a new update, Cedric said the reunion would continue to be a major one on the new topic.
