The Texas-based band released six albums between 2003 and 2012 before disbanding due to a rift between founding members Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodríguez-López.

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

The band is understood to have reunited on Mars Volta several times in recent years. In 2019, Bixler-Zavala effectively confirmed this when she told fans online that “it’s happening.” In another update, he said the reunion would hear them heavily on the new material.. Meanwhile, Bixler-Zavala talked about the band’s revival single, ‘Blacklight Shine,’ earlier this summer, and the lyrics of the songs dealing with the idea of ​​”a wave of blackouts washing memories on the shore, a heartbeat still remembering everything”.
