The Mars Volta have announced a run of show dates in Europe that will take place this June and some shows supporting Red Hot Chili Peppers.
These shows come on the heels of a wildly prolific year for the band. In September of 2022, they released ‘The Mars Volta,’ their seventh studio album and first new music in a decade via Clouds Hill Recordings. It was critically acclaimed and reignited guitarist/composer Omar Rodríguez-López and singer/lyricist Cedric Bixler-Zavala – finding them at the most mature, most concise, and most focused place they had ever been.
They also embarked on a nationwide tour, which had them performing live as The Mars Volta for the first time in ten years. The shows sold out quickly with many cities adding extra nights due to overwhelming demand, which also sold out. UK and EU pre-sale for the upcoming headline shows with support from Teri Gender Bender will go on sale on Wednesday, February 22nd at 10 am local, while general on-sale goes live this Friday, February 24th at 10 am local time via the band’s website – www.themarsvoltaofficial.com.
