Breaking more than a decade of omertà, The Mars Volta reawaken from their lengthy hiatus with the release of their new single and short film for “Blacklight Shine”.

“Blacklight Shine” pulses with subtle brilliance, Caribbean rhythms underpinning sophisticated, turbulent songcraft. The song showcases guitarist/composer Omar Rodríguez-López and singer/lyricist Cedric Bixler-Zavala at their most accessible with pop melodies driving Bixler-Zavala’s story.

The lyrics of “Blacklight Shine” help to illuminate the idea of “a wave of rolling blackouts washing memories onto shore, a heartbeat that still remembers everything,” explains Bixler-Zavala.

On Tour After 10 Years!
