The Mars Volta's Cedric Bixler-Zavala sounds off on recent vinyl reissues for the band -- commenting, "some idiot is pocketing the money" and "there will be a proper reissue of early Volta records [...] when we do release the early volta records they will be far superior in packaging and we will get the money."

Apparently Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala (The Mars Volta) have buried the hatchet and formed a new band - Antemasque. They've also recruited former Mars Volta member Dave Elitch on drums and the legendary Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers on bass. You can watch a short teaser video in the replies.

Stereogum have written up an article on the "The Rise, Demise, and Legacy" of The Mars Volta.
Still, I can’t shake the feeling that day marked an untimely death for the Mars Volta. They were a special band that perished too young.

Cedric Bixler-Zavala (The Mars Volta) recently was interviewed on Drowned in Sound and released an interesting tidbit after being questioned about an At the Drive-In reunion...
From the InterviewI don't know what to say about that really. We've been making amends with a lot of the members and having some really good talks with them. And we've been trying to get our financial business in order because a lot of people have been ripping off that band really badly...as far as the business side goes. I wouldn't mind it. Y'know, it might happen, we just have to iron out a lot of personal things. A lot of it we've dealt with already and I've apologised for a lot of things I've said and the way...
