The Mars Volta

Afro clad progsters

Formed out of the ashes of cult post-hardcore act At The Drive In, El Paso based weirdos The Mars Volta have crafted a very unique style of avant-prog. Famed for their wildly improvisational live shows and loosely concept-based albums, the band are often accused of self indulgence - an accusation fans would protest wildly at. Centred on Mexican-American duo Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala the band exist in their own universe, and long may they remain.
