The Mars Volta have confirmed that they will be releasing a new album in 2012. Frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala has spoken out through social media websites (after the announcement that Sony would be using The Mars Volta’s new song ‘Zed and Two Naught’s’ for their new baseball game ‘MLB 12 The Show’) saying:
“New Volta almost done. Vocals done. Just trying to rebutcher it and finish guitar. In studio until this week then on to Mexico to add more quantum entanglement to it. The sonogram of the little beast is looking very good”.
Date of the release is still unknown, as is the album title. It will follow up their 2009 release Octahedron .
The Texan band caused a stir with fans last year, after label Warner Bros’ apparent lack of haste to promote the new Volta album.
