The Mars Volta sideshows
Wed 4th Nov, 2009 in Local News
The Mars Volta is set to bring the bombast at three huge sideshows this January whilst in Australia for the Big Day Out. Existing purely as the experimental egress for the weird and wonderful minds of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavala, The Mars Volta has continued to defy expectations with the release of each successive album.
The band’s fifth and most recent release Octahedron was described by our FasterLouder reviewer as “Ã¢â‚¬Â¦a bold step forward for a duo who are always miles in front.” Fans will be pleased to hear that to help bring this album to life in a live setting, the band is touring as a – œstripped-back’ six- piece with rumoured to be fired drummer Thomas Pridgen.
FasterLouder is proud to present The Mars Volta:
Monday 18 January – Tivoli, Brisbane
Wednesday 20 January – Hordern Pavilion, Sydney
Monday 25 January – Festival Hall, Melbourne
