The Mars Volta sideshows

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 “...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 –  “stripped-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

Tickets on sale Monday 16th November
