It sounds like The Mars Volta will be back ‘soon’, though soon is a relative term – especially when dealing with The Mars Volta.
Vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala recently tweeted a fan, claiming the group would “be back soon”. The Mars Volta broke up in 2012, with Bixler-Zavala currently focused on the now reactivated At The Drive In, alongside guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez.
Damn. I wish I had half the confidence your proclamation has! Thank you for the kind words. We will be back soon

However, Bixler followed up the tweet explaining that “it’ll be a while before that ship takes off” as he’s still got “a lot of ground to cover” with At The Drive In. Patience, everyone.
I appreciate the rabid infection that spreads when anything Volta is discussed, but it’ll be a while b4 that ship takes off. Still got a lot of ground to cover w my current family @AtTheDriveIn all I did was praise a fans enthusiasm & casually mention volta being a thing.
