    Mars Volta really blows me away. For as long as I've had de-loused I still love to just sit and listen to the whole thing. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right pleaces but I don't hear all that much about them and other than my group of friend I don't really know anyone else who listens to them. I've seen the pop up a handfull of times on here too. They never have any tour dates posted on there site and that is definitely a band that I would travel to see and I bet their live show is incredible, I saw one on tv one time and it was really cool. But they seem like the type of band that if they did tour it would be in Europe. I also heard a while ago about an Omar Rodriguez-Lopez solo album that was supposedly the soundtrack to some kind of movie that he was making???? Just wondering what other people think of this awesome band and looking for like minded discussion. And what other musically mature bands do yall like to listen to?

    TMV is very, very good. Their new album Francis the Mute should be coming out early next year. I daresay that a tour would follow. The toured two years ago with the ill-conceived ticket with the RHCP and Snoop Dogg. :eek4: Last year, they toured with A Perfect Circle. I believe that they should be headlining themselves this time around.

    Omar's album is a pretty difficult listen; there's not much song structure and hardly any vocals, but it's always interesting to hear musicians' side projects. I have the album in its entirety, so if anyone is interested, I could either host it, or send it to you via AIM. My screen name is in my profile.

    the mars volta is great. one of the best bands in awhile that is for sure. like the last guy said, no tour right now b/c they are finishing their new album. as soon as that is out they are supposedly doing a supporting tour.

    Its the two lead guys from ATD, the other members went on to form sparta, who are dog shit compared to Mars volta and ATD, who are both pretty goddam amazing. Haven't listened to them for a while but I may have to break them out again after reading this thread and being reminded of how great they are.

    I don't really like Sparta at all, it seems like when everyone from ATDI split, Mars Volta progressed with their music and Sparta just kept on making the same shit. Thanks for the news on the tour I'll be looking out

    Exactly! Sparta tried to re-create ATD, whereas the Mars Volta evolved from ATD.

    Haven't listened to them in a while, used to be infatuated with the music though.

    YES!!! please host!! i have a couple of songs and am quite interested in the rest of the album.

    and yea, the mars volta rule. de-loused is the best album to come out this decade thus far. i saw them live with RHCP and it was a bit too much for me, but ya gotta keep in mind it was before they had even released a CD. they are much better now, i've seen videos and read reviews. i cant wait for frances, there will be a 30 min song :eek3: not many bands have had the balls to do that (pink floyd anyone?)

    btw any fans of tmv should check out thecomatorium.com. great fansite, very active forums

    TMV and Sparta are both great, but TMV were more like a "Holy shit! They're good!"
