The Mars Volta prep ‘Graveyard Love’ single, short film

New dates added to first tour in ten years

The Mars Volta will release another new single called “Graveyard Love” on Friday, July 8th. The song follows the announcement of the band’s return after a decade long hiatus and the release of “Blacklight Shine,” which was accompanied by a short film.

“They will seek your ruin, and burn your lands, because if they can’t have you, no one can,” explains Cedric Bixler-Zavala on the story of the new song.

A short film for the song will also be released on Friday.

Last month, an audio-visual art installation was erected in Los Angeles’ Grand Park. Inside of L’ytome Hodorxi Telesterion visitors were taken on a full, immersive journey to outer space, and where “Blacklight Shine” was heard for the first time by the public. The experience inside was intended to provoke self-reflection, with the single guiding fans on a journey through endless galaxies and back down to earth, to oneself. The experience is now available online.

The Mars Volta announced their first live shows in ten years with 13 dates selling out. Due to overwhelming demand, dates have been added to select cities including Dallas, New York City, Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles.
