The Mars Volta announce first album in 10 years, share video for new single “Vigil”

Mars Volta shared details of their new self-titled album today. The group’s first LP in 10 years will arrive on September 16 via Cloud Hill. Along with the news, the band shared a new single, “Vigil”, which follows the previously released cuts “Blacklight Shine” and “Graveyard Love”. Like those songs, the song comes with an accompanying short film directed by guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López, which describes “the beauty of life in Puerto Rico and lashes out against the colonial rule of the United States”.
