THE MARS VOLTA have released a new single and short film for “Graveyard Love” out now. The song follows the announcement of the band’s return after a decade long hiatus and the release of “Blacklight Shine”.
“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 lyrics of the new song. “Graveyard Love”, much like “Blacklight Shine” invites the listener to hear the bigger picture. Swarming synths envelope the song like vines, diving deeper into the story The Mars Volta continue to tell.
The band recently announced an online version of “L’YTOME HODORXÍ TELESTERION”, an online version of the #VOLTACUBE that mysteriously appeared in Los Angeles’ Grand Park. Inside of “L’YTOME HODORXÍ 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, which includes a virtual scavenger hunt for hidden treasures in your city, can be found at this link.
