The Mars Volta broke up in 2013 after founding members Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodríguez-López, had a fall out. Bixler-Zavala had stated at the time of the breakup: “What am I supposed to do be some progressive house wife that’s cool with watching their partner go fuck other bands?” “The falling out had been four years in the making, so the final announcement on my part was really just to let the children know that Mom and Dad were splitting up.

After At The Drive-In‘s latest album’s release, Bixler-Zavala is teasing The Mars Volta’s return, replying to a fan on Twitter : “Thank you for the kind words. We will be back soon”.
