Breaking more than a decade break, The Mars Volta reawaken from their lengthy hiatus with the release of their new single and short film for “Blacklight Shine”, streaming now at this link: https://open.spotify.com/track/4Z9qsdjabSd7kd92FvQij0.

“Blacklight Shine” pulses with Caribbean rhythms and showcases guitarist/composer Omar Rodríguez-López and singer/lyricist Cedric Bixler-Zavala with pop melodies driving Bixler-Zavala’s story.

The lyrics of “Blacklight Shine” help to illuminate the idea of “a wave of rolling blackouts washing memories onto shore, a heartbeat that still remembers everything,” explains Bixler-Zavala.
