The Mars Volta haunts the fall season… with a tour

What started with a buzzing performance at Bonnaroo last month and continued with the release of its hot comeback album, Octahedron, The Mars Volta shows no signs of slowing down. Instead the afro-sporting jamboree plans to march ahead all the way into the early autumn with another string of dates.

Centered around forthcoming festival appearances at Outside Lands in San Francisco and Monolith Festival in Denver, the 13-date trek runs from late August through mid-September before ultimately wrapping up in San Antonio. Not hitting your town? Don’t make any epic travel plans just yet, as additional dates are said to be forthcoming.

For those interested, tickets for the two Los Angeles shows are currently available via, with remaining dates to go on sale both July 31st and August 1st. For the wealthy minority willing to shell out a few extra bucks, pre-sales for the double LP of Octahedron are available from Rodriguez Lopez Productions.
