Freshly reunited rockers The Mars Volta are back with another new song called “Graveyard Love.” Listen to the single ahead.

Like “Blacklight Shine,” before it, “Graveyard Love” show Mars Volta have returned from their decade-long hiatus with quite a different vibe. The track is a mesh of buzzing, pulsing electronics and synths, a vocal loop cut throughout as taut drums keep up beneath it all. “You better walk behind me, walk behind me again,” sings Cedric Bixler-Zavala in a voice that is both sorrowful and pleading. “How many times have we burnt it all down?/ Plumes of smoke, call it graveyard love/ Walk behind me, walk these hallways again.”

“They will seek your ruin, and burn your lands, because if they can’t have you, no one can,” Bixler-Zavala said of the song’s lyrics in a press release.
