The Mars Volta are returning to our ears with Noctourniquet, their sixth album, on March 27. We brought you the cover art and tracklist for the record, and now we’ve got quite an intriguing new song for the hearing.
Listen to a The Malkin Jewel below:
By the sound of things, we’ll certainly have a strange beast on our hands when Noctourniquet arrives. Rather than the hyper-kaleidoscopic Latin math-funk explosions we’re used to, on Malkin a seething dream unfolds over squelching, drunken-swagger guitars. The finished album can’t come soon enough.
Noctourniquet was performed by The Mars Volta lineup of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Cedric Bixler-Zavala, Juan Alderete de la Pena, Marcel Rodriguez Lopez, and Deantoni Parks.
