When The Mars Volta broke up earlier this year, it was only a matter of time before we started seeing new music from its two masterminds, guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López and singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala. Though the former has been touring with Bosnian Rainbows for a while now, the latter had been partially hiding whatever musical project he was working on. Now, that as changed, as Cedric Bixler-Zavala just announced his new musical project: Zavalaz.
Though very little is known regarding the project at the moment, the band’s website already has a fair amount of tour dates announced. As for the band’s lineup, it includes Bixler-Zavala himself on vocals and guitar, former Them Hills / Hella guitarist Dan Elkan, drummer Greg Rogove, and former The Mars Volta bassist Juan Alderete. Though it’s not being called a solo project at the moment, we can assume that it’s something along those lines.
More news on Zavalaz as it becomes available, naturally.
