Yes, the rumors are true, the Mars Volta broke up (they're not just on hiatus as previously announced, according to the band's singer Cedric Bixler). BUT Omar Rodriguez-Lopez has a new band. Here's Bosnian Rainbows first single 'Torn Maps' (stream/download below). The band also includes Deantoni Parks (remember Afropunk Festival alums Kudu?!) on drums, Nicci Kasper on keys and Teri Gender-Bender on vocals.
Rodriguez-Lopez says their debut LP is already finished and will be released this year. - L.
