The Mars Volta are back with another new song following their return from a decade-long hiatus. “Graveyard Love” arrives with a new short film directed by Omar Rodríguez-López that depicts various scenes in Puerto Rico. Watch it below.
The song follows the announcement of the band's return after a decade-long hiatus and the release of "Blacklight Shine".
"They will seek your ruin, and burn your lands, because if they can't have you, no one can," explains Cedric Bixler-Zavala on the lyrics of the new song. "Graveyard Love", much like "Blacklight Shine", invites the listener to hear the bigger picture. Swarming synths envelope the song like vines, diving deeper into the story THE MARS VOLTA continues to tell.
Last month, THE MARS VOLTA announced its first live shows in ten years. Dates have been added to select cities due to overwhelming demand. Today, the band has added a new date on October 9 at The Eagles Ballroom in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
