The Mars Volta new download single

The Mars Volta are set to unveil their brand new single 'The Widow' as a download-only exclusive through iTunes on Tuesday 8th February.

'The Widow' is the first new material from Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavalas since their 2003 debut album 'De-Loused In the Comatorium' bought 21st Century rock music to its knees.

It is a stunning introduction to the intoxicating world of 'Frances The Mute', an album due for release on Universal/ Island on 21st February 2005.

The Mars Volta is neither a concept album band nor a prog band. Sure, they excel at both, but Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Cedric Bixler-Zavalas formed the Mars Volta in 2001 in order to dispose of labels and limitations of any kind, to move beyond genres strip-mined into obsolescence–be they dinosaur prog or 2-D punk.

'The Widow's beautiful accompanying video was created and directed by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez himself.
