The Mars Volta have shared a new short film to accompany their latest song, ‘Graveyard Love’ – watch it below.
The song, released earlier this week, follows their comeback single ‘Blacklight Shine’, which was released last month as the band shared details of a US tour after a decade-long hiatus.
Cedric Bixler-Zavala sings on the new track: “You better walk behind me, walk behind me again” and “How many times have we burned it all down?/ Puffs of smoke, call it graveyard love/ Walk behind me, walk these hallways again.”
“They will seek your destruction and burn your lands, because if they can’t have you, no one can,” Bixler-Zavala said of the song’s lyrics in a press release.
Now, the band has shared a new short film directed by Omar Rodríguez-López that depicts various scenes in Puerto Rico. You can watch it here:
The Texas-formed band released six studio albums between 2003 and 2012 before splitting due to a dispute between founding members Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodríguez-López.
The pair quickly made amends, however, and formed a new group, Antemasque. They also revamped their pre-Mars Volta outfit, At-the-Drive-In, for a new record in 2017.
Details of a potential new album, which would follow 2012’s ‘Noctourniquet’, have yet to emerge.
