The one time I saw them they got up on stage and said something along the lines of "Everyone says our newer albums suck, and we agree."

I have a feeling they'll start new projects and make good music individually

Well, they stopped writing songs. I loved them at one time but they became increasingly more and more obscure.

Omar constantly has about 10 side projects at any given time. The guy puts out an ungodly amount of good, interesting, creative music every year. RIP TMV.

They just started to try to be too proggy.

I saw them 3 times and it was great every time. I heard a rumor that Omar already had the Mars Volta's next 10 albums already complete. Hope he releases them if thats true.

They announced an indefinite hiattus months ago... but I just checked and you are right. shite has gone down between Omar and Cedric. It makes me kind of sad because this was a band that changed my whole perspective on music.

This is from Cedric's twitter:
quote:

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
Thank u 2 all VOLTA fans u deserved more especially after the way u rooted for us on this album. I tried my hardest to keep it going (cont-)

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
But Bosnian Rainbows was what we all got instead. I can't sit here and pretend any more. I no longer am a member of Mars Volta. (cont-)

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
I honestly thank all of you for buying our records and coming to our shows. You guys were a blast to play in front of

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
We could never had done it with out you. My dream was to get us to the point were Jon Theodore and Ikey Owens came back but sadly it's over

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
Thank u a million times over for ever giving a frick about our band

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
For the record I tried my hardest to get a full scale North American tour going for Noctourniquet but Omar did not want to.

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
I guess a break from mars volta means starting another band and ignoring all the support the fans gave us. I tried my hardest guys

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
All I can do is move forward with my music and just be happy that mars volta ever happened at all. God Damn we had a blast. Thank u again

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
I just feel really guilty for not even really saying the truth because a hiatus is just an insult to the fans

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
To all our fans all over the world thank you for giving a frick. You all ruled! I don't think ill ever hear a fist full of dollars the same

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
My record will see the light of day soon and I'm excited because it sounds nothing like my previous endeavors.

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
And no I'm not joking about any of this, I owe it 2 u guys to all fans to be serious about this

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
Thank u to all past members who helped Volta along as well. we blasted through like a comet and left our mark!

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
If u ever see me in person and want to know why I'll tell u my story

Cedric Bixler Zavala ?@cedricbixler_
Please just be happy that it happened at all remember all the opposition we were met with for just starting a new band back in 2001.

This already happened. Hopefully they will continue to tour ocassionally.

Honestly, I think this break needed to happen. TMV has been pretty stale since Bedlam, which was a solid effort. Everything after that, like Cedric said, sounds like a different band and half assed. Maybe with a few years apart, something new and fresh will be discovered and they will get back together. A TMV reunion seems WAY more likely than an ATDI reunion ever did.
