The Mars Volta

Formed in 2001 after the demise of the Post Hardcore whirlwind At The Drive-In by ex-members Cedric Bixler-Zavala(vocals) andOmarRodriguez-Lopez (guitar), who then recruited Juan Alderete on bass, Ikey Owens on keyboard, andJonTheodore on drums, as well asJeremyWard, who contributed sound effects. Whilst other ex-members of At The Drive-Incontinued on the path of the former band with punk/Emogroup Sparta, The Mars Volta expanded their sonic pallette,oftenventuring into extended free jazz and psychedelic jamming throughout their songs.Unfortunately as of now theyhavedisbanded. :(
