Cedric Bixler-Zavala reveals Zavalaz
2013-05-15 by Raul Stanciu STAFF | 44 Comments

After promising a return with a new project, ex-Mars Volta vocalist/lyricist Cedric Bixler-Zavala has revealed details about his new band, entitled Zavalaz. Also, former Mars Volta bassist Juan Alderete, Greg Rogove and Dan Elkin have joined forces with Zavala. As of now, no details have been given about the music itself, except for the fact their debut record is about to enter the mixing stage.

Zavalaz have announced a short US tour starting on June 15 in Las Vegas and ending on June 30 in San Diego. Dot Hacker (featuring Red Hot Chili Peppers guitar player Josh Klinghoffer) will join them on most dates.

Check out the tour dates here - http://zavalaz.com/

...Really? "Zavalaz"?

No matter, I'm really stoked about this. Been grieving over TMV's break-up for quite some time, and this should be a good cure for my sorrows.

What? That doesn't even make sense. It's either going to be really good or horribly average.

Cedric's solo music has been in the works for a while, so it's about time something official surfaces. It'll be interesting since he is writing it himself (I think he played some guitar for this or at least wrote songs on guitar)

Fairly certain he has been working on this for a while now.

I'm pretty stoked to hear whatever he's come up with
