Well, at least they lasted a bit longer than At the Drive-In. It looks like the Mars Volta has finally imploded on itself as frontman Cedric Zavala has announced that he is done with the group.
It wasn’t too long ago that the band announced a hiatus but looks like it’s a little more permanent now as Zavala took to Twitter and posted a series of messages announcing that he has parted ways with the band, but not before calling their hiatus an insult to fans.
Here are a few of the gems he dropped about the break-up:
"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 …
"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. …
"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.”
He later added: "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
"For the record I tried my hardest to get a full scale North American tour going for Noctourniquet but Omar did not want to.
"I just feel really guilty for not even really saying the truth because a hiatus is just an insult to the fans."
You might notice that Zavala references Bosnian Rainbows which is the new group formed by now ex-bandmates Marcel Rodriguez-Lopez and Deantoni Parks.
