_A4A7689Mars Volta- Palladium 10.23.22

2022 has been the year of reunions and on September 22nd The Mars Volta played their first show in a decade in Dallas, TX after surprising fans and releasing a new record. Their highly anticipated seventh studio album and first album in a decade bravely challenged everything you thought you knew about The Mars Volta, delivering their most exciting, most accessible, and most sophisticated music yet. For the new album the band enlisted original bassist Eva Gardner (Pink, Cher, Gwen Stefani), who helped write the band's original material at their formation. Gardner's bass plays a dominant role throughout the album both with her booming tone and intricate bass lines.
