Press release:

After selling out his last Australian tour, Omar and his band return! Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group (featuring members of The Mars Volta, At The Drive In, and Le Butcherettes).
Like our own homegrown Nick Cave before him, Omar Rodriguez Lopez is a World-renowned artist whose talents go far beyond the musical landscape he’s widely celebrated for.
Coming to prominence in the early 90’s, Omar made his mark as a guitarist in the ground break post-hardcore band At The Drive In.
In the early 2000’s he cemented his name as a music force as guitarist and producer in the Grammy Award winning progressive psych/kraut rock influenced ensemble The Mars Volta.
Now in the 2010’s, Omar has established himself as a World Class solo artist that has something vital and relevant to say, sonically speaking.
In between all of his musical endeavors, Omar has been prolific as a label manager, actor, producer, and film director. He presently owns and runs his own music and film production company, aptly entitled, Omar Rodriguez Lopez Productions. In 2010 Omar directed his first feature length film “The Sentimental Engine Slayer”, which received rave reviews at Film Festivals all around the World.
This December Omar Rodriguez Lopez will be returning to Australia with his band playing headline performances in all major Cities, he’ll also be co-headlining the Cherry Rock festival in Melbourne.
