Mars Volta Break Up Over Omar's New Project Bosnian Rainbows

Friday 25th January, 2013 9:27AM

Cedric Bixler-Zavala of cult prog-rockers the Mars Volta announced the end of the band via a tirade of tweets yesterday. The reason for the split appears to be Omar Rodriguez-Lopez' shift in focus to a new project called Bosnian Rainbows. Here's a couple of Bixler-Zavala's Twitter gems to give you an idea of what went down:

"Thank u 2 all VOLTA fans u deserved more especially after the way u rooted for us on [2012's Noctouriniquet], 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."

"What am I suppose to do be some progressive house wife that's cool with watching their partner go fuck other bands? We owe it 2 fans to tour."


Bosnian Rainbows consists of Rodriguez-Lopez, Deantoni Parks, Nicci Kasper and Teri Gender-Bender, and they've already released a track called 'Torn Maps' which you can listen to below.

Bosnian Rainbows = fail. Omar should find a different guitarist without Omar's attitude and ego, grab Ikey and Jon Theodore and keep making wicked music.

I'd be sadder about the break up if Bosnian Rainbows didn't kick so much ass.
