Dare I say they're 'Taking Back Control'?

This is great news.

Now this I am fucking cool with.

hiya 08/09/11 12:32 PM

This is fantastic news. Can't wait to hear new material, always felt this band was underappreciated.

Slowly getting into these guys, happy to see them in action.

Ashe 08/09/11 03:31 PM

I am very cautious about getting excited for this one. Give me Wiretap Scars again, dammit.

Better yet, I hope this sucks and they tank, and mars volta need to pay debts.

Give me ATDI. Please.

Trev714 08/09/11 03:45 PM

This is amazing! More people should be excited about this! They are an amazing band and although I like Mars Volta, they have always been a bit pretentious for me at times. Sparta always hit the spot for me. SUPER EXCITED!

Mariosux! 08/09/11 04:16 PM

Really excited to hear this news

Always enjoyed Sparta so much more than the Mars Volta

This is some nice news to hear.

circasurviver 08/09/11 05:06 PM

Tinnerz 08/09/11 06:18 PM

Hell yeah!

TomAce 08/09/11 06:24 PM

blessphemy 08/09/11 07:45 PM

Thank god...

This is some of the best news I've heard in a LONG time. I've loved this band for years, and I have a soft spot for everything Jim Ward does. Even though a tour is sure to follow the album, I'm definitely considering trekking to El Paso from SoCal for this.

ohitsmark 08/10/11 05:05 AM

Couldn't be happier. Love everything Jim does. Guys awesome.

Anton Djamoos 08/10/11 08:16 AM

Can't wait!
