The Mars Volta have made their lengthy return with upcoming tour dates including a Los Angeles concert date at the Hollywood Palladium for Oct. 21, 2022. It’s been quite the hiatus since Los Angeles has seen The Mars Volta live, a little over a decade in fact. To celebrate The Mars Volta’s return, the band has also shared their tropical-licious new single and short film for “Blacklight Shine.”
The lyrics of “Blacklight Shine” help to illuminate the idea of “a wave of rolling blackouts washing memories onto shore, a heartbeat that still remembers everything,” explains Bixler-Zavala.
Additional The Mars Volta tour dates include: The Mission Ballroom in Denver on Oct. 11, the Moore Theatre in Seattle on Oct. 14, The Warfield in San Francisco on Oct. 18 and more tour dates.

On June 19, a mysterious cube appeared in Grand Park in Los Angeles, CA. ‘L’YTOME HODORXÍ TELESTERION’, an audio-visual art installation, was erected to tell the story of the return of The Mars Volta. Inside of the cube, visitors were taken on a full, immersive journey to outer space, and where “Blacklight Shine” was heard for the first time by the public. The experience inside of the cube was intended to provoke self-reflection, with the single guiding fans on a journey through endless galaxies and back down to earth, to oneself. Those who were unable to witness ‘L’YTOME HODORXÍ TELESTERION’ in person, can look forward to a digital experience on July 1.
