[News] The Mars Volta Announce Sixth Studio Album, 'Noctourniquet' With Artwork, Tracklist

The Mars Volta have wrapped up their sixth studio album and are currently prepping for its release on March 27th, 2012, courtesy of Warner Bros. The album is called Noctourniquet and follows their 2009 release Octahedron and (as per usual) written by Omar Rodrigues-Lopez (who also produced the album) and Cedric Bixler-Zavala. The band has also revealed both the artwork and tracklisting for the album over on their official website, which we have grabbed a screen shot for the sake of your instant gratification.

Our friends over at Antiquiet have snagged some live footage of songs that will supposedly be on the new record, so you will want to check those out as well if you haven't already.
