New Mars Volta Music, Contest
- Words: Maverick Newberry
If you've taken one too many Which Movie Star are You? Facebook quizzes and need a new way to pass the time, head over to The Mars Volta's website. Omar Rodriquez-Lopez and Co. are gearing up for the release of their fifth album, Octahedron, and new music, along with pictures and other goodies, are hidden all over the interactive site. Just zoom in on the bright picture and look for the little gold plus signs dotted over the image.
Additionally, the band is looking for 10 to 15 of its biggest fans to host listening parties in their homes before the new album's release date. Those interested should submit a message that details why they deserve to host said party. Submissions—due June 3—can come in the form of drawings, writings, YouTube videos, and the like.
