One Comment On Social Media Confirmed That This Iconic Latino Punk Band Is Finally Giving Us All More Music

In 1994, a powerful sound filled with electricity came from El Paso, Texas. The music came from At the Drive-In, a band made up of Cedric Bixler-Zavala, Omar Rodríguez-López, Paul Hinojos, Tony Hajjar, and Keeley Davis. Their sound was pure punk rock, and they were captivating. Although the band’s life span would be an off-and-on kind of thing for years to come, another prolific entity came out of it: Mars Volta. The group was captivating thanks to Bixler-Zavala and Rodríguez-López, two fro-y-haired Latinos that commanded rock n’ roll. Now, the guys are back!

Seven years after Mars Volta disbanded, they are working on new material and, OMG.

Over the weekend, Bixler-Zavala responded to a fan who said: “I dream of you guys giving TMV a new chapter.” Mars Volta lead singer Bixler-Zavala told them “It’s happening.”

Bixler-Zavala elaborated by saying their reunion isn’t anything new, and that they’ve been working on music for a while.

In a tweet (which have been deleted), Bixler-Zavala said that the band is re-releasing some old material and working on new stuff as well.

“What it’s NOT going to be is your ‘fav member lineup’ playing their ‘classic records’ in full etc,” Bixler-Zavala tweeted, according to Consequence of Sound. “Maybe we’ll play old shit, who knows how we feel. Just remember our past campaigns never relied on playing requests or going fully backwards …it’s new shit, new people, left turns, tangent inconsistencies, mazapan dreams and churro wishes. I will say this though, when ORL played me a grip of new shit I fucking cried. Like Claire Daines in Romeo & Juliet cried. Yeah it was fucking weird. It’s in its infancy right now. No deadlines, no ball tripping, no drama, just 2 grown ass men using essential oils and bold new perfumes shooting ideas and scooting their ass across the fucking lawn trying to get rid of these worms.”

Needless to say, fans are super psyched about the new projects in the works.

That basically translates to, holy shit and we agree.

Fans are in a perpetual gasp since the news broke about the band getting back together.

Honestly, yeah. That is every Mars Volta fan across the world. How did this happen? When was the decision made? There are so many questions that are not being answered and the people demand answers.

it has been a really hard and weird two and a half years so this is some of the most welcomed news.

This couldn’t have come at a better time. We need this! Not only do we need this, the world needs this. There is so much negative news right now as government strips citizens of rights and wars rage. It is nice to know that something good is happening.

Fans are not holding back on their unbridled excitement.

What a wonderful time to be alive. Thank you Mars Volta for giving us something to look forward to right now.

Some people are afraid and we are low key curious about why and can’t wait to find out.

Whatever Mars Volta is planning, you know it’s going to be good. Even if you get a little scared, just breathe and know it is all going to be okay.

Run Away From That Toxic Relationship with Dalex’s New Single “Feeling”

Puerto Rican singer Dalex is back to his Latin R&B roots with “Feeling“, which is about leaving behind that relationship that made you question everything, including changing who you are to please the other person.

Produced by Dimelo Flow, “Feeling” not only does it get deep about leaving behind what no longer serves you, but it is also packed with punchlines like “Te olvide como El Chavo, sin querer queriendo“.

In our interview for Latido Music by mitú, Dalex talked to us about the feeling he wanted to convey with the song, singing about heartbreak instead of his usual songs that tend to be more intimate.

Watch out interview below:

In “Feeling,” Dalex wants to explore other sounds and try doing a more commercial record that more people can relate to.

The colorful music video was shot in Miami, directed by Adrián Arredondo for Wildhouse Pictures. Dalex and his love interest are seen riding around dirt bikes, which we later found out in the interview was one of his Top 5 Feelings.

Watch the music video below:

Dalex has a busy 2021 ahead, and “Feeling” is the first single from his upcoming album due this year. The Rich Music singer told us that he has a collab with Reggaetón heavy hitters Wisin & Yandel and Zion & Lennox on the way, as well as an American singer which for now he can’t reveal, but we can’t wait to find out.
