Gun slinging impresarios of the American progressive sect, The Mars Volta have announced plans for an 11 date tour to precede the release of their highly anticipated fourth album, The Bedlam in Goliath. Traversing North American cities on both the East Coast and throughout the Midwest, the band will get started January 9th in Burlington VT with high profile stops in New York, Philadelphia, Toronto, and Detroit to follow. This tour also comes on the heels of news that the band will already be headlining a New Years Eve extravaganza at San Francisco’s Bill Graham Civic Center.

The Bedlam in Goliath will be released January 29th on Universal Records. As usual, the Mars Volta will continue their tradition of never making an album just another album. From the PR…

“Like previous Mars Volta efforts De-Loused In The Comatorium and Frances The Mute, The Bedlam In Goliath is a thematically linked whole, the songs chapters in a bigger story, inspired by real people, places and events. The Bedlam In Goliath chronicles The Mars Volta's time with the "Soothsayer" a/k/a the Ouija board owned by vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala, and its mutation from a source of amusement during the tour supporting the band's Amputechture album into a malevolent psycho-spiritual force that nearly tore the group apart, collectively and individually.”
