Listen to 'The Malkin Jewel', taken from The Mars Volta's forthcoming new album

The Mars Volta's new album, Noctourniquet, is to be released on 27th March. The post-At The Drive-In prog monoliths' latest missive will apparently, as usual, be a strongly concept driven record. Expect long songs. You can listen to one of the album's tracks, the very seventies-ish 'The Malkin Jewel', below.

In other Mars Volta-related news, their former band, seminal post-hardcore crew At The Drive-In, announced their reformation last month. They are due to play several festivals over the summer, including Coachella in the US (alongside fellow reformed post-hardcore legends Refused).
