What has The Mars Volta been up to?

Following a several year hiatus and breakup, The Mars Volta sprung back to life in 2022, eventually releasing a self-titled album on September 16, their first in ten years.

They followed that up this year with Que Dios Te Maldiga Mi Corazón, acoustically which reimagines their self-titled album from last year.
