Teri Gender Bender has been booked to open the run. Tickets will go on sale this Friday, June 24th at 10:00am local time. In other news, The Mars Volta‘s vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala described their aforementioned first new song in a decade as being “a wave of rolling blackouts washing memories onto shore, a heartbeat that still remembers everything.” You can watch a video for it below.

The group initially debuted that track via an audio/visual cube located in Grand Park in Los Angeles, CA and will be bringing that experience online on July 01st for fans to enjoy digitally.
