The Mars Volta may be teasing new music, in possibly the most Mars Volta way imaginable.

Over the weekend, the long inactive band posted a tweet with coordinates that led fans to Grand Park in Los Angeles, where, according to posts on Reddit, they were met with a large black cube with the words “The Mars Volta” etched into it in gold.

Reports from those who waited in line to get inside the cube — in which cell phones were not allowed — claim they heard new Mars Volta music.

If indeed The Mars Volta is teasing new music, it’ll be the first fresh material from “The Widow” outfit since the group went on hiatus following the release of the 2012 album, Noctourniquet.

The Mars Volta previously stoked reunion rumors in 2021 in leading up to the release of La Realidad De Los Sueños, a career-spanning vinyl box set.
