The Mars Volta To Tour In Support Of Frances The Mute

Last week The Mars Volta released their latest hard rocking epic album, Frances The Mute, to a wave of popular support. They even topped our very own Tripwire Top 30 Chart last week as well. With that out of the way, The Mars Volta are now doing rock stretches (to be sure they don't pull a hammy doing a rock jump) and doing all the other necessary things required when one "gears up" for a 17-date North American tour. Kicking off on April 22 in San Diego, the trek will run through May 19 in Minneapolis, hitting major markets throughout the US and Canada along the way. Check out all the details below.
