The Mars Volta are in recording right now. On their last album, Frances the Mute, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea played on nine of the tracks. For their next album TMV have decicied to work with the chili's again. John Fruscinte and Flea(RHCP) are both playing on the new record. The two said the were honored to be apart of this process which will be the bands third studio album which is also another rock oprea. With recording going so good The Chili's invited TMV to be the opening act on their up coming Stadium Arcdium tour. So yeah just had to say that The Mars Volta is the shit and RHCP are just fucking gods.
