Mars Volta's First Show in 10 Years: See Video and Setlist

Reunited prog vets dusted off old classics as well as playing new cuts

Last week, the Mars Volta released their first new album in a decade — a mellower, more concise self-titled LP that veers dramatically from their proggy signature sound — and last night (September 22nd), at The Factory in Deep Ellum in their home state of Texas, the band kicked off their reunion tour with a career-spanning 15-song set.

The Mars Volta played just two songs off the new album, and otherwise leaned most heavily on their classic debut LP, De-Loused in the Comatorium, alongside a few favorites from Frances the Mute, Amputechture and their final pre-hiatus offering, 2012's Noctourniquet. They even played "Inertiatic ESP," which singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala recently revealed Metallica had once requested that they play live and they had turned them down.
