About the new acoustic collection, the band's label Clouds Hill, released a statement saying that "A few months after their self-titled seventh album announced the return of Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala as The Mars Volta, the group pre- sent a potent reimagining of that reunion opus. Much more than a simple 'un-plugged' reading of The Mars Volta's 14 songs, this acoustic rendition furthers the mission of the source music, which drew into sharper focus the traditional Latin influences that have always inspired their music.

"This is, says Rodríguez- LópezThe Mars Volta's version of a 'folk record', tracing the melodies and rhythms of the parent album back to their traditional Caribbean roots and chal- lenging listeners to hear the group in an entirely new light."

Que Dios Te Maldiga Mi Corazon is out April 21. Pre-orders and bundles are available here. The Mars Volta will be back on the road starting in May, and you can see all confirmed dates just below.
