The Mars Volta broke up in January 2013 when Cedric Bixler-Zavala, one half of the band's leading duo alongside Omar Rodríguez-López, revealed he had quit the band. The Mars Volta then reunited last year to release The Mars Volta, which reflected a distinct change in style.

About the change in sound, Bixler-Zavala said "Some people might see it as betrayal. I've seen some people call it yacht rock. But yacht rock slaps so hard that hip-hop producers sample it all the time."
