The Mars Volta
“I was a total monster,” says The Mars Volta frontman now of his life as a massive stoner.
Isaiah “Ikey” Owens, the longtime keyboardist for the Mars Volta and more recently for Jack White, died Tuesday (Oct. 14) of a heart attack.
In a release, White’s tour was announced to have been canceled for the remainder of its dates in Mexico.
The band, which features members of the Mars Volta and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea on a few tracks, will release their self-titled debut July 15.
Former Mars Volta members Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, Cedric Bixler-Zavala and drummer Dave Elitch have teamed with Flea to form the new band Antemasque.
Despite rumors (and a rogue tweet from the band’s former singer) to the contrary, evidence points to Guetta and the party island of Ibiza having nothing to do with this trove of previously unheard music.
