why is nobody suspecting them in 09? They havent played a coachella since bedlam came out, and its granted they aren't touring in April, it's not like they'll be in Europe or anything. And yet for some reason they always seem left out of speculation. Whats up?

I'm hoping that MV plays. Deftinely thought they'd play last year because of the new album but this is their year

i don't know, i saw them in october (4th time) and omar's becoming way more of a shredder when he solos rather than playing the odd kind of ideas he used to play.

With each new album, their live show seems to become sloppier and sloppier. However, they were pretty sick at Detour Festival back in October, so I'd be down to see them at Coachella.

Are you kidding, they were Horrible at Detour.

I havent seen a good Volta show since The Santa show in Oct 05, which i will say was Incredible and one of the coolest hsows I've ever been too, they are just going down hill :(

I agree. De-Loused and some of Frances was their peak.

They haven't played since 2003. I'd support it.

If they could settle the fuck down and play their songs, I would LOVE to see them. But every live video I've seen of them sounds like shit..
I wanna say: "we get it.. you're rock stars.. its exciting.. but SING INTO THE FUCKING MIC AND STOP SPAZZING OUT!"

They have been mentioned, several times. In fact, here are two threads devoted to them. Why not add a third though.

Ok guys this thread is getting way out of hand.

I regret to inform you that The Mars Volta is not performing at Coachella this year. :(

I agree with a majority of this board that their shit is going downhill.
