The Mars Volta head back to New Zealand in support of their critically acclaimed fourth album The Bedlam in Goliath (out now through Universal Music) – arguably the band’s most accomplished to date.

The Bedlam in Goliath was born after a fateful visit to a curio shop in Jerusalem by Omar where he purchased a Ouija board as a gift to Cedric. Renamed ‘The Soothsayer’ the Ouija board became the band’s post-show ritual. As interaction with The Soothsayer increased, otherworldly instances began to overwhelm the band – including physical ailments, studio flooding, music tracks disappearing and the album’s original engineer suffering a nervous breakdown.

On the eve of restarting their project, Omar buried The Soothsayer, in an attempt to reverse the curse that had plagued them. The Bedlam in Goliath follows the stories told to The Mars Volta by The Soothsayer, as they attempt to reverse curse set upon them.

Upon listening to The Bedlam in Goliath, Alternative Press declared that “The Mars Volta have created the first great record of 2008,” and Mojo confirmed “…The Mars Volta are making music built to last.” Uncut were left content, describing The Bedlam in Goliath as “their most digestible record yet”.
