Former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante and At the Drive-In / Mars Volta guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez have teamed up to create the new project Kimono Kult. Both eccentric musicians have put out some odd forms of rock in the past, and from what we've learned about Kimono Kult, it has the potential to out-weird them all.

There's been a mysterious and exciting vibe revolving around the new project launched by Soulfly's Max Cavalera, the Dillinger Escape Plan's Greg Puciato, Mastodon's Troy Sanders and former Mars Volta drummer Dave Elitch. The new band has been dubbed Killer Be Killed, and the group have finally released some juicy details on their 2014 debut album.
According to a mass of tweets from vocalist Cedric Bixler Zavala, he has parted ways with the experimental rock band the Mars Volta, essentially leading to the conclusion that the band has broken up. Formed in 2001 after post-hardcore legends At the Drive-In dissipated, the Mars Volta quickly swept the world of music, but 12 years later, the band is apparently no more.
Grammy-winning and envelope pushing rock band The Mars Volta are gearing up for the release of their sixth studio album, tentatively titled ‘In Absentia,’ and possibly due out on March 27.
