The Mars Volta will release La Realidad de los Sueños , a box set anthology of all of their studio albums and EPs on vinyl, on April 23rd (although it is already sold out in the U.S.) In addition to 18 pieces of vinyl, it includes a photo book with new liner notes and two pins. The band’s Omar Rodríguez-Lopéz helped oversee the release with label Clouds Hill. The collection, which is limited to 5,000 copies, includes Landscape Tantrums , the band’s unfinished early recordings for their 2003 album, De-Loused in the Comatorium , before they began work on the record with producer Rick Rubin. “It is the right time to open these recordings up to the public,” said Rodríguez-Lopéz — who has been personally storing the recordings over the years — in a statement. “As a work of art in its own right, this set also needs to be seen as the end of a story.” Related Stories The Mars Volta Say Reunion Is 'Happening' At the Drive-In's Cedric Bixler-Zavala to Beto O'Rourke: 'I … [Read more...] about The Mars Volta Plan Career-Spanning Vinyl Box Set, Which Sells Out Immediately

Getty Rep. Eric Swalwell squarely blames Donald Trump and the former president's cohorts for the violent mob that stormed the Capitol, saying he texted his wife what he believed might be his final words before he was killed.
