Omar Rodriguez-López (At the Drive-In, the Mars Volta) Announces 12 New Albums

Omar Rodriguez-López (of At the Drive-In and the Mars Volta) has announced a new album series. Starting next week and continuing through mid-December, Rodriguez-López will put out a solo album on a bi-weekly basis via Ipecac Recordings. The previously unreleased LPs were recorded from 2008 to 2013 while Rodriguez-López lived in Zapopan, Mexico and El Paso, Texas. They’ll be available digitally (with some CDs sold at Rodriguez-López’s live shows) before eventually being collected as a limited edition CD/LP box set. The first album in the series is called Sworn Virgins. It’s out July 15.
