Do you think we made Ben Weinman a little uncomfortable when we interrogated him last year? We couldn’t hold ourselves back from asking him about the many unusual musical collaborations he’s been involved with — Jeffree Star, Lou Pearlman (the man behind Backstreet Boys and ‘N Sync), among others. And what about Omar Rodriguez-Lopez — he told us all about working with the world-famous producer Ross Robinson when At The Drive-In recorded Relationship of Command.
When we interviewed Omar Rodriguez-Lopez a couple years ago he mentioned how he needed some space away from The Mars Volta. After some time apart, he and TMV vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala are back with a new project — it’s called Antemasque.
When we did that interview with Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, it was right around the time Bosnian Rainbows started going full force.
Omar Rodriguez-Lopez’s Bosnian Rainbows will release their self-titled debut album in June.
After what appeared to be a hiatus, The Mars Volta vocalist Cedric Bixler Zavala confirmed the band has broken up.
