    Immensely prolific Grammy Award winning recording artist Omar Rodriquez-Lopez (The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In) announced that he will spend Spring 2011 enjoying some North American headlining tour dates with his Omar Rodriguez Lopez Group, bookended by performances at next week's SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX and the Coachella Festival in Indio, CA in April. Sibling band, Zechs Marquise will support most shows.

    In April, Omar will also release a quadruple LP / double CD collection culled from his multiple solo and collaborative albums. The extensive 37-song (38 on the vinyl version) compilation of the guitarist's work, titled Telesterion showcases the variety and breadth of explorative artistry spread across his 25 (and counting) solo albums harvested for this release. 25 solo albums? Prolific doesn't even begin to describe what Rodriguez Lopez is.

    For those unsure where to begin discovering Omar's vast catalog, this is a fitting introduction. Telesterion includes a 20-page booklet of artwork and text outlining the scope of his work, with liner notes by longtime friend and Rodriguez Lopez Productions art director Sonny Kay.

    Telesterion will be available everywhere on Record Store Day, April 16th, 2011 via Rodriguez Lopez Productions / Sargent House.
