    Experimental prog rockers The Mars Volta will release an album in the 2012.

    Frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala posted a message on his official YouTube account revealing that the group is wrapping its sixth album, the follow-up to 2009's Octahedron.

    Bixler-Zavala note: "New Volta almost done. Vocals done. Just trying to rebutcher it and finish guitar. In studio until this week then on to Mexico to add more quantum entanglement to it. The sonogram of the little beast is looking very good."

    We love the pregnancy metaphor. And the use of the verb "rebutcher." To butcher again!

    In other Mars Volta-related news, Sony's Official Playstation blog announced that the band had contributed a song called "Zed And Two Naughts" to their new baseball computer game MLB 12 The Show.

    Are you a fan of The Mars Volta and their "out there" rock?
