CEDRIC BIXLER-ZAVALA Working On Solo Album

The Mars Volta/At the Drive-In frontman, Cedric Bixler-Zavala is apparently working on a solo album of his own. Move over Omar!

The photo alludes that he will receive help from Gregory Rogove (Unknown Mortal Orchestra), David Hidalgo (Los Lobos), Johnny Polonski (Puscifer) and Juan Alderete (Mars Volta). Oh and Money Mark (Beastie Boys, etc) as well! Hmmm, we’ll see how this turns out. More details to come.

CODE ORANGE KIDS Streaming New Album

Code Orange Kids are currently streaming their Deathwish Inc. debut, Love is Love//Return to Dust, over at Brooklyn Vegan. The record doesn’t come out until the 20th but you can go ahead and get your fix of Converge inspired, blistering hardcore! It’s a pretty solid release in my opinion. Check it out and MOSH.

Also, be sure to check out Code Orange Kids on tour with Gaza and Full of Hell.
