La Realidad De Los Sueños means "the reality of dreams" - and there is no title more fitting for this unbelievable box set. This represents a dream come true for the many loyal fans of alternative rock giants, The Mars Volta, across the world. Working intimately with Omar Rodríguez-Lopéz, Clouds Hill has brought out an all-encompassing and wonderfully designed vinyl box set.
The box set includes 18 LPs (180 grams, black vinyl) and is available to pre-order from March, 5th 2021 with a release date of April 23rd. 2021. The vinyl only set contains the debut EP Tremulant (2002) and the six studio albums from De-Loused In The Comatorium (2003) and Frances The Mute (2005) through to their last work Noctourniquet (2012). Everything has been newly remastered specifically for vinyl by Chris von Rautenkranz. And you can hear the difference: Chris explains, "We have taken care to give the sound more space. To make it sound more lively and organic than the original, which was mastered for digital formats."
Leaving a creative impact and making an artistic statement has always been the motivation behind the collaboration of Omar Rodríguez-López and Cedric Bixler-Zavala. The duo has been making music together for nearly 30 years. During this time, the two of them have gone through a prime example of musical evolution: they never stood still, instead their art matured and grew steadily. Omar's epic songwriting and Cedric's lyrical novellas complement each other perfectly, and that is ultimately what makes this band so unique and timeless.
Clouds Hill is honored to manage the publishing of The Mars Volta. The first outcome of the new partnership is the release of the band's first EP Tremulant on all streaming platforms. In addition, Clouds Hill is excited to announce a very special vinyl release: All studio albums and EPs by the critically acclaimed iconic duo that is The Mars Volta. It is the release fans have been anticipating for years, including the myth-shrouded Landscape Tantrums - the original unfinished recordings of De-Loused in the Comatorium. The remastered box-set is limited to 5000 copies worldwide and includes an exclusive photo book of behind-the-scenes photos with accompanying text spanning the band's career and 2 collectible pin-badges.
