The world's worst named band with the most interesting lineup have announced the release of the first in a trio of albums, Cryptomnesia, due on May 5th. El Grupo Nuevo De Omar Rodriguez Lopez (for the spanish-challenged, that's The New Group of ORL) is the melding of Omar Rodriguez Lopez (The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In), Zach Hill (Hella), Jonathan Hischke (ex-Hella), Juan Alderete de la Peña (The Mars Volta), and "features the vocals of guest frontman Cedric Bixler Zavala (The Mars Volta, At the Drive-In) on eight of the album's eleven tracks". OK, can it get any more spazzy? Sounds pretty wild, and judging by the tracks in the below video, it just may be.

Though the first album was completed shortly after The Mars Volta's Amputechture in 2006, it wasn't until last year that Mr. Random Word Generator, aka Cedric Bixler Zavala, added his vocals to the mix. No word on personnel, or release date for the additional two records.

In addition to the May 5th release, " A special limited advance vinyl offering of... 3,000 copies will be made available... to Indie Retail in honor of RECORD STORE DAY on April 18th."

Cryptomnesia is the first release on Rodriguez Lopez Productions, the new imprint formed by... guess who? ORL's last record, Old Money, was released by hip hop indie superpower Stones Throw digitally in 2008, and in hard form on Jan 27th 2009.

the touring group (Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Group is different than El Nuevo Group.) This group currently has no tour planned.

Yes 8:54, that is correct. Hence the fact I didnt list El Grupo Nuevo De Omar Rodriguez Lopez as the artist, just ORL.
