Last week, The Mars Volta released their first new album in a decade -- a lighter, more concise self-titled LP that's a pretty drastic departure from their previous material -- and last night (9/22) they began their reunion tour in their home state of Texas at The Factory in Deep Ellum. They played just two songs off the new album, and otherwise leaned most heavily on their classic debut LP De-Loused in the Comatorium, alongside three favorites from Frances the Mute, a couple tracks from Amputechture, and one song from their final pre-hiatus album, 2012's Noctourniquet. Check out videos and the setlist from the show below.

The Mars Volta's tour hits NYC on September 29 & 30 at Terminal 5, and Boston on October 1 at MGM Music Hall at Fenway -- and we're giving away a pair of tickets to the Boston show! All remaining dates are listed below.
