Here it is the News of this Week:
'Threshold' was inspired by the Brazilian movie “Nosso Lar”. In a interview, the band said “We just tried to not make the song sound like a religious song or trapped to the movie, but free, according to the belief and understanding of each. For the video, we tried to do something dark and heavy.”

It is comprised of nine original compositions that reflect a darker-hued spectrum than previous works, along with a more inward-looking lyrical perspective than one might expect — but then again, maybe not. It’s up to you, the listener, to decide what it means to you.
Wayne Coyne explains, “Why would we make this music that is The Terror - this bleak, disturbing record? I don’t really want to know the answer that I think is coming. Maybe this is the beginning of the answer.”
“If we have love, give love and know love,” Coyne says, “we are truly alive and if there is no love, there would be no life. The Terror, we know now, that even without love, life goes on…we just go on…There is no mercy killing.”

The Mars Volta
After six albums and more than 10 years, the Mars Volta have split. Singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala announced on Twitter that he is dissolving the band, blaming a lack of interest from guitarist and co-founder Omar Rodríguez-López.
"I can't sit here and pretend any more," Bixler-Zavala said. Though Mars Volta released an album in March 2012, they went on hiatus following that tour. "We're all doing different things," Rodríguez-López explained at the time. This week, the guitarist revealed the first music from his new project, Bosnian Rainbows.
"I tried my hardest to keep it going … but Bosnian Rainbows was what we all got instead," Bixler-Zavala tweeted. "A hiatus is just an insult to the fans … Omar did not want to [tour any more] … What am I suppose to do – be some progressive housewife [who is] cool with watching their partner go fuck other bands? … All I can do is move forward with my music and just be happy that Mars Volta ever happened at all."
It appears that Bixler-Zavala made this announcement without consulting the rest of the band. "Are we on break? This explains so much," tweeted sometime keyboard player Ikey Owens. After reading the announcement, he sent Bixler-Zavala a further message: "Hopefully one day we'll all get back together again."
Despite his Twitter ranting, Bizler-Zavala has insisted that he is "not angry" with Rodríguez-López: "I just wanted to be honest with the people who have allowed me to make a living playing music." But fans have been much less forgiving of the man who they blame for destroying the band. "Fuck Omar!" wrote one. While another added: "Omar, don't forget who got you where you are today … i think its safe to say, that you are now the enemy."
Rodríguez-López and Bixler-Zavala founded the Mars Volta in 2001, following the demise of their band At the Drive-In. Their heavy post-prog rock, informed by salsa and dub, proved an unlikely commercial success: with help from Flea, their some-time bassist, the Mars Volta sold more than 500,000 copies of their debut album, De-Loused in the Comatorium. All of their subsequent LPs reached No 15 or higher in the US, though they didn't fare as well in the UK.
With the end of the Mars Volta, Bixler-Zavala said he will now focus on his solo album, which sounds "nothing like" his previous recordings.
