Not a whole lot is known about Noctourniquet, save for the track list, release date, and album cover. And while that information would be enough coming from any other band, one cannot predict what The Mars Volta will do next. They could reinvent pop, delve further into electronics, or even do death metal--there really is simply no way of knowing. One could speculate, but chances are it would miss the mark. After all, the jazz infused prog rock of Frances the Mute and De-loused in the Comatorium are a far cry from the alt-rock stylings of Octahedron.
