Due to COVID-19 and its impact on manufacturing, we are experiencing pre-order delays more frequently. We’ll keep the estimated ship months as up to date as possible, but please be advised.

If you have multiple products in your order, you can choose the ‘Direct Ship’ option to receive products as they become available in multiple shipments. Otherwise, they will be grouped in a single shipment (or your next ROTM shipment for members) after all products are received at our warehouse.

Since pre-order albums are not available to ship until the manufacturing completes, the actual ship date can shift. If there is a delay, we will always contact you.


When Solomon Grundy was buried on a Sunday, that was the end of him – but it marked the beginning of The Mars Volta's Noctourniquet, which was inspired by the Solomon Grundy nursery rhyme and the Greek mythology surrounding Hyacinthus. The concept album was a first for new explorations, but it was also the last album for The Mars Volta.
