The Mars Volta tour minus Pridgen

Thomas Pridgen.

As if firing one drummer isn’t enough, antiquiet has now confirmed through Thomas Pridgen’s facebook page that he is no longer part of the Mars Volta.

The Mars Volta had cancelled the last show on the US tour in Raleigh, North Carolina and rumors started flying around the message boards that it was because of a tiff between Pridgen and the band. In a Facebook post where Pridgen reported that he was recording new material, he confirmed that he was no longer working with the Mars Volta.

Rumors have Dave Elitch as the new drummer in the band according to the band’s forum.
