Gemäß eines neuen Interviews arbeiten THE MARS VOLTA bereits am Nachfolger zu "Bedlam in Goliath". Gitarrist Omar Rodríguez-López erklärt:
"The Bedlam in Goliath is a year old for me at this point, and it was written a year before that, so, essentially, it's two years old for me. Whatever people know of us [from] the new album, it's actually two years behind where I am now. So you have to put your current world in park and go in reverse just to talk about whatever's 'new.'"
