Goliath, which debuted last month, is a concept album that spins the story of a Ouija board with the ominous nickname of Soothsayer owned by vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala.

According to a statement on The Mars Volta’s web site, the board – which started out as a harmless diversion during the band’s last tour – became a distraction and then an obsession, nearly destroying the band and its members before it was buried in an undisclosed location by guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez.

Here’s the group making its late night television debut on “Late Show with David Letterman” in January with a performance of the first single from Goliath, “Wax Simulacra.”
