Mexican rockers Mana have postponed the release of their new album, "Drama y Luz" (Warner) for 2011.

In a message posted to fans on their Facebook page, band members Fher Olvera, Alex Gonzalez, Sergio Vallin and Juan Calleros said:

"The reason is simple: The project is not fully cooked It's like having a cake in the oven and taking it out before it's ready. We are used to always finishing the preparation of our albums, and that philosophy has always prevailed over managers and record labels. We won't bow to the demands of the system. We prefer to take the necessary time and offer you the best."

"Drama y Luz," Mana's first studio album in four years, had been originally slated for release on Dec. 7.
