We had some surprise news last night, the massively influential (and assumed dead) post-hardcore group At The Drive-In might have reformed. The group posted this message via their new Twitter account along with a new website.
@AtTheDriveIn_: ¡ ATTENTION ! To whom it may concern: AT THE DRIVE-IN will be breaking their 11 year silence THIS STATION IS …NOW…OPERATIONAL
At The Drive-In formed in 1993 and released several classic albums including Acrobatic Tenement, In/Casino/Out and Relationship Of Command, which likely influenced just about any rock band you’ll hear these days. They called it quits in 2001, and Singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala and guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López went on to form The Mars Volta. Guitarist Jim Ward, who was recently out here on tour, bassist Paul Hinojos, and drummer Tony Hajjar went on to form Sparta.
No word on any new album or tour dates, but hopefully we’re fortunate enough to get a tour down here again soon.
