The most epic piece of music news was announced yesterday with the following tweet:
“¡ ATTENTION ! To whom it may concern: AT THE DRIVE-IN will be breaking their 11 year silence THIS STATION IS …NOW…OPERATIONAL”
90’s post-hardcore band At The Drive-In are reuniting!!
The last time At The Drive-In played together as a band was in February of 2001. Members Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez went on to form The Mars Volta, while Jim Ward, Paul Hinojos, and Tony Hajjar formed the band Sparta. I never got a chance to see Sparta, but I can say that The Mars Volta put on some of the trippiest shows I have ever seen. The band is also set to play Coachella in April.
Oh yes! My year has been made!
