At the Drive-In Promise Their First New Music in 16 Years, Announce World Tour

On-again, off-again post-hardcore heroes At the Drive-In have confirmed they’re decidedly back on again in 2016.

The Texas outfit have revealed that they’re planning to release new music sometime this year and unveiled an extensive spring and summer tour that includes appearances at the Shaky Knees Music Festival in Atlanta and Rock on the Range in Columbus, Ohio. The new music would be their first since 2000’s Relationship of Command.

After going on hiatus in 2001, the band reunited in 2012 for a string of dates, but the future of the band remained in question. During that comeback tour, co-founder Omar Rodriguez-Lopez said he was uncomfortable revisiting the band’s music, saying, “When playing those songs, I thought, ‘Here’s a person at the time that I don’t relate to anymore.’ He didn’t care about his life and was doing drugs and was really disconnected from the world and a whole lot of other personal stuff that I won’t get into. If I give myself to that, I can feel the psychological effects of that personality in the same way that an actor can say it wasn’t healthy to live in that role so long or bring that role home every night.”

But after the break-up of the Mars Volta in 2013, frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala hinted that we might not have heard the last from ATDI.
