At The Drive-In Are Back With A Major Worldwide Tour And New Music


At The Drive-In

Another rock band is set to return this year with a string of new shows around the world. 90s rock band At The Drive-In will re-unite for the second time this decade for a hard-hitting comeback tour which includes numerous festival dates and at least one UK show.

It has been 16 years since the band released their US Heatseekers number one 'Relationship of Command', before they separated a year later. They briefly returned in 2012, but they are indeed back once again and it looks like there might even be some new music on the horizon. In the first set of announced dates for 2016, they'll be playing London's Roundhouse on March 27th, Dublin's Vicar Street on March 26th, alongside several European dates in Paris, Vienna, Berlin and Barcelona, before setting out across North America visiting all the major cities - New York, Toronto, Chicago, Nashville, Atlanta - with festival appearances at Shaky Knees and Rock On The Range.

At The Drive-In - Relationship of Command Album Review

This album is perhaps most well-known rightly for its explosive, jagged post-hardcore guitar riffing on tracks such as the brilliant opener Arcarsenal and the unforgettable, classic single One Armed Scissor. You also get Cedric Bixler-Zavala spitting out about one thousand words per minute on songs such as Pattern Against User and the discordant Sleepwalk Capsules. All of these tracks stand out as highlights in an album packed tightly, wall to wall with highlights. This plays out like a greatest hits set.

Elsewhere on the album the band show a more dark and broody side, with the passionate, slow burning strains of Quarantined and the spoken word experimentalism of the epic Invalid Letter Dept. These songs offer perhaps not respite or relief, but variety to this impressive mix.
