At The Drive-In

Combining emotional melodies and upbeat rhythms moving at an unpredictable rate, At the Drive-In definitely stuck out in their hometown of El Paso, Texas. Formed in early 1994, the group debuted soon after with its first EP, Hell Paso, followed by a brief tour across the Lone Star State. With a lineup secured around Cedric Bixler (vocals), Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Jim Ward (guitar), Paul Hinojos (bass), and Tony Hajjar (drums), At the Drive-In continued on with a second EP (Alfaro Vive, Carajo!) and toured mostly empty houses and clubs across the western United States. A small gig in Los Angeles -- with an audience consisting of only nine people -- somehow got the attention of Flipside Records, which released the band's first full-length, Acrobatic Tenement, in 1996. With constant energy and a stubborn enthusiasm to continue, At the Drive-In began to develop an audience, helped out by constant touring and word-of-mouth hype. Their 1997 follow-up EP, El Gran Orgo, had more of a melodic bite, but their musical depth and originality still remained. In/Casino/Out followed in 1998, and 2000 saw the release of Relationship of Command. Then in 2001 the band went on indefinite hiatus. Bixler and Rodriguez-Lopez formed the Mars Volta, while Ward, Hajjar, and Hinojos moved on to Sparta. By May 2005 that hiatus looked pretty permanent, with both Sparta and the Volta's careers thriving and At the Drive-In issuing a retrospective compilation. This Station Is Non-Operational, released through Fearless domestically, included hits, rarities, cover songs (Smiths, Pink Floyd), and DVD content. In 2012, seemingly out of nowhere, the bandmembers announced that they would be reuniting and performing at the Coachella Festival that April. ~ Mike DaRonco, Rovi

in casino out the best ever!!!!
They could get me interested in hardcore. No other band really could. There were a lot of other things going on with them, not just hardcore. I loved the atmosphere. Really good.
Catacombs recording from the first Plea for Peace CD. Amazing.
at the drive in rlz! gr8
Can't wait for Cedrics new album, Zavalaz! Going to see them LIVE at the Starline next week!

Metronome arthritis is my favorite song, its just too good
moogleskull
unfortunatel y ATDI split just before i started listening to them in 2002. Amazing music and energy as always. Mars Volta is just as good. Their newer albums, octahedron and noctournique t , are a bit lacking from the magic they originally created, but its still well composed music. I was stoked to hear about the reunion. Looking forward to seeing them together again, but rumors say they arent writing anything new. Its alright though. Good music nonetheless
dvaugh011
I agree Powell.... when I first heard them I was stoked, I never got to see them live though... but great band!!
Oh my god. I am completely blown away. I'm gonna have to listen to more from these guys

vvvvvv What this guy said vvvvvvv
One of the best bands ever.
They rock! I love One Armed Scissor.
Welcome back ATDI!!!! Cedric, don't ruin your TMV voice over it (please) We know you haven't screamed in a while
bernardo.arg u e t a
yeah what about vaya?
half a** review. just mentions in/casino/ou t and totally skips vaya...? haha
Re-uni-ted and it feels soooo good!!
I CAN'T WAIT!!!
Praying to Jebusallahbu d d h a that they get into the studio for some new tracks after the summer touring is done!
bernardo.arg u e t a
what about Vaya?
Coachella this year
They are back!
Like drive-in better than TMV and Sparta, personally. Love the progression from first to last album. I guess I like a story with an end to; and TMV just hit me as pretentious art-rock, and Sparta was a bit hit or miss. Enjoyed Cut Your Ribbon but can not recall another song. Then again, it's been awhile. I've moved on I guess. *single tear*
I like TMV and Sparta for different reasons, but having ATDI back, even for a brief summer festival tour, would freakin' rule, but I think Omar and Cedric have taken Mars Volta and even some of their side projects (see Omar, Frusciante, Flea or the Omar Rodriguez quintet) too far into the stratosphere to look back. I regret missing out on seeing ATDI live, their stage presence was off the hook--look up some of the concert footage on youtube (arcarsenal, from Big Day Out in Australia in particul
i wish pandora pulled from all ATDI albums. in.casino.ou t is so sick
I get a little tear in my eye every time I think about how they will likely never put out another album together. Ah..what was and what could have been!

I really like both Mars Volta and Sparta, but neither comes close to ATDI.

BTW, Radiohead is f**ing unbelievably great!
Love ATDI. "The North Atlantic", and "North of America", are the closest I've found to them; Cinemechanic a and Vaux are sorta similar. Refused is one of my other favorite heavy hitters, but it's like, "the shape of punk to come" and stuff.
If I was going to be stuck on an island with a limited amount of music Relationship of command would be one of them.
I am amazed by the ignorant comments posted here.
I did not like ATDI. But I do like both Sparta and TMV. Seems to me the divergence benfitted all parties.
Ever since I heard "One Armed Scissor", I've loved ATDI. Then, I heard "The Widow" by the Mars Volta on the radio and I thought "Another s**tty Zeppelin ripoff band. Great." But I was intrigued since Zeppelin is a band of gods, so I Limewired some TMV and was FLOORED by the... everything. Now, since the Pixies and Sparta suck, how do I get more "similar artists"?
As for At The Drive-In.... o n e of my top 20 favorite bands. And I listen to hundreds of bands.
Angel of Anarchy, I just have one thing to say to you.......di e .
sparta!!!!
Those hairdos aren't biblical.
The mars volta is random genres put together for a musical buffet...to incomprehens i v e . . . v e r y brave and interesting approach though
joseph.umana
They are badass. but still they couldnt do what they did in the mars volta. And they got out of the music scene just in time to not be called emo and scremo..f**k i hate that, this band was copied and copied by so many other s**tty bands in the 2001 to even now..why?? cause no one thinks they'll remember ATDI..I DO!!
The greatest thing to come out of texas
since when is radiohead similar to these guys or sunny day? i fail to see the connection. first, radiohead don't have the balls to rock anymore. second...meh . . . t h e first one is good enough.
Breathtaking l y beautiful and, on more than one occasion, incredibly disturbing. ATDI presents us with a harsh, yet accurate vision of the world we live in. Still my favorite band of the genre!
therealdarth b o b
Quite obviously the greatest band ever. Just sayin'.
viva el paso
hewhoiscalle d j
Not as impressed with The Mars Volta; just too artsy for my own taste. But Sparta freaking rawks.
claudia0231
