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

They reunited in 2012 for a few shows on the festival circuit, but I don't think anything else has come of it. YouTube footage from that year, especially in comparison with some of their live footage from their tour in support of ROC back in '01, was pretty disappointin g . They had either matured past the legendary stage presence of pre--hiatus ATDI, or half the band (Cedric and Omar) just didn't want to be there, perhaps because of the material itself

Last guy is right. I can take or leave any ATDI, Mars Volta or Sparta album but Relationship Of Command is one of the most important albums ever.
Report as inappropriate
Relationship of Command was by far one of the best records ever made, it totally took the genres of punk and hardcore and made them groundbreaki n g and melodic, not the same cookie cutter garbage that was happening at that time. And TMV has just continued to do that over and over..

This is the one of the worst songs I've ever had the displeasure to hear. I took the time out of my day to post this comment because it absolutely irritated me that much. And I have nothing against this band's other music.

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.

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

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 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"?

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!!
