Listen to At The Drive-In on iHeartRadio
At the Drive-In's debut album is starting a second trip through music stores today. The band is re-releasing their 1996 record Acrobatic Tenement as part of a reissue campaign that will also see the re-release of their final album, 2000's Relationship of Command, next month.
However, it looks like At the Drive-In's return to the spotlight may end there. There are currently no plans for any more reunion shows, but guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez admits that you never can tell what the future holds.
He recently told Billboard.com that At the Drive-In's reunion last year taught him that no matter how many times he said he'd never play with the band again, he didn't actually know anything. Rodriguez-Lopez said he now tries to "shut up and enjoy life," and just be happy that people still care about something he did with his best friends when they were all teenagers.
Rodriguez-Lopez's philosophy may also be good news to fans of one of his other bands, the Mars Volta. Bandmate Cedric Bixler-Zavala left the band after he claimed Rodrigues-Lopez was trying to make the Mars Volta work. But Omar says there's a chance the band could get back together someday, explaining that he's open to anything as long as there's positivity involved.
