After an 11 year hiatus, the creators of the mighty album, Relationship of Command, have returned. I of course speak of El Paso, Texas’ own At the Drive In.

Back in 2001, some ugly conversations took place, and a bitter taste was left in everyone’s mouth, including the fans. The aftermath gave birth to Sparta and the much more popular Mars Volta (whom I also love I’m sure you’ve noticed seen my posts over the years here), and that was more than enough.

But now, through the mysterious play-on-words tweet last night:

“¡ ATTENTION ! To whom it may concern: AT THE DRIVE-IN will be breaking their 11 year silence THIS STATION IS …NOW…OPERATIONAL”

The band is slated to play several dates this year, with the first confirmed dates being the double-weekend Coachella Festival this April. Check out the lineup here if you haven’t seen that post yet.

Keep it locked on their website for more tour info, and I will keep you in the loop as updates come out!

Until next time my friends,
