At The Drive-In are set to reissue their first and last albums later this year.

The iconic post-hardcore band, who split in 2001 before reforming briefly in 2012, will reissue both 'Acrobatic Tenement' and 'Relationship Of Command' in March and April respectively. 'Acrobatic Tenement', At The Drive-In's first album released in 1996, will be available from March 25 while the band's most recent album, 2000 'Relationship of Command', will be available from April 22. A limited number of colour vinyl copies of the album will be sold for Record Store Day on April 20.

Speaking about the reissues, guitarist Jim Ward says: "It was interesting to revisit the recordings that bookended the first chapters of our band. The earnest and pure excitement of the beginning and the level of craftsmanship we achieved by 'Relationship Of Command' leaves me nothing but proud. I am happy these records have found their way to continue to feel new as people discover music they love and embrace our work."

Transgressive, home to Two Door Cinema Club and Foals will release the albums in the UK and Europe. The band's own label, Twenty-First Chapter Records, will release the reissues in the US.

Meanwhile, The Mars Volta, who formed in the wake of At The Drive-In, split last week after Cedric Bixler-Zavala became enraged at guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez when he formed new band, Bosnian Rainbows, without his knowledge.
