At The Drive-In in reformation talks

Band could be set to return to action

Defunct El Paso band At The Drive-In have been in talks to reform, according to their former singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala.

The band split in 2001, with Bixler-Zavala subsequently forming prog-rock band The Mars Volta with fellow At The Drive-In guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López.

Now the singer has said that he has been in discussions with the band’s former members, and has suggested that they could get back together after they sort their financial business out.

“We’ve been making amends with a lot of the members and having some really good talks with them,” he told Drowned In Sound. “We’ve been trying to get our financial business in order because a lot of people have been ripping off that band really badly.”

He added: “I wouldn’t mind it [a reformation]. It might happen, we just have to iron out a lot of personal things. A lot of it we’ve dealt with already and I’ve apologised for a lot of things I’ve said and the way it ended… we’ll see what happens.”

At The Drive-In were acclaimed for their 2000 album ‘Relationship Of Command’.
