No New Music From At the Drive-In

Posted by: Jason Tate (02/22/12)
At the Drive-In won't be recording any new music during this reunion run. The band was extremely honest with NME, and admitted it's about nostalgia and money.

Wow, never actually seen a band flat out say "this is for money" before.

At least they were honest...That's cool. But in reality it's not cool that they're doing that

The rational, broke, recent college grad in me understands needing money badly, yet this still is a bit bothersome.

I don't think there is any problem with this at all. They're playing their music. Their impact has only grown since they broke up and I think that at some point, money is money. They're ATDI, not a commercial band that ever catered to easy cash trends, so let them get some money for their honest music. Like he said, a reunion is awkward, and they're willing to embrace that because there is a huge demographic of (paying) people who have been waiting for it.

Even though this comes as no surprise, it's still bothersome on many levels.

Shouldn't really be bothersome ... most bands tour for the money.

I don't know how you could complain about this. There are definitely going to be some stupid posts in this thread. I'm okay with this so long as I get to see them on the tour.

We don't need new music from them and no shit it's for the money somewhat. This for the fans of the music and the cash. Did you want them to do it free?
