When The Company We Keep announced details on their upcoming 7" release for the Making Moves series, there was one track that cocked many an eyebrow - a cover of At The Drive-In's "Pattern Against User." Head to the replies to hear their unique interpretation of the classic and a short interview on why they chose the cover.

One of AP.net's readers, Dustin, was also at the At The Drive In reunion show the other night. He wrote up a pretty cool blog about the experience that I've included below. Also, don't forget to check out Adam's review here.
Fans Report InThe first time I saw The Mars Volta, it was at the 3,000 capacity Palladium Ballroom in Dallas. The first time I saw the Omar Rodriguez-Lopez Group (with Cedric Bixler-Zavala adding vocals), it was at the 1,500 capacity South Side Music Hall. Upon hearing about At The Drive-In's reunion and Coachella performances booked, I couldn't imagine the venues they'd be booked to play if they decided to tour. But they love their home state, and they showed it...

At the Drive-In are planing to re-release Relationship of Command on their own label called "Twenty-first Chapter."

The line-up for Lollapalooza 2012 has officially been announced. Headliners include Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Keys, Black Sabbath, Jack White, Florence + The Machine and At the Drive-In.

Monday night I was able to witness At the Drive-In's first reunion show in eleven years at Red 7 in Austin, Tx. Walking back to my car, I had very mixed emotions about the performance. It was a moment where I looked back on a band that changed what I knew punk rock could be at a young age, and it made me reflect on what I know punk rock to be as a term now more than a decade later. You can read my thoughts on the night here. For all the complaints the site gets about not being "punk enough" - I hope this write-up reflects my sentiments on what you think you know and what time will show you when you get older.

Three songs from At the Drive-In's first post-reunion show, can be found in the replies.

Last night I was lucky enough to attend At the Drive In's first show in eleven years. You can head to the replies to see the band's set list. I have mixed emotions about the whole thing, but rest assured, the set was quite flawless. I'll have a better rundown tomorrow. For now...we toast.

At The Drive-In will be reissuing Vaya for Record Store Day exclusively at Coachella on April 21, 2012. This release will be limited to 500 copies on colored vinyl.
Jason Tate on 03/19/12 - 01:33 PM
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.
Jason Tate on 02/22/12 - 12:26 PM
At The Drive-In, The Maccabees and Bat For Lashes have been added to this year's Benicassim festival in Spain.
Kyle Huntington on 02/21/12 - 09:00 AM
A lot happened yesterday, so we figured we'd give a quick recap on what happened in case you missed it. It seemed like anything was possible on January 9th. Rumblings about a possible The Receiving End Of Sirens reunion? Awesome. At The Drive-In reuniting for the first time in 11 years? Wow. The iconic punk band Refused burying the hatchet to play this year's Coachella festival? Holy shit. Which reunion made you fill up your pants quicker?
Drew Beringer on 01/10/12 - 10:36 AM
In light of yesterday's news of reunions by both At the Drive In and Refused (as well as many reunions to date), I've given some thought to seeing the past moments we cherish being played out in the present. After reading this, hit the replies and let us know your favorite moment that no reunion could ever recreate. Was it in a basement? Was it with less than 50 people? Did the performance floor you, and at that moment, did you know that particular band would be something special years later?
Adam Pfleider on 01/10/12 - 08:34 AM
At The Drive-In looks to be planning to reunite. Their teaser website is also now live, and Sargent House's Facebook has confirmed that they will be playing multiple shows.

Zechs Marquise discuss growing up around the influence of At the Drive In in a video interview here.
Adam Pfleider on 05/03/10 - 02:28 PM
Situated just North of the Rio Grande, dusty El Paso, Texas, seems like the kind of place likely to give rise to Western and Latin-influenced sounds, but in the early 1990's a different kind of storm was brewing. With their first live performance in October 1994, the post-hardcore juggernaut known as At the Drive-In was unleashed on the world, and on the strength of two early EPs and enthusiastic word-of-mouth, the quintet drew the attention of Flipside Records, who released their 1996 debut full-length Acrobatic Tenement, a work of volatile and shapeshifting intensity, a harbinger of things to come. They followed it up with the equally forceful In/Casino/Out in 1998 and the...

Remember the chatter about an At the Drive-In reunion? Oh ye optimistic, prepare for a crushing blow. Jim Ward does not want to talk about it.
Anton Djamoos on 06/13/09 - 06:38 AM
Cedric Bixler-Zavala (The Mars Volta) recently was interviewed on Drowned in Sound and released an interesting tidbit after being questioned about an At the Drive-In reunion...
From the InterviewI don't know what to say about that really. We've been making amends with a lot of the members and having some really good talks with them. And we've been trying to get our financial business in order because a lot of people have been ripping off that band really badly...as far as the business side goes. I wouldn't mind it. Y'know, 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...
Anton Djamoos on 06/10/09 - 09:24 PM
At the Drive-In have a newly-designed myspace page. No, this does not mean that they are getting back together. Remember, they will be included in Guitar Hero: World Tour, which comes out this Sunday.
Anton Djamoos on 10/24/08 - 01:50 PM
Synthesis reports that At the Drive-In's "One-Armed Scissor" has been the first track confirmed for this summer's upcoming Guitar Hero IV. Well, what do you know, they listened to me. Now we need some "Deadbolt"...

Update: That chat is now over. Thank you to Jim for spending a Tuesday evening with us. We wish him the best of luck in all his endeavors.

Here, in this thread, at approximately 7 p.m. EST, Jim Ward of Sleepercar (and Sparta and formerly At the Drive-In) will be chatting with AP.net users. Come in, say hi and chat it up about the band's new album, West Texas, which officially hits stores today.
