At the Drive-In

After releasing several records on the Orange County punk label Fearless Records, At the Drive-In brought its theatrical blendof punk rock and socialrevolution to Grand Royal. You could call them El Paso, Texas'sworst-kept secret. Their raw, explosivepower dominates all of their records, but it blastsstill brighter in their head-turning live shows. Combining the fury of Rage Against the Machine and the dub-influenced post-hardcore of Fugazi, At the Drive-In goes beyond any simplistic genre classifications.

After releasing several records on the Orange County punk label Fearless Records, At the Drive-In brought its theatrical blendof punk rock and socialrevolution to Grand Royal. You could call them El Paso, Texas'sworst-kept secret. Their raw, explosivepower dominates all of their records, but it blastsstill brighter in their head-turning live shows. Combining the fury of Rage Against the Machine and the dub-influenced post-hardcore of Fugazi, At the Drive-In goes beyond any simplistic genre classifications. This is the soundtrack for a complex, thoughtful, and passionate underground revolt. At the Drive-In won’t just firebomb your consciousness, they'll ignite it from within, imprinting the deepest recesses of your brain with their searingguitars and relentless rhythms.

Perhaps the most captivating thing about At the Drive-In was the immense energy they put into their live shows. Wether it be guitarist Omar Rodriguez-lopez's uncanny salsa dancing around the stage or frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala's crowd-tauntingantics, the emotion At the Drive-In put into their liveshow was one of many things that made them stick out of the crowd.

The furious and emotional tracks "Pattern Against User" and "One Armed Scissor" offer a taste of the pure sonic power of Atthe Drive-In's final full-length album, Relationship of Command. The record is anarresting sonic attack, highlighted by vocalist Cedric Bixler's confrontational, rhythmic, rapid-fire delivery. The band split in 2001, shortly after the sucess of Relationship of Command. After almost 11 years, and 3 full of speculation, At the Drive-In officially announced their return in January 2012. However, Omar Rodriguez has said that there are not, at least at the moment, plans for any new material, and that the reunions are purely out of nostalgia. Nevertheless, in 2016, the band announced their return in full form, with new material in the works. « hide
