After releasing several records on the Orange County punk label Fearless Records, At the Drive-In brought its theatrical blendofpunkrockandsocialrevolution to Grand Royal. You could call them El Paso, Texas'sworst-kept secret. Their raw, explosivepowerdominates alloftheirrecords, but it blastsstill brighter in their head-turning live shows.

After releasing several records on the Orange County punk label Fearless Records, At the Drive-In brought its theatrical blendofpunkrockandsocialrevolution to Grand Royal. You could call them El Paso, Texas'sworst-kept secret. Their raw, explosivepowerdominates alloftheirrecords, but it blastsstill brighter in their head-turning live shows. Combining the fury of Rage Against theMachine and the dub-influencedpost-hardcore of Fugazi, At the Drive-In goes beyond any simplistic genre classifications. This is thesoundtrack for acomplex,thoughtful, andpassionate underground revolt. At the Drive-In won’t just firebomb your consciousness,they'll ignite it fromwithin,imprinting the deepestrecesses 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 itbeguitaristOmarRodriguez-lopez's uncanny salsa dancing around the stage or frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala's crowd. tauntingantics,theemotion At theDrive-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 AttheDrive-In'sfinalfull-length album, Relationship of Command. The record is anarresting sonic attack, highlighted by vocalistCedricBixler'sconfrontational,rhythmic, rapid-fire delivery. The band split in 2001, shortly after the sucess of Relationship of Command.Afteralmost 11years, and 3 full ofspeculation, At the Drive-In officially announced their return in January 2012. However, OmarRodriguez has saidthatthere are not, at least atthe moment, plans for any new material, and that the reunions are purely out ofnostalgia. Nevertheless, in2016,the band announced theirreturn in full form, with new material in the works. « hide
