At the Drive-In Return
2012-01-09 by Adam Thomas STAFF | 203 Comments

Well, it looks like hell has finally frozen over. According to Alternative Press and a relaunched website at atdimusic.com, Seminal post-hardcore band At the Drive-In are back together. Adorning their website is a header that reads "Attention! To whom it may concern: At the Drive-In will be breaking their 11 year silence. THIS STATION IS... NOW... OPERATIONAL". Murmurs of a reunion have been circling since the band broke up and split into The Mars Volta and Sparta, but it looks like this time it's actually true.

I will wait until official confirmation. This might just be a tour cash grab. And TMV and Sparta both have new albums coming out in 2012. I'm skeptical.

Oh they were amazing redsky. I don't know how much youthful energy they'd have if they toured now however. Cedric would hang on stuff and fly all over the place. Now he just drinks tea and sings falsetto.

"next you're going to tell me refused is still relevant right"

that's a really ignorant statement to say the least.

Reference and influence are not the same as being relevant. Would a new album by Refused fit their idealogy with the rapid growth of the global economy since they originally broke up? It doesn't seem like it. We can argue that it's "just about the music", but the intensity and sincerity is what made the band so powerful to begin with.

Refused are as relevant as they have ever been.

Post-hardcore is probably more popular now than ever

Are you complaining? Nothing wrong with a good genre of music being jammed by masses.

except those bands who bastardize the genre(but we have those in every style of music, eh?)

I'd say Refused's ideology is more relevant now than when they were originally active

I agree with AnarchistFish that Refused's ideology is more relevant now amidst the popular outcry against Capitalism, but what I'm not sure about is how to reconcile their reformation with both the immediate fall-out from their break-up and their famously strong anti-Capitalist stance.
When they broke up didn't they demand that any shred of evidence of their existence be destroyed? Their reunion surely contradicts the motives behind that action in a major way.
Also, although I'll probably never truly know why they reformed (maybe they honestly and simply just wanted to play together again) it is a possibility that it is a cash and grab, and this would really contradict their belief that "Capitalism is indeed organised crime and we're all the victims".
Rant aside, I can't wait to see them and At The Drive-In in April.
p.s. I'm aware I contradict myself here.
