At The Drive-In Plan Vinyl Reissues
At The Drive-In plan to re-issue their first and last albums on vinyl this year. Their records have been out of press for years while the band went on an 11-year break before reforming for a run of shows in 2012, and command high prices on ebay. Now 2000's "Relationship Of Command" and their 1996 debut "Acrobatic Tenement" will be available this spring from the band's own Twenty-First Chapter label. To celebrate record store day, a limited run of colour pressings will be available. "It was interesting to revisit the recordings that bookended the first chapters of our band," said guitarist Jim Ward. "The earnest and pure excitement of the beginning and the level of craftsmanship we achieved by 'Relationship Of Command' leaves me nothing but proud. I am happy these records have found their way to continue to feel new as people discover music they love and embrace our work." Meanwhile, the Mars Volta (which was formed in the ashes of At The Drive-In) has announced it will split up. Singer Cedric Bixler-Zavalas dissolved the Mars Volta last week because fellow band leader Omar Rodriguez-Lopez had turned his attention to side-project Bosnian Rainbows. Cedric also criticised Omar's performance at the At The Drive-In reunion shows last year. "I tried my hardest to keep [the Mars Volta] going, but Bosnian Rainbows was what we all got instead," said Cedric in a series of tweets. "I can't sit here and pretend any more."
