Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of At The Drive-In has put an end to speculation that the band, who have just reunited after a considerable hiatus, might record a new LP. Ever.
Speaking to Kerrang about the reformation, he said: “Will there be an album? No, no, no. At The Drive-In is more of a nostalgia thing – it’s songs we wrote when we were all in our 20s and we’re doing a couple of shows”.
He added: “It’s an old t-shirt that doesn’t fit me any more, but when you put it on again, it feels nice. It’s as simple as that”. Presumably that means old t-shirts tour, but don’t make new music. Is that how it is, Omar? Hmph.
Anyway. At The Drive-In are set to cash-in at several high-profile festival bookings this year, which include their first ever European appearance at Benicassim. Good for them.
