> The legendary post hardcore band returns to Madrid 17 years after their last visit.
> Today Friday, coinciding with the Record Store Day, their new EP Diamanté will be released.
At The Drive In, the post hardcore cult band founded in 1994, will be part of Mad Cool 2018. Recently re-united, the quintet native from El Paso, Texas, will be back in Madrid after 17 years without visiting the city.
The band currently consists of Cedric Bixler-Zavala (vocals), Omar Rodríguez-López (guitar, vocals), Paul Hinojos (bass), Tony Hajjar (drums) and Keeley Davis (guitar, vocals). They became world famous with their album Relationship Of Command (2000) an album that managed to unite critics and audiences, and also one of the cornerstones of post-hardcore.
The success achieved with that album in addition to numerous inner tensions and artistic differences made the band split up in 2001. Cedric and Omar founded The Mars Volta while the rest of the members (Paul, Tony and, at that time, Jim Ward) started Sparta.
Almost 10 years later (and against all odds) the quintet decide to get together again, but it wasn't until this 2017 where they have surprised us with a new studio album In•ter a•li•a. But there's more, coinciding with Record Store Day's Black Friday, At The Drive In, releases today Diamanté: a new EP with three songs, which was recorded last summer in Hamburg, Germany and produced by Omar Rodríguez-López himself. We are positive that these songs and other legendary ones from their collection, will be heard in their July's Mad Cool 2018 show.
