At the Drive-In is an American post-hardcore band from El Paso, Texas, active from 1993 to 2001. They were known for their extremely energetic stage shows which hearkened back to the 1980s hardcore scene. They were also recognized for their blend of surrealistic lyrics, unorthodox guitar melodies and unpredictable shifts in tempo and rhythm.

Founded by Jim Ward (guitars) & Cedric Bixler Zavala (vocals - at the time a member of punk band, Foss, in which he played drums). Read more on Last.fm

Guest Column: My problem with Record Store Day, by Daniel Garrod

April 19th, 2013

Record Store Day 2013 Thrash Hits

After his last column on why he dislikes guests lists so much proved to be so popular, we asked former Bastions drummer, Daniel Garrod, if there was anything else he fancied getting off his chest/putting in the firing line. We didn’t expect him to turn his attention to Record Store Day, but hey, here’s his column…

Mastodon at Leeds Festival 2012 by Gobinder Jhitta Thrash Hits

In addition to those sweet as you like on-stage photos of Cancer Bats’ Main Stage triumph we showed you last weekend, our man Gobinder Jhitta took a shedload of photos at this year’s Leeds Festival. We basically gave him free rein to go shoot whatever and whoever he wanted, and he didn’t let us down – pretty much every band we ranted and/or raved about in our post-Reading & Leeds Festival podcast is featured in his gallery, which you can check out after the jump.

Because, y’know, everyone’s got bills to pay. In a brief “statement” over on their official website, the much-lauded, oft-overrated-by-people-who-never-actually-saw-them-play-live band said the following:

“Attention! To whom it may concern: At The Drive-IN will be breaking their 11 year silence. This station is…now…operational.”

That’s it. Nothing more yet. Carry on as you were. We’re sure we (and many others) will have a great old time reliving how disappointing it was to be 17 again when At The Drive-in inevitably play at Coachella, some secret show or another at SxSW, and then headline the second stage at this year’s Reading & Leeds Festivals, but for now, we can’t really be bothered to try to pad out ATD-I’s hype-building exercise into a longer article. OH WELL.
