AT THE DRIVE-IN HOPPING ON REUNION BANDWAGON?
[Update: Jim Ward tells Buzzgrinder a reunion isn’t in the cards for him.]
Former At The Drive-In frontman and current Mars Volta singer Cedric Bixler-Zavala hinted that an ATDI reunion may be his next on his agenda in a recent interview with Drowned In Sound.
“We’ve been making amends with a lot of the members and giving some really good talks with them,” said Bixler-Zavala. “I wouldn’t mind it.”
“Y’know, it might happen, we just have to iron out a lot of personal things,” he continued. “A lot of it we’ve dealt with already and I’ve apologised for a lot of things I’ve said and the way it ended…we’ll see what happens.”
We’ll see what happens indeed. Mars Volta have their new album Octahedron — which comes out June 23rd — to promote, so it stands to reason that it’ll be at least until the end of this album cycle before any potential ATDI reunion comes to fruition (barring an unforeseen MV implosion).
I would wholeheartedly, emphatically support this reunion — can we please all just agree that everything The Mars Volta have done since De-Loused in the Comatorium has been complete garbage and everything Sparta have done since… becoming a band has been complete garbage? On with it already, lads.
