At the Drive-In are an American post-hardcore band, from Texas, consisting of Jim Ward, Cedric Bixler, Omar Rodriguez, Paul Hinojos, and Tony Hajjar.
Formed around 1993, they are considered pioneers of the post-hardcore genre. The band released three albums ‘Acrobatic Tenement’, in 1996, In/Casino/Out in 1998, and, ‘Relationship of Command’ in 2000. After a semi-breakdown on stage at the Big Day Out Festival, the band fizzled out and split in 2001. As with any ground-breaking band that splits, though, there were constant calls for a reunion. The band performed once again at Coachella Music Festival in 2012 and played a show in the UK.
In 2016, At The Drive-In announced that they were making a full comeback and are working on new material, as well as heading out on a world tour.
2017 saw the group put out their fourth record (and first in 17 years), 'In•ter a•li•a', and they supported it with tours across North America, Australia, and the UK. They've also announced their return to Dublin this summer. Check below to find the tour dates and concert ticket information through Stereoboard.

At The Drive-In are stuck. In the year 2000, they released one of the greatest albums ever made: ‘Relationship of Command’. Seventeen years later, they followed it up with ‘In•ter a•li•a’: a bloated, embarrassing mid-life crisis of a record that failed to capture the bliss of youth. Its follow up, ‘Diamante’, offers some respite, albeit in small doses.
