This morning, what appears to be an official Twitter account for the beloved Mars Volta / Sparta ancestor At The Drive-In tweeted a cryptic message: “¡ATTENTION! To whom it may concern: AT THE DRIVE-IN will be breaking their 11 year silence THIS STATION IS …NOW…OPERATIONAL.” This message was mirrored at atdimusic.com, and retweeted by Sparta. Needless to say, we were pretty skeptical, but we did some digging. And we hit paydirt.
Reliable inside sources have led us to confidently believe that At The Drive-In will in fact be reuniting at Coachella 2012, with all Relationship Of Command-era members, including super famous martians Cedric Bixler-Zavala and Omar Rodríguez-López.
Oh, and Omar Rodríguez-López has now confirmed that ATDI will be playing “shows” (plural).
