At the Drive In
It only took 15 years for At The Drive In to return to the studio and record the follow-up to 2000’s seminal Relationship of Command and the El Paso, TX-born band’s fourth full-length album, IN·TER A·LI·A [Rise Records]. Life’s circular current delivered the quintet—Cedric Bixler [vocals], Omar Rodriguez-Lopez [guitar], Paul Hinojos [bass], Tony Hajjar [drums], and Keeley Davis [guitar]—back to this point with the same sound and fury that indisputably defined a turn-of-century musical movement. Now, the group siphon their signature controlled chaos with tendrils of punk, alternative, post-hardcore, and rock through a clearer lens of wisdom and experience.
Galvanized by the creativity in South Korea, the band landed stateside, took a short break, began preproduction prior to officially entering Sound Factory studio in Hollywood, CA during November 2016 to cut IN·TER A·LI·A. Produced by Omar and Rich Costey [Muse, Sigur Rós, Santigold], it marked the first time a band member helmed production for an the At The Drive In album, while Tony would meticulously oversee mixing and mastering. Burning through incendiary takes, recording wrapped in under a month.
The album title, Latin for ‘Among other things,’ proves utterly apropos. “It’s a snapshot of life right now and the inevitability of where we might be headed,” Cedric explains. “It reminds me of the last scene in Chinatown where Jack Nicholson is told, ‘It’s Chinatown,’ as an explanation for the fucked-up nature of things. You can’t do shit about it. I don’t think it points a finger at any one source or cause. If anything, it points the finger at the person holding the record and says, ‘What are you going to do.’ Maybe we should stop focusing on the funeral march and start focusing on the younger generation. The problem is buried within layers of red tape and small print, but we don’t have to repeat it.”
Thankfully, 16 years later, we have At The Drive In back in the same spot, doing what they do best—rewriting all the rules.
