At The Drive-In working on new music, announce tour dates for UK, Europe and US

We knew At The Drive-In were up to something, we knew there was to be a world tour and new music and now, thanks to Fuse, we know the when and the where.

Kicking off in Los Angeles on March 23rd before the band head over to Europe for shows in France, Ireland, Germany and London, the band are on a whistle-stop world tour, presumably a tease for a larger, more in-depth run around.

Alongside the 27 date tour, the band confirmed they’re working on new music. “We’re all excited to be seeing each other, to be playing in a room again, and to be making music under a new context,” guitarist Omar Rodríguez-López tells Fuse. “This is where we all came from. We have different families now, we live in different places, but these are our roots, and a true person never forgets their roots. There’s a safety in being around people you trust.”

“We cut our teeth in this band,” adds drummer Tony Hajjar. “We slept on floors two inches away from each other in this band. We cooked for each other in this band. This is home, and it’s nice to come back to it and feel so positive about it.”

“Ever since 2012, any of the interviews we have done in between, we’ve said that the door’s always open,” Rodríguez-López notes. “We’ve been talking this whole time since 2012. We all have other projects and families, so we’re constantly sending riffs back and forth, but never putting pressure on ourselves, never feeling like this is something we have to do. We’re just letting it be natural.”
