LIVESound: At the Drive-In Reunite in Austin

Leading up to their highly anticipated appearance on the main stage at this year's Coachella (more on that later...), 2012's biggest reunion act At the Drive-In took the opportunity on Monday night to warm up in a much smaller, intimate venue before a group of highly-energized diehard fans before their big performance later this week. It went down at Austin's Red 7 Lounge and marks the first time in 11 years that the El Paso quintet have played together under the same roof. According to Consequence of Sound, At the Drive-In's set included 15 songs spanning the length of the influential post-hardcore band's entire catalog. On a related note, it's been reported since news of their reformation that ATDI were solely in it for the money and nostalgia, but a new interview conducted with the members by LA Weekly reveals this isn't so. Skeptics can officially breathe easy, because the At the Drive-In reunion will be apparently extend beyond numerous high profile festival dates with plans to reissue 2000's landmark Relationship of Command on their new label Twenty-first Chapter to bat. Sounds like the formerly estranged rockers have patched things over for the best, and if you don't believe AS, the proof is in the videos below...
