1 min read

The members of AT THE DRIVE-IN recently talked to LA Weekly about why they decided to reform the band after being gone for 11 years.

In regards to the band’s initial attempts at burying the hatchet, drummer Tony Hajjar explains:

We knew within 15 minutes of jamming that we were good… We didn’t play old songs, we just started playing. I could tell from everyone’s movements and smiles that this was right.

The LA Weekly article also says that the band’s return “wasn’t about the money necessarily: they just wanted to play together again.” Guitarist Jim Ward sets the record straight, saying:

This isn’t the sort of thing where we’re taking advantage of the reunion status and going and doing as many festivals as we can. We’re doing this very slowly and we literally don’t know what’s going to happen.
