At The Drive-In talk reunion

In another chapter to the everlasting rock band reunion saga, brought to the forefront by Faith No More’s return last week, the former members of At The Drive-In are spurring rumours of a comeback.

In news that sent the FasterLouder forum into a frenzy over the weekend, ATDI alumni Cedric Bixler Zavala (now of The Mars Volta fame) told Drowned in Sound, “I wouldn’t mind [a reunion]. Y’know, it might happen, we just have to iron out a lot of personal things. A lot of it we’ve dealt with already and I’ve apologised for a lot of things I’ve said and the way it ended…we’ll see what happens.”

His former bandmate, Jim Ward is simply keeping mum on the issue. “I haven’t got much to say about anything except with songs which I will continue to make and release – cheers.”

holy hell, that would be amazing. Saw them here in 2002 (I think) and was amazing.

Well, Cedric and Omar would probably be the least likely to want do it, so if Cedric says it's possible, then I guess that's that barrier overcome. Still, wouldn't get too excited just yet...

Sorry, guys.
Hate to be the bearer of bad news but according to Cedric and Omar, it's officially not gonna happen.

I know you were convinced that it wasn't going to happen, but obviously quite a few people were hoping it would.
So that's why I posted the update on the matter.

Now, you can go back to slandering Alex.

If you didn't enjoy it, I would do it all the time.
I hope it happens more than anyone but I am not going to get giddy and lose all my shit over an NME article.
Jim and Cedric in a room for more than an hour would be an achievement that would suggest the possibility of a reunion.

Just out of interest, why do you, Mooney and Brittles all dislike Alex so much now?

And the quote originally came from Drowned in Sound, not NME.

Do they dislike Alex? I never even knew I did.

I don't read drowned in sound but thanks for the extra knowledge.

You didn't know? Either someone else is posting as you or you're both in on the joke, but you ripped him a new arsehole in that thread on Tokyo.

Yeah we were recreating the eacape scene in The Running Man.

Me - "You're a hell of an actor Alex"
Alex- "Who's acting?"
Me - "Well you're still alive aren't you?"

atdi and sparta are overrated and hardly worthy of all the praise they have achieved since they broke up.
