    Looks like At the Drive-In will give Guns N’ Roses a run for its money as the year’s hardest-hitting reunion. As a banner on the band’s website reveals, the post-hardcore titans are indeed getting back together in 2016. Not only are they going on tour, but they’re releasing new music (!) for the first time since 2000’s Relationship of Command.

    So far, ATDI have confirmed two festival gigs for May: Rock on the Range in Columbus, Ohio, and Shaky Knees in Atlanta, Georgia. Additional details are expected later today.

    Since their initial reunion in 2012, the status of ATDI remained unclear. During said comeback tour, co-founder Omar Rodriguez-Lopez expressed discomfort in revisiting the band’s music, saying, “When playing those songs, I thought, ‘Here’s a person at the time that I don’t relate to anymore.’ He didn’t care about his life and was doing drugs and was really disconnected from the world and a whole lot of other personal stuff that I won’t get into. If I give myself to that, I can feel the psychological effects of that personality in the same way that an actor can say it wasn’t healthy to live in that role so long or bring that role home every night.”

    However, following the break-up of The Mars Volta in 2013, frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala left the door open for future performances with ATDI.
