Dine Alone Records Re-Release At The Drive-In’s Acrobatic Tenement and Relationship of Command
Albums Available in Canada Today

 

(April 23, 2012)–Fresh off their highly buzzed reunion shows at this year’s Coachella Valley Music Festival, iconic post-hardcore five-piece At The Drive-In have re-released two of their critically acclaimed albums on Dine Alone Records in Canada. The re-releases include the band’s debut full length Acrobatic Tenement, as well as an expanded version of 2000’s Relationship of Command, featuring two bonus tracks not included on the original release.

“ATDI had a huge impact on me and our early beginnings as a company,” says Joel Carriere, owner of Dine Alone Records and Bedlam Music Management. “I have so much respect and love for what they have done.  Being able to release two of their most critically acclaimed albums on Dine Alone is an honour and a personal ‘mind-blower’ for us super fans in this office.”

At The Drive-In was formed in 1993 in El Paso, Texas by guitarist Jim Ward and vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala. Growing out of the early 1990s underground scene the band went on to become one of the most influential bands of that decade, being credited as a major influence for Alexisonfire, Billy Talent and Biffy Clyro. Throughout the band’s career they released three full-length LPs and three EPs before breaking up in 2001.

In January 2012, At The Drive-In announced they would re-unite for two performances at this year’s Coachella Valley Music Festival. The band has since confirmed that they will also perform at Australia’s Splendour In The Grass Music Festival. The current At The Drive-In line up is Cedric Bixler-Zavala (vocals), Jim Ward (guitar, keyboards, vocals), Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (bass), Paul Hinojos (bass) and Tony Hajjar (drums).

The LP was ranked 47th in the 50 Greatest Albums of the 21st Century in Kerrang!, number 83 on Spin magazine’s 100 Greatest Albums: 1985-2005 and was ranked at number 90 on MTV2’s greatest albums ever list.
