Returning with their latest Album, At The Drive In announce tour dates including Reading Festival in August.
With praise still reverberating from December’s unveiling of ‘Governed By Contagions’, At The Drive In has issued another clarion call from its first album in 17 years: ‘Incurably Innocent’ is the second track to be released in advance of that record, titled in • ter a • li • a, now available for pre-order and will be released on May 5.
Pitting spacey phaser and thrash-y riffing against a sidewinder hook and siren wail, vocalist Cedric Bixler-Zavala said “Incurably Innocent is a song about sexual abuse and being able to finally speak out,” which reveals additional facets of the kaleidoscopic of in • ter a • li • a (Latin for “among other things”).
Produced by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Rich Costey at Hollywood’s Sound Factory, the 11-song 41-minute in • ter a • li • a picks up where 2000’s Relationship of Command left off and rockets off into a myriad of other trajectories as unpredictable as they are intense.
in • ter a • li • a’s release will be immediately followed by a new series of live dates beginning in At The Drive In’s native El Paso, Texas and including headline dates at the likes of the Bill Graham Civic Auditorium in San Francisco, the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles and many more before heading to Europe and then to the UK to play Reading Festival in August.
