They only have 7 other dates announced so far:

The Radio Dept. – Your true name

The Radio Dept. released a new song “Your true name” out now via Just so! recordings.
They are playing a live show on January 29th at El Rey Theater in Los Angeles, CA.

Lyrics:
Any time now
They will force the door
Any time now
Any time
Just kick it right down
Pin us to the floor
Any time now
Any time

And they call you delusive
But I always knew your name
And they call you abusive
But I always knew your name

Past the frontline
Way beyond the gore
Biding time now
Biding time
Past expecting
We will reach that shore
Any time now
Any time

And they call you delusive
But I always knew your name
And they call you abusive
But I always knew your name
And they call you delusive
But I know you’ll never do me no harm
And they call you abusive
But I always knew your name

Death Eyes – Record release show

On Sunday July 30th, 2017 Death Eyes played a show at Whistle stop bar, for the release of their 7″ “Si La Revancha Fuera Una Opción”, available via Three One G.

The show was fast, short and violent, just like their new EP. It was filled with incendiary outbursts of energy from Jason Blackmore (guitar) and maintaining the thunderous tempo were Jimmy Armbrust (bass) and John Cota (drums). In the center of this sonic turmoil keeping it together with his bilingual howl is Alberto Jurado who commands and demands that attention be placed on the stage.

Here is a video of the band performing one of our favorite songs from their EP, “Si La Revancha Fuera Una Opción”.

They will be playing at the after party for the Dead Cross show in San Diego, (at the Observatory in North Park), August 19 at Space Bar.
They are currently touring the West Coast, check them out!

At The Drive-In are reuniting!! (Again)

 

image

So, At The Drive-In just announced that they’re reuniting (again), that there will be a tour in 2016 and the possibility of new music from the band too!

And all of this is supposed to get us fans all excited about the possibility of seeing them live, and in some cases again!

But here is where my concern lies. First and foremost, will the new music be any good?

I don not doubt for a second the ability of Omar Rodriguez-Lopez to write a great song and for Cedric Bixler-Zavala to deliver an electrifying performance both on record and live. However, their most recent album (Antemasque) left much to be desired. The new Omar Rodriguez-Lopez band album, with Cedric on vocals also felt it lack something. The last couple of The Mars Volta albums were somewhat underwhelming, mostly due to Jon Theodore not drumming for them anymore.

Now I know that this is a ATDI album, but this also means that expectations fore what an album from them should/could potentially/hopefully will sound like. By no means do I want or need a repeat of any of their previous albums but I am expecting a great album that lives up to their name.

Just please don’t make this reunion about a cash grab and have the live performances dull and repetitive. Please have them be powerful and exciting!
