Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of At The Drive-In admits reunion is about money, nostalgia

Omar Rodriguez-Lopez of At The Drive-In recently confirmed that the reunited band would not be recording a new album, and that money was indeed a factor in their decision to play shows again. Check out the quotes below:

"Will there be a new album? No, no, no. At The Drive-In is more of a nostalgia thing – it's songs we wrote when we were all in our 20s and we're doing a couple of shows ... We're not getting any younger and there's been an offer of money every year. You can't avoid that. You'd be a fool and a politician to pretend that wasn't part of it."

The band will be playing Coachella this April as well as Benicassim in Spain July 12-15. What do you think of Rodriguez-Lopez's comments? Let us know below.
