Texas post-hardcore rockers At the Drive-In have posted a cryptic tweet that all but announces that they will be reuniting for the first time in 11 years. “¡ ATTENTION ! To whom it may concern: AT THE DRIVE-IN will be breaking their 11 year silence THIS STATION IS …NOW…OPERATIONAL,” the band wrote in a tweet earlier this afternoon.

Members of the band have been hinting a possible reunion for a few years now. “We’ve been making amends with a lot of the members and having some really good talks with them,” frontman Cedric Bixler-Zavala told Drowned in Sound in 2009. “We just have to iron out a lot of personal things. A lot of it we’ve dealt with already and I’ve apologized for a lot of things I’ve said and the way it ended. We’ll see what happens.”

At the Drive-In broke up in 2001 when Bixler-Zavala felt the band was holding him back creatively. He and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez went on to form The Mars Volta, while the remaining three members of the group formed the band Sparta. Bassist Paul Hinojos, who co-founded Sparta, left that group to join The Mars Volta between 2005 and 2009.

At the Drive-In were well known for their intense, aggressively physical live performances. You can watch a video of the band in their prime performing their hit “One-Armed Scissor” in 2000 on Later with Jools Holland in the clip below.
