During the review process, I was sent some additional materials which informed the write-up. I've held off posting this for a while, as I thought it might get posted in full by a website as an exclusive or somesuch, but the press has moved on now and it's just stuck on my hd not doing anything. There's some interesting stuff here. Enjoy.




AT THE DRIVE IN TRACK-BY-TRACK 2017


“No Wolf Like The Present”
Cedric: “We were at The Palladium in Hollywood playing two shows, and we always have this stuff to record backstage. I heard Omar putting ‘No Wolf Like The Present’ down. I thought, ‘That’s going to be fucking fun. Mark that down!’ Ever since I first heard it, I was like, ‘That’s our opener.’ It’s a call-to-arms. It makes me tear up with excitement every time I hear it—all ego aside. I knew it was the perfect non-sequitur of saying, ‘The time is now.’”

“Continuum”
Cedric: “That was introduced in Washington, D.C. I laid it down as a foundation. I fifty-percent stayed true to it. I didn’t even know anybody liked it. Omar came back to it and said, ‘This one right here.’ We really started taking it apart and beating it up. It became what it was. Two of my biggest inspirations when I apply what I like to this band are Mark E. Smith and Kathleen Hanna. I don’t think I’ve ever had the opportunity to lay that idea down. To me, there are moments of Kathleen’s vocals and a lot of Mark E. Smith’s style—smoking but barking megaphone. The verses have this traditionally rock sound. Once we put all of those elements together, it’s not so traditionally rock though. It’s its own thing. It really fucking blisters to me. It’s another call-to-arms.”
Tony: “It’s our Frankenstein. We pulled the bridge from another track and kept on meticulously thinking about how much time there should be between parts and the vocals. It kept on coming back. In the end, after we pulled from here and there and put it all together, it was straight up.”

“Tilting At The Univendor”
Cedric: “That came up towards the end of hashing shit out before we jumped into the studio. To me, it’s one of those ingredients that makes At The Drive In. Thematically, it’s translating the phrase, ‘Tilting at windmills,’ into not settling for the options that are given to you in life. Sometimes, a Univendor is out of all the candy and sodas it will provide for you, and you only have Pepsi and Coke to choose from. I hope a lot of people will identify that’s one of the main problems in life: we settle for two options. That can be applied to anything. It can be applied to religion. It can be applied to government. It can be applied to love.”

“Governed By Contagions”
Cedric: “This one phrase always comes back to haunt me in a good way. It’s, ‘Honor your mistakes as hidden intentions.’ The bulk of the chorus came out of a mistake. I wasn’t even around when that happened. I was told, ‘We hit something that’s fucking awesome. We can’t wait for you to hear it.’”
Tony: “We were in Philadelphia. It was Omar, Paul, and I in a room. Paul was showing us these bass lines he had. Omar and I were playing along. I just started playing that beat, which ended up being the verse. I had forgotten what the next part was so I just played the tom part that ended being the chorus and Omar screamed, ‘That’s the part!’ Our engineer replayed it. It was literally a big awesome mistake!”

“Pendulum In A Peasant Dress”
Cedric: “It’s really the frame of mind of having a child tell you what they see through news feeds or radio. North Korea is a big influence on the record. You can’t help but pull from what everyday life might be there. I’m trying to mirror that Stasi East German paranoia.”
Tony: “We dug into that musically in Seoul. It tells the story of where the band was, is, and will end up being.”

“Incurably Innocent”
Cedric: “It’s a song about abuse. It’s about sexual abuse. It’s about having the balls to stand up and speak out about sexual abuse even if you don’t speak out about it right away. It hopefully lends its arm of help to other people who are afraid to speak up about.”

“Call Broken Arrow”
Cedric: “That was introduced early on when we were having the conversation that time is now for an album and we have to do this now. We sat on it and tried a bunch of different ways. I wanted to show the literal influence of Captain Beefheart phrasing. He’s one of the godfathers of punk, especially in the way his lyrics aren’t ever directly understood, and his delivery is very unsettling. It got to the point where I had to start watching my enunciation because it started to sound like I was from Boston! Rich and Omar said it was like I was trying out for The Departed on the word ‘Towards.’”
Tony: “It’s the diamond in the rough. It was recorded right before ‘Hostage Stamps.’ It went through a lot of ups and downs, and we’re really happy with the end result.”

“HOLTZCLAW”
Cedric: “That’s another one from South Korea. Omar has a tendency to write stuff that’s really jarring and in strange time signatures. I had this phrase, ‘Church ain’t over until you put the snakes back in the bag,’ which I thought was so appropriate for it. You can take it in so many ways, not just a faith-based commentary. For me, it had a Wipers feel. I’m a huge Wipers fan. I was like, ‘That’s fucking awesome.’ I don’t think we’d have Blonde Redhead or Drive Like Jehu without them. I try to immerse myself on a lot of CB terms police use that were appropriate for the modern town. I used, ‘Forget it, it’s Chinatown.’ Hope is a worthless currency. You can’t do shit about this.”

“Torrentially Cutshaw”
Tony: “That song has lived since 2011. We all started talking again in 2009. It was great. We started thinking about stuff in 2012. We decided to jam. Cedric and I were the only two people still living in L.A. He came over to my house, and he pulled out some of the riffs that became that song. The other version is completely different. It felt good to be playing together again even though it was just the two of us at that point. It always stuck by us.”
Cedric: “I like this character Cutshaw in The Ninth Configuration, which is William Peter Blatty’s spiritual part two to The Exorcist. There’s a character named Cutshaw. He plays an astronaut. Right before he launches into space, he has a freak out, and he has this existential crisis about God. They have to stop the launch, pull him out, and lock him in this insane asylum. I think a lot of people can identify with that last second doubt in yourself, and I liked that name. To me, ‘Torrentially Cutshaw’ is embracing the fact it’s okay to doubt yourself and be bummed out on something to the point your whole world might cave in. You can learn from that. It’s a hidden gem. It says a lot about people.”

“Ghost-Tape No. 9”
Tony: “Keeley had this song I kept on wanting to go back to. At the end, we found time. It just wasn’t working initially though. The last few days of pre-production, he brought it back in like a slower track. Omar started working on it and putting it together. I was thinking of this mechanical, machinery moving beat. We played it once so we can keep it fresh for the studio. It definitely flourished in the studio. We are really proud of that one.”
Cedric: “It’s one of my favorites on this record. It’s untouched. I wrote to it in the studio. I’ve always been fascinated by psychological warfare. I stumbled across this Psi-Op tape Americans used on the Vietnamese in the Vietnam War. They used to put together this tape they would play in the jungle to scare the Viet-Cong. It played on the idea of what happened in their afterlife. They would record this guy with all of this heavy reverb and really scary sounds. The voice would say, ‘Don’t fight anymore, guys. We’re going to be stuck in this limbo, if you keep fighting. Go back to your life.’ It would spook a lot of the VC out. It’s such a fucked-up tool to use in war. It was called ‘Ghost-Tape No.10,’ so I wanted to make ours ‘Ghost-Tape No. 9.’ I’m telling the story of this strange little powder drug used in Columbia to rob people. They blow it on you, and you fall under the beck and call of someone robbing you. You’ll do what they say and be happy. There’s no trace of it in your blood. I’m writing about an auditory version of that chemical to maintain population control and decide who procreates in our society. It’s an auditory Psi-Op. One couple catches on. They don’t want to be told they can only have one kid and there’s a preordained person to procreate with. No. 10 really exists. This is our version.”\

11. “Hostage Stamps”

Tony: “It was December of 2015. when I sent the first draft electronic version to the guys. Omar came back a bunch of ideas through out the track, but especially with the riff that now leads it. We worked on it for probably five hours in the studio. We put it together there in the studio, ate dinner, went in, and tracked it. It felt like one of those moments you’ll remember forever and tell a story about to your best friend or child. That song will always be special for all of us because literally it was this floating idea that became another one of our children in the studio right in front of us.”
Cedric: “To me, it’s like walking through the hallway in some war-torn ghetto and reading the writing on the wall. When you hear things like, ‘Raise your kniving pole,’ I don’t think anyone will know what that is right away, but when you look it up, it’s this curse. We are going to be victorious. Here’s the fucking head on the stake in front of our army. We’re coming back. It’s reading the writing on the wall. It’s going and keeping your ear to the ground and listening to the heartbeat of young people.”
