Não consigo explicar ao certo o quanto esses caras representam pra mim. Como músico. Como ouvinte. Como ser humano. Em 2002, meus pais ganharam um video-cassete, e este era o único periférico que fazia pegar a MTV lá na Zona Sul de Porto Alegre. E foi através desse video-cassete que eu vi pela primeira vez o clipe de One Armed Scissor, música que fechou essa noite. Omar Rodriguez-Lopez é uma inspiração direta pra mim. Um cara que me mostrou um vértice totalmente diferente do que é ser um guitarrista. E hoje ele estava ali, a 5 metros de mim. Música é uma coisa sensacional. Eu recomendo. Todo ser humano deveria ter uma banda ou um músico para se apoiar, e se inspirar.
Cedric Bixler-Zavala took to Twitter after the penultimate show of At The Drive In‘s South American tour to say that the band’s next show would be their last. “Don’t know when we’ll play again,” he wrote. On Sunday (11/18), ATDI played the final show of the tour at Bar Opinião in Porto Alegre, Brazil, and in a speech near the end of the show, Cedric said, “you tell your friends you saw the last fucking time we got together, cause I don’t know when we’re going to do this again, okay?” Watch the whole speech, and see Sunday night’s setlist, and video clips from the show, below.
UPDATE: ATDI posted a message on Facebook:
In October of 2015 we sat in a hotel room and decided to really do this again. No reunion, just tour, write a record while on tour, record it, and tour again. Three years and a month later here we are. We finished multiple world tours and got to release our full length Interalia and our EP Diamanté in the process. Last night we played our last show on this cycle in Porto Alegre, Brazil. To say we are emotional, humbled and proud would be an understatement. With the help of @rawpowermanagement , @riserecords , our great agents at WME and CAA, and all our day to day hard work of keeping this unit running, we got here with a smile on our face and a few tears in our eyes. We want to thank all the crew, fans, promoters, and anyone else that got it going everyday on tour. We are looking forward to taking a break and taking in all that we had the privilege to do. Thank you for everything. See you next time. With love- Tony, Omar, Paul, Cedric, and Keeley.
As for whether ATDI are done for good, only time will tell – the band have something of a history of breaking up and reuniting. They broke up for the first time in 2001, briefly reunited in 2012, and reunited again in 2016, when they also released their first new music since 2000.
