Back in November of 2000, the post-hardcore act At the Drive-In delivered a mesmerizing set at the Agora. At the time, critics touted the group as the “next big thing.”

While the band didn’t entirely become a household name, the group did leave a lasting impression thanks to its visceral live shows.

Now, the band has just announced it’ll release in • ter a • li • a, its first studio album in 17 years. A tour in support of the album, which comes out in May, commences on March 17 in New Orleans.

Produced by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Rich Costey at Hollywood’s Sound Factory, the 11-song 41-minute album follows 2000’s Relationship of Command.

The band will conclude its North American tour on June 21 at the Agora. Le Butcherettes will open the show.
