Coachella Lineup Announced

Refused and At the Drive-In reunite after a decade of silence.

Sadly, ehh...what am I saying, luckily, I will not be attending Coachella. But it is a banger lineup this year. Two post-hardcore legends Refused and At the Drive-In will be playing along with the usual heavy hitters. Refused annouced that they are "Not Fucking Dead" and have Coachella and Way Out West Fest (Sweden) as their only dates. ATDI set the Internet on fire with their comeback announcement but no other dates have been announced. I really hope they play out West. Seeing ATDI and Radiohead in the same year would be amazing. Speaking of, Radiohead is also set to headline Saturday, but I am seeing them this March with Megan!

The Refused website statement...
It's been a motley 14 years since our band came apart. We've all kept busy in our respective endeavors but we've all remained friends and kept in touch. There have been offers, and lots of jokes about these offers. We've sort of looked down from our high horses and made fun of people who've just wanted to share the psychopathic intensity that we would deliver on a nightly basis in our post-pubescent prime. A reunion has just seemed irrelevant to us. Too much other shit to do…

We never did The Shape of Punk To Come justice back when it came out, too tangled up in petty internal bickering to really focus on the job. And suddenly there's this possibility to do it like it was intended. We wanna do it over, do it right. For the people who've kept the music alive through the years, but also for our own sakes… See you in the pit.
