At The Drive-In limited vinyl to be sold at Coachella

Fearless Records is thrilled to announce a limited edition yellow 10" vinyl version of At The Drive-In's seminal 1999 EP Vaya, that will be sold exclusively at this year's Coachella Valley Music And Arts Festival through the Zia Record's pop up shop and the Coachella Boutique. Fan-favorite Vaya contains their much-performed tracks "Rascuache" and "198d", and sparked the band's rapid rise to prominence. This is the first pressing of this record in 12 years.

The yellow 10" will be limited to 500 copies and will be sold on both weekends (250 each weekend) at the sold-out festival in Indio, CA on April 13-15 and April 20-22. The release coincides with the quintet's appearances at both weekends of the festival, their first live appearance since At The Drive-In announced their hiatus in 2001.

Another limited pressing of 10" vinyl copies of Vaya will also be available in record stores nationwide and online from June 5, 2012. Stay tuned for details.

AT THE DRIVE-IN - Cedric Bixler-Zavala (Vocals), Jim Ward (Guitar), Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (Guitar), Pail Hinojos (Bass), Tony Hajjar (Drums) - was born in the summer of '94, formed from the ashes of two El Paso, Texas' most popular underground bands. The band went on to become one of the most influencial rock acts of the 90's, releasing albums Acrobatic Tenement (1996), In/Casino/Out (1998), and their highly-acclaimed final album, Relationship of Command, in 2000, now seen as one of the most influential rock albums of the decade. Relationship of Command received a number of accolades including being ranked as one of Spin Magazine's 100 Greatest Albums 1985-2005, as well as number 90 on MTV2's greatest albums ever list. The album also spawned the single "One Armed Scissor", which climbed to #26 on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart, ranked at #1 on Alternative Press' top 100 singles of the 2000's.
