Jim Ward At the Drive-In

It seemed a little too good to be true when At the Drive-In announced a reunion tour, and apparently it was. Jim Ward, a founding member and co-guitarist of the band, has left the group even before the tour has begun. Understandably, fans are feeling slighted by the fact that the tour won't feature the same line-up that the band has been comprised of since 1997. Keeley Davis will be filling in for Ward. You might not know the name, but if you're an At the Drive-In fan, you probably remember when half the band formed The Mars Volta and the other half formed Sparta. Davis, though not part of At the Drive-In, joined Sparta as Ward's co-guitarist in 2006.

Do you have tickets to an At the Drive-In show? Are you bummed about this line up? I'm answering "yes" to both, but let me know what you're thinking in the comments.

    If anything, Every Time I Die are a punctual band. You can expect a new album from them every other year, with several tours in between.

    Hands down, Twin Peaks has the best score - and intro song - in the history of television. The only non-download way for fans to listen to the OST is a CD from the early '90s when CD audio compression wasn't so hot. (Don't get me wrong.

    You've got to hand it to them. The boys in Every Time I Die are extremely reliable, having put out a new album every two years since 2001, save for a single three-year gap.
