According to a new interview with Drowned In Sound, the situation between the former members of At the Drive-In is not as strained as it has been in the past. Mars Volta frontman Cedric Bixler Zavala discussed the oft-rumoured and usually quickly dismissed reunion rumours saying:
I don't know what to say about that really. We've been making amends with a lot of the members and having some really good talks with them. And we've been trying to get our financial business in order because a lot of people have been ripping off that band really badly...as far as the business side goes. I wouldn't mind it. Y'know, it might happen, we just have to iron out a lot of personal things. A lot of it we've dealt with already and I've apologised for a lot of things I've said and the way it ended...we'll see what happens.

The Mars Volta will release Octahedron on June 23, 2009.
