Crossover pioneers D.R.I. are currently planning to play some shows starting this fall. The band posted this update:

Thats right. D.R.I. is currently scheduling rehearsals and gearing up to play shows again starting in fall of 2009. We expect to start playing on weekends, then week long mini tours, and eventually being able to tour again spring or summer 2010.

In early 2006 guitarist Spike Cassidy was diagnosed with colon cancer and the band cancelled their touring plans.
