At The Drive-In: Relationship of Command

At The Drive-In’s debut on Grand Royal Records is a sonic barrage of driving beats and haunting lyrics about life on the Texas-Mexican border. Vocalist Cedrix Bixler says the CD is the band’s response to the violence and poverty they see, and their fury to do something about it. But it’s also music for underdogs and geeks everywhere, people who don’t accept the status quo and want music that rocks.

Vocalist Cedric Bixler says the band’s music is for people who are just like him: geeky underdogs who don’t want to fit in.
At The Drive-In’s harsh lyrics and striking imagery come from the cruelties of everyday life on the Texas-Mexican border.
Take Patty, Iggy and a Navy Seal and you get a twisted scenario–that can happen.

Bixler says this song was inspired by Rod Serling’s "Twilight Zone", where people are obsessed with being forever young.
