The "indefinite hiatus" announced by At The Drive-In earlier this year had been seen as a possible end of ATD-I as a functioning band with members turning to their own side projects.
These included De Facto, a reggae side project featuring frontman Cedric Bixler and guitarist Omar Rodriguez, had existed alongside At The Drive-In.
Now, Rodriguez and Bixler have formed progressive rock influenced band called Mars Volta. Meanwhile, guitarist Jim Ward , drummer Tony Hajjar and bassist Paul Hinojos have formed Sparta, a rock band.
Material is expected to be released some time next year.
