At The Drive-In guitarist Omar Rodriguez-Lopez has said that the band do not have plans to record any new material.

The group recently announced that they are reforming after 11 years to play Coachella festival, and have since announced that they will also perform at Benicassim.

Rodriguez-Lopez told Kerrang!: "Will there be a new album? No, no, no. At The Drive-In is more of a nostalgia thing – it's songs we wrote when we were all in our 20s and we're doing a couple of shows.

"It's an old T-shirt that doesn't fit me any more, but when you put it on again, it feels nice. It's as simple as that."

Rodriguez-Lopez also expressed his surprise that the reunion had come as a shock to some, adding that band members had patched up any disagreements some time ago.

"For the rest of the world, [the reunion] seemed to be out of nowhere, but we've been hanging out for the past four years," he added.

Rodriguez-Lopez also told NME that being reunited could be "weird", joking: "It's like getting back with your ex-wife, only in this case there are four ex-wives!"

At The Drive-In posted an image featuring a map of Europe on their official Twitter page prior to the Benicassim announcement, possibly hinting at further live shows.
