Post-hardcore legends At The Drive-In have officially released their first new song in 16 years. The new track, “Governed By Contagions”, comes from their forthcoming album, which will be released at some point in 2017. The track features the guitar fireworks that we’ve come to expect from Omar Rodriguez Lopez, pulsating drums, and the incredible vocal range of Cedric Bixler-Zavala, who seems to be all-systems-go after his vocal chord injury earlier this year that forced the band to cancel several of their comeback shows.Listen to “Governed By Contagions” below! We’ll provide more information on the new At The Drive-In album as it’s announced.
… England move to 2nd spot in ICC Championship title raceBy Brij ParasnathAN enterprising half-century from all-rounder Natalie Sciver and penetrative bowling by left-arm spinner Alexandra Hartley proved enough for England Women to celebrate a comfortable five-wicket victory over West Indies Women in the fifth ODI contested at Sabina Park, Jamaica yesterday.Hartley’s guile and variations allowed the English team to restrict West Indies to 155 all out while Sciver smashed West Indian bowlers to all parts to remain undefeated on a brilliant 58, when they sealed victory with 67 balls remaining of the 50-overs-a-side battle for a series win.With the victory, the English Women moved back ahead of their West Indian counterparts and are currently in second spot on 23 points in the ICC Championship title race.West Indies started the series in second position but by virtue of losing the three-match series 2-1, finished in third spot with 22 points, two ahead of New Zealand. The first two matches of the just-concluded series did not count for Championship points. It was level 1-1 before the real battle for points and places in the ICC World Cup next year began in earnest at Sabina Park where England took an early lead by winning the first ODI.And despite West Indies win in the second ODI when the English Women collapsed after they were off to a flying start and a 95-run first-wicket stand, the visitors kept their nerves and exhibited better discipline when their bowlers were bang on target and prevented the West Indies free-scoring batters from dominating the proceedings.Too many West Indian players were dismissed to careless strokeplay and cross-batted shots. They offered catches that were spectacularly gobbled up in the outfield and brought about their demise, even when they got a decent start.WI captain Stafanie Taylor was the only one who applied herself to the task and was determined to get a big score. She made a genuine impact with her third half-century of the series and topscored with 57 that included one six and two fours off 101 deliveries.The 25-year-old featured in mini-partnerships of 21 for the second wicket with Hayley Matthews (22), 37 for the third wicket with Deandra Dottin (15) and 38 for the fifth wicket with Britney Cooper (23) and was the seventh person dismissed with the total at 137 for 7 in 42.3 overs.Left-arm spinner Alexandra Hartley was England’s find for the series and she set a new record, destroying the West Indies middle-order to finish with an impressive analysis of 10-1-24-4 and carrying her series tally to 13 wickets.And it was not surprising that she earned the nod to share the series ‘Most Valuable Player’ award with Stafanie Taylor.Hartley was well supported by new-ball bowler Katherine Brunt who scalped three wickets for 35 runs from nine overs while skipper Heather Knight took two for 23 from 6.1 overs. Georgia Elwiss was the other wicket-taker with one for 11 from three overs.Chasing 156 to win, England openers Lauren Winfield and Tammy Beaumont posted 33 for the first wicket before Hayley Matthews dismissed the attacking Winfield who was caught by StacyAnn King for 12.Knight joined Beaumont who continued her attacking role as they pushed the total to 56 for 2 when Afy Fletcher accepted a return catch from Beaumont who contributed a solid 34 that included two fours off 50 deliveries.Knight found another useful partner in Natalie Sciver who dominated all the West Indian bowlers and piloted England to an impressive victory with 67 deliveries remaining.Sciver top-scored for her team with an unbeaten 58 that was embellished with six delightful fours off 74 deliveries. She had lost Knight, caught wicketkeeper Merissa Aguilleira for 29, Dani Wyatt caught Britney Cooper by Mohammed for 12 and Elwiss, bowled by Dottin for five.Wicketkeeper Amy Jones, who stumped Shaquana Quintyne off Brunt for one and StacyAnn King off the same bowler for 12, did the final honours of slamming Anisa Mohamed straight back over the infield for the winning boundary that sparked celebrations among the jubilant English team and their supporters, who will return home in high spirits, having conquered the West Indians at home in the Caribbean.
The 22-year-old is seen as the future of United, while he is also a big part of Gareth Southgate’s international plans, with a spot in the Three Lions’ Euro 2020 squad looking nailed on right now.However, the forward, whose current contract expires in the summer of 2023, has come under fire this season after some underwhelming performances.This is the first time in Rashford’s career when serious questions have been asked about his ability but he has responded in good fashion in recent weeks, scoring in the 3-1 victories over Norwich City and Brighton.Rashford, who also netted in each of England’s Euro 2020 qualifiers in the current international break, admits he did lose his confidence in front of goal and it affected his displays for club and country.“It has been a tough period and now I’m getting consistent games and playing week in, week out,” he was quoted as saying by Goal. “As a forward that has huge importance.“If you are not in the team and you’re in and out, you don’t quite have that confidence in front of goal. But when you’re having a run in the team, it’s important to come up with the goods and once you start doing that it becomes second nature.”Rashford will be back in Premier League action on Sunday when United make the trip to Bramall Lane to take on Sheffield United, who are on a five-game unbeaten run and sit fifth in the standings.The Red Devils have won the last six meetings against the Blades, with the most recent coming in January 2016 when a Wayne Rooney penalty handed United a 1-0 victory.0Shares0000(Visited 17 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Rashford upbeat after ‘tough period’MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Nov 20 – Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford feels he is growing in confidence with every game after coming through a tough run of below-par form.Rashford burst on to the scene in the 2015/16 season, having been drafted in by then-manager Louis van Gaal due to injury issues, and the Englishman has not looked back since his debut.
