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.
