It’s been a year of mostly positive news for At The Drive In fans, with the band announcing in January that they would embark on a reunion tour and release new music. But then Jim Ward left the band just before the tour, with a question mark hanging over that promised new material.

Well now that question mark has turned into a big ol’ exclamation point, with the very concrete news of brand new At The Drive In material – including a new song which you can hear right now.

‘Governed By Contagions’ is the first taste of an “upcoming full-length produced by Omar Rodríguez-López and Rick Costey”, with no other details available at this time in regards to release date or title.

At The Drive In were in Australia midway through 2016 for Splendour In The Grass.

Also, it looks like At The Drive In have done a Jay Z and dropped the hyphen.
