At The Drive In has made good on its promise to release new music before the close of 2016.
“Governed By Contagions,” from the band’s forthcoming full length album produced by ORL and Rich Costey, is the first new song written and recorded by At The Drive In since the 2000 release of its landmark third album Relationship Of Command. It is now available as a free download at atthedriveinmusic.com and streaming at YouTube. Critics are already rushing to herald the band’s bombastic new single as:
“What better way to soundtrack the fraying of nerves in America…picks right up where 2000’s Relationship of Command left off, with a nervous and noisy shot of heavy post-hardcore.”—NPR
“Packs a ton of punch…sounds about as bleak and angry as most of America feels right now…this sick world just might be healed after all.”—VULTURE
“The fierce, stuttering anthem is pretty classic ATDI”—SPIN
Following on the recent announcement of its upcoming Reading and Leeds Festival appearances, At The Drive In has confirmed a first handful of headline dates for 2017. The shows run March 20-29 and cover cities where the band was forced to cancel in June 2016 due to health concerns regarding Bixler-Zavala’s vocal cords.
