At the Drive-In have been reunited for a bit now (but Jim Ward left earlier this year), and now they released a NEW song! It's called "Governed by Contagions" and it may not have Jim Ward on it but it's pretty damn good. It's off an upcoming new album produced by Omar Rodriguez-Lopez and Rich Costey, due out on Rise Records. That would be their first album since 2000's classic Relationship of Command. Listen below, and download it (in exchange for your email address) here.

Earlier today, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez's band Crystal Fairy (with members Melvins and Le Butcherettes) released a new song. Omar is also in the midst of releasing 12 solo albums. ATDI drummer Tony Hajjar has an album coming in January with his band Gone Is Gone (with members of Mastodon and Queens of the Stone Age).

ATDI's only upcoming dates at the moment are the Reading and Leeds festivals.
