Avatar has released a new song called “Violence No Matter What” featuring Lzzy Hale.

The Halestorm frontwoman lends her vocals to the aggressive tune, which will appear on the Swedish metal outfit’s upcoming album, Dance Devil Dance.

“‘Violence No Matter What’ is about one thing and one thing only,” says Avatar vocalist Johannes Eckerström. “It’s OK to debate and fight and to think differently. But there is a limit, and the line must be drawn at authority held with violence, a world view that cannot survive without enemies, a promised return to a fabricated former glory.”

“‘Violence No Matter What’ was such an inspiring piece to be a part of!” Hale adds. “Thank you so much to the boys for giving me the opportunity to express my angst against the horrors of this world through such a brilliant song!”

You can listen to “Violence No Matter What” now via digital outlets and watch its accompanying lyric video streaming now on YouTube.

Dance Devil Dance, the follow-up to 2020’s Hunter Gatherer, will be released February 17. It also includes the previously released songs “The Dirt I’m Buried In,” “Valley of Disease” and the title track.

Avatar will launch a U.S. headlining tour in support of Dance Devil Dance in April.
