Knife Party is back with a new single. The Australian duo unleashed "Battle Sirens" with Tom Morello on Spotify and YouTube.

The four-minute mind-bender of metal and electro was first premiered live during the 2016 Ultra Music Festival back in March, when Tom Morello joined Knife Party on stage.

"Performing this track live as a surprise during our Ultra set was insane," the duo told Rolling Stone.

Featuring a crazy combination of funky guitar riffs and head-twisting drops and breakdowns, the collaboration was initiated by Morello, according to the Rolling Stone interview.

The final product was exactly what he envisioned, the Prophets of Rage and former Rage Against the Machine guitarist said.

"'Battle Sirens' is the cross genre hard guitar/hard EDM mashup I've been waiting to hear for years... The devastating grooves, monster drops and insane tension that are a hallmark of both Knife Party and Rage Against the Machine are elevated to a crazy level with this jam."

Check out the track below.

"Battle Sirens" will officially release September 9th on Earstorm Records, Big Beat Records, Comandante and Mom + Pop Music.
