Billy Talent have released a lyric video for their new single Reckless Paradise.

The song will feature on the Canadian outfit’s as-yet-untiled sixth studio album, which will be the follow-up to 2016’s Afraid Of Heights. Further album details will be revealed in due course.

Reckless Paradise follows Forgiveness I + II which arrived in November last year and featured as the music in the first episode of the multi-part short film featuring UFC stars Rose Namajunas and Donald ‘Cowboy’ Cerrone. 

Further episodes featuring Billy Talent will be released in the coming months. 

Billy Talent will head out on tour later this year, kicking off the run with sets at the UK’s Slam Dunk festivals in Leeds and Hatfield on May 23 and 24.
