Hacktivist release Enter Shikari collaboration

Hacktivist have released a video of their track Taken featuring Enter Shikari mainman Rou Reynolds.

It features on the Hacktivist’s debut album Outside The Box, out on March 4 via UNFD and Rise Records.

Co-vocalist Ben Marvin says of the track: “This is about losing someone close to you, so it was a very emotional time writing and recording the song because we’ve all lost friends and family over the last few years.

“It’s about remembering what’s important in life, being there for others in times of need and holding moments in your life close to your heart.”

The band previously release Deceive And Defy and Buszy from the record.

Hacktivist are currently on the road across Europe.
