US metal heavyweights Lamb Of God and German thrash legends Kreator have teamed up for a brand new, collaborative single. Titled State Of Unrest, it's an iron-clad heavy metal banger released in honour of the two bands' imminent European tour of the same name.

"It’s been a long time coming and now that the State of Unrest tour is about to kick off, we think it’s worthy of a celebration!" say Lamb Of God in a statement on their social media channels.

"We are super proud to unveil a historic, creative collaboration between Lamb of God and Kreator; the brand new, all original song State of Unrest."

As the band's statement reveals, all proceeds from the new track will also go to a great cause in honour of a fallen comrade.

"As many of you may know, the State of Unrest tour originally included Power Trip on the bill," the band continues. "To honor the memory of our friend Riley Gale, all proceeds from the State of Unrest single will go to @dallashopecharities, a non profit organization who Riley worked closely with, providing shelter & resources to homeless LGBTQ young people in his beloved hometown. We hope you enjoy this special song and we are grateful for your support."
