Apocalyptica, the Finnish multi-platinum masters of cello-rock are back with more new music. This time around, the quartet partnered with Sabaton vocalist Joakim Brodén on the single “Live Or Die.” Out via Silver Lining Music, the track’s accompanying Ville Juurikkala-directed music video can be found below, along with the band’s massive list of 2020 tour dates.

The song, which was composed by Apocalyptica and recorded in Finland with producer Martin Hansen (Scorpions), tackles our planet’s desecration.
