Award-nominated DJ/Producer Illenium returns with “Shivering,” a roaring new single featuring Canadian heavy metal band Spiritbox. Alongside the genre-blurring track, Illenium has also announced a forthcoming remix album, Fallen Embers (Remixes), out on May 27.

The heavy metal bass-filled “Shivering” was previewed by the DJ during his blistering set at Ultra Music Festival in March and promises fans a “storm of aggressive drums, wailing guitars, and engulfing drops”.

Check out the track here:

On collaborating with Spiritbox, Illenium shared, “Spiritbox has been one of my favorite bands for a minute and being able to work with them has been a dream. They’re incredibly talented and Courtney has a voice unlike anyone. Definitely one of my favorite songs I’ve been a part of.”

“Watching Illenium work and create on the spot was such an amazing thing to witness and be a part of.” Spiritbox’s Courtney LaPlante and Mike Stringer shared. “It was an honor working with him, and we appreciate his willingness to push boundaries, and use his influence to bring metal to the masses.”

“Shivering” follows Illeniums’s previous singles “Story of My Life” with Sueco and Trippie Redd and “Wouldn’t Change A Thing” featuring Thirty Seconds To Mars. The latter track was featured on Illenium’s deluxe edition of his 2021 full-length Fallen Embers an album which earned a nomination earlier this year for Best Dance/Electronic Album and is currently up for Top Dance/Electronic Album at the Billboard Music Awards.

Being able to work with Spiritbox has been a dream. They’re incredibly talented and Courtney has a voice unlike anyone.

Illenium has a packed schedule ahead with festival dates at Hangout Music Festival, Bonnaroo, Escapade, Lollapalooza Paris, EDC Las Vegas, Sunset Music Festival, and more plus two nights at The Gorge Amphitheatre and his ongoing Vegas residency at OMNIA Nightclub and Tao Beach Dayclub.

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
