Rock band VAMPS and Finnish heavy cellists Apocalyptica will release collaborative single, SIN IN JUSTICE, via Spinefarm Records on November 20th.

For VAMPS, this is the first time they’ve collaborated with classically trained players, and it’s an experience they found inspiring.

HYDE, VAMPS' vocalist, said, “The creative process was pretty hectic. I worked on the song during our South American tour, writing the lyrics and running through the vocal lines, and the Apocalyptica camp spent time with the music between their various other commitments. Actually, it all started pretty organically, out of a growing friendship; we listened to each other’s demos, exchanged ideas, and things just grew from there. I think what we’ve ended up with is very fresh, and certainly new for us. If our respective schedules allow, I’d love to work with Apocalyptica again."

The forthcoming single is backed up by a lyric video put together by Craig Gowans, who has recently worked with both Killing Joke and Atreyu. A preview of the video can be watched below.

As reported previously, VAMPS will be joining Apocalyptica as a special guest for six shows on their Shadowmaker UK Tour 2015. A full list of dates and ticketing info can be found in the concert listings below.
