New Zealand metal outfit Beastwars have released a brand new single, ‘Raise The Sword’, ahead of their east coast tour and upcoming album, slated to be released in June. For added measure, they’ve also dropped an accompanying music video.

This is the first new track from the band in many years. Prior to their triumphant return, frontman Matt Hyde underwent treatment for Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. Their latest feat, IV, draws heavily on Hyde’s recent experiences with cancer.

Following the release of the album, Beastwars will be heading around the east coast to celebrate the new milestone.

Check out the full list of tour dates below:

Thursday July 11 — Crowbar, Sydney NSW
Friday July 12 — Gershwin Room, The Espy, Melbourne VIC
Saturday July 13 — Dead of Winter Festival, Brisbane QLD

 

Beastwars’ new album, IV, comes out Friday June 28. Melbourne tour tickets available via Moshtix. Sydney tour tickets available via Oztix.
