VAMPS x Apocalyptica Collaborative Single "SIN IN JUSTICE" Release

VAMPS fans, you are in for a real treat. The Japanese rock band will be collaborating with the Finnish heavy cellists, Apocalyptica, to release an exclusive single together just in time for their coupling tour in the United Kingdom later this month.

The new single is called SIN IN JUSTICE and it will be on sale November 20 via Spinefarm Records, the same record label that helped release VAMPS's BLOODSUCKERS internationally earlier this year. The single has been in talks since both bands have toured previously together early this year in the United States. Both expressed the desire to work more together after having a successful tour, and thus, the single came to be.

Below are both the words from vocalist HYDE from VAMPS and Eccia Toppinen from Apocalyptica, in which they reflect on the experience of creating this special single:

From HYDE:
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…”

From Eccia Toppinen:
Yes, we had a great time being on the road together.. We loved the idea and the experience of working together in this way. We’re really proud of the song, and we hope fans of both bands will enjoy it…”

Until the official release, fans of the bands can view the lyric video preview below. The video was produced by the help of  Craig Gowans, who previously worked with Killing Joke and Atreyu:
