Featuring a gruelling appearance from Aaron Matts.



Hacktivist are a week away from releasing their long-awaited second album 'Hyperdialect'. 

As one last treat, they have shared the title track. 

A bruising, boisterous and bold slab of calloused tech metal and gritty grime delivery, the song also features a bludgeoning appearance from Aaron Matts of ex-Betraying The Martyrs and current ten56 fame. 

Vocalist Jot Maxi had this to say about the tune:

"This single is about trying to describe our signature sound and how we use it. If our band was a comic book hero, then 'Hyperdialect' would be their weapon or superpower! It's our method of attack, our way of putting our governments and mainstream medias in the crosshairs. But rather than brute force we use 'Hyperdialect' to strike back.

"Technically you could say that all Hacktivist music is 'Hyperdialect'. That's one of the reasons we also chose it as an album title, this song then stands as an autological explanation of itself as a theory."


And Aaron had this to add:

"Being a part of Hacktivist's hard-hitting movement was a task that I took huge pleasure in; when the band briefed me on the track and its meaning, we were still in a pool of uncertainty in the process of ironing out what Brexit would mean to us all. As a British musician living overseas, this was the perfect opportunity for me to focus my frustration and upcoming hardships concerning the situation, and I'm incredibly proud of the result and to be a part of Hacktivist's legendary legacy."

Check out the dizzying video below:



'Hyperdialect' is set for release next Friday (June 18) via UNFD.

It's not the only collaboration on the record either.
