On the heals of Monday’s release of “Wastelands,” Linkin Park premiered a new song today (June 3) on Zane Lowe’s BBC 1 radio show that features System Of A Down guitarist Daron Malakian.

In comparison to their first official single from The Hunting Party, “Rebellion.” And unlike the album’s first three singles, Mike Shinoda does most of the singing, with Chester Bennington offering his patented scream toward the end of the track.

While some believed the band would latch on to the current dance music trend, Linkin Park took a different approach to this album with harder guitars and faster drumming. “It’s probably the hardest stuff he’s ever played on one of our albums,” Shinoda told Rolling Stone of drummer Rob Bourdon’s revved up approach. “He had to physically work his way up to it. He had to go running, lift weights, work with a trainer.”

Watch the lyric video for “Rebellion” below.
