Lamb of God is gearing up to release a new album, and the longstanding metal band has debuted a new song called “Routes,” which will appear on upcoming set.

Frontman Randy Blythe says the new song, which is available via digital outlets, was inspired by he time at the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation in North Dakota when the NODAPL protests against the Dakota Access Pipeline were taking place. The song also features guest vocals from Chuck Billy of Testament, who is of Pomo Native American heritage. Listen to “Routes” below.

“It was a great honor as a proud Pomo Native American to be asked by Lamb of God to do some guest vocals on this song,” Billy said in a statement.

Billy added, “The NODAPL movement by the indigenous people of this country was a historic event. Being able to lend my voice to represent the Native American people, complementing Randy’s storytelling and lyrics, is something really special to me. I’m glad this movement was put in a musical message, and I am extremely happy to have been a part of it.”

Lamb of God’s upcoming, self-titled album will arrive on June 19. The album also features the previously released tracks “Memento Mori,” “Checkmate” and “New Colossal Hate.”
