"This first single featuring Matt from BFMV is a brilliant taste of what's to come on the forthcoming EPs.”
Perth electronic rockers Pendulum will release the collaborative track, Halo, with Bullet For My Valentine frontman and guitarist, Matt Tuck, on Friday, 2 June – just in time for the Aussie outfit’s appearance at Download Festival at Donington Park. New music from Pendulum will follow their 2021 EP, Elemental.
Listen to a snippet of Halo below. Is this a spiritual successor to Immersion's Self vs Self? Will Matt Tuck join Pendulum at Download? We can't wait to find out.
Pendulum premiered Halo to an enthusiastic Alexandra Palace audience earlier this year, and is the first of “much more new music to come” from the five-piece, per a press release.

In addition to the announcement of new music on its way, Pendulum have signed a landmark new record deal with Mushroom Group and Virgin Music Group, the global independent music division of Universal Music Group.
“We are pleased to be joining forces with Mushroom / Virgin and reuniting with Korda Marshall, a visionary who played a pivotal role in our journey back in 2006,” Pendulum’s Rob Swire said in a statement.
“After the successful release of Hold Your Colour, Korda was instrumental in propelling our career to new heights. His passion, commitment, and understanding of our music were transformative, and we look forward to this new chapter with a familiar face.
"We hope to make this phase of our career the most exciting one yet, and elevate our sound to unprecedented levels.”
Marshall added, “It’s a great pleasure to be back working with Rob and the Pendulum team. We're all so proud of the solid success Rob has achieved over the years — they were way ahead of their time as pioneers and originators of hybrid electronic/rock/drum and bass that inspired a whole generation and resonates strongly across music today.
“The new songs are sounding awesome and more relevant and attacking than ever, this first single featuring Matt from BFMV is a brilliant taste of what's to come on the forthcoming EPs.”
Pendulum will perform at Download Festival on Friday, 9 June, two lines down from headliners Bring Me The Horizon.
