Having formed in 1973, Death are an influential band out of Detroit, originating a sound that pre-dated the punk we know today.

Today, they're premiering a new track, “Cease Fire,” which will be released on 45 vinyl and digitally.

“'Cease Fire,' the new Death single, is a continuation of the social conscious voice that rock n' roll music states to all people,” Death says. “If John Lennon were alive in this world today, we are sure he would echo the same sentiments, because we have to first put the guns down and stop the senseless shooting so we can 'Give Peace A Chance.'”

The 45 can be purchased here.
