The band announced they were working on a song for the video game back in May, and slyly slipped a teaser of the track into their most recent tour recap.

Now officially announced, Avenged have released the artwork and a 15 second teaser of “Mad Hatter,” which you can listen to below.

“The song is dark and brooding. We wanted to capture a difference feeling than a straight-ahead ‘zombie killer’ track,” frontman M. Shadows told Kerrang! “These songs are good places for us to experiment with our sound. I would put this in the category of ‘dark alternative.'”

Following the full debut of “Mad Hatter”, the band has plans to release a four-song compilation EP that will include all of their songs released with the Call of Duty franchise, including the new single.

Call Of Duty: Black Ops 4 is out Oct. 12 for Windows, PS4 and Xbox One.
