Dubbed ‘Vital’, the track was recorded during the sessions for the Aussie rock monsters’ 2016 album Brace, but sadly didn’t make the final cut.
“We wanted to share this song called ‘Vital’ with you,” the band posted on Facebook. “It’s a song that we made during the BRACE album sessions, but it never made it to the record…so we thought we’d share it with you now!”
“See you soon for State of Origin Game 1,” they added.
