Afrojack and Hardwell are both incredibly successful artists in their own rights. They don't need to work with other stars in their genre to advance their careers, but the pair is doing just that having announced a new collaboration between the two of them. Details are scarce: The only information is coming from social media posts by both artists, which indicates they are working on what would be the follow up to their 2008 track "Let The Attack Begin."

Hardwell and Afrojack's sounds have changed dramatically since 2008, so it is unlikely that this new track will sound the same as "Let The Attack Begin." Most people won't even recognize the 2008 track, which sounds like it could have been taken from a mix of Baltimore club records. Expect something a little more festival-friendly this time, fitting their stature on the main stage, but calling upon the elements of "Let The Attack Begin" would be welcome.
Both DJs have taken significant steps artistically over the past year. Afrojack released his debut artist album Forget The World in 2014 and Hardwell released his debut full-length United We Are in January. Both fell flat in terms of the album format, but they are still potent at creating singles.
With the summer months on the road for festival season about to take off, the two DJs could use another self-made weapon to add to their arsenals for their big DJ gigs in the coming months.
Stay tuned for any previews for this track, notably from live streams if either artist decides to play the tune at a festival. They will be at the same events a few times this summer, including EDC Las Vegas, which would be a good time for a world premiere.
UPDATE: Hardwell premiered it yesterday at The Flying Dutch festival in Holland. You can check out the stream below at 4:00.
