The return of Muse
Muse return with a new album, Drones, on 8th June. It's been co-produced by the band and Robert John “Mutt” Lange.
Matt Bellamy said, "To me, 'Drones' are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behaviour with no recourse. The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones. This album explores the journey of a human, from their abandonment and loss of hope, to their indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to their eventual defection from their oppressors."
Well, there you go.
The first single from the album, 'Dead Inside', will debut the week of 23rd March. The band will premiere the album track 'Psycho', via their YouTube channel at 6:00pm GMT on 12 March. The song will be available worldwide immediately when pre-ordering the album.
The band have also announced that beginning on 15th March at Belfast’s Ulster Hall they will embark on a six date smaller venue UK tour. The Psycho UK Tour also plays Glasgow, Newport, Exeter, Manchester and Brighton.
