They never took the time to settle down and breathe. In 20 years of existence. The pandemic forced members of the Muse group to rest and gave them ideas. Matthew Bellamy, leader of the trio, took advantage of this break to record a solo track before getting back to teamwork.

“I like the idea of ​​totally restarting and coming back to where we came from. Physically relocating to our hometown of Teignmouth, Devon, and going back to where we were when we started out,” explained- he in 2020 at NME magazine, referring to “a new album” – the 9th – followed by a tour “subject to travel restrictions”.

These new concerts were announced several months ago. Stages among the biggest festivals in Europe from June, with French stops at Eurockéennes de Belfort, Beauregard and Les Déferlantes. But with what new material? In response to the very pop 80s “Simulation Theory” released in the fall of 2018, the English turned around to find their rock soul. Much like they did with the previous album, “Drones”. “We were counting the days… We’re excited to share what we’ve been working on with you. Everyone enjoy!” Matthew Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard wrote on Instagram.

Their first unreleased single in three years, “Won’t Stand Down”, should make early fans of the English trio roar with delight. Flaming guitar riffs, almost broken voice, he rubs against the metal while borrowing the usual sounds of the group. “It’s a song about standing up against stalkers, whether in the playground, at work, everywhere. You have to protect yourself from coercion and sociopathic manipulation, you have to face adversity with strength. , confidence and aggressiveness, “insists Matthew Bellamy in a press release.

The track is accompanied by an ever more futuristic music video featuring a very old Matthew Bellamy. “A fragile and mysterious figure who siphons the collective energy of a dark army into an augmented being,” the group’s note of intent clarified. What to give a first glimpse of what will be played on stage in a few months. Before the announcement of a major theatrical tour in the fall and a stadium tour in the summer of 2023?
