NEW MUSIC: MUSE | WON'T STAND DOWN
Muse has returned with their first song in four years. It’s called “Won’t Stand Down,” and it comes with a music video directed by Jared Hogan. Produced by Muse and mixed by Dan Lancaster (who has previously worked with "Bring Me The Horizon" and "Enter Shikari"), ‘Won’t Stand Down’ is, according to Bellamy, “about standing your ground against bullies, whether that be on the playground, at work or anywhere.” In the clip, a weak figure siphons the energy of an army to transform into a towering, demon-like being. "Won’t Stand Down’ is a song about standing your ground against bullies, whether that be on the playground, at work, or anywhere,” singer Matt Bellamy explained in a statement. “Protecting yourself from coercion and sociopathic manipulation and to face adversity with strength, confidence, and aggression.” Muse’s last album, "Simulation Theory," came out in 2018. Since then, the UK rock band has released a concert and narrative film as a companion project to the LP, an "Origin of Muse" box set celebrating the 20th anniversary of debut album "Showbiz," and a full-album remix of their classic 2001 album "Origin of Symmetry." Muse will play their first UK live show in nearly three years in June with a headline slot at the Isle of Wight Festival. This summer, the band is also set to play at several major European festivals, including Tempelhof Sounds, Mad Cool Festival, and Germany’s Rock am Ring and Rock im Park.
