Muse makes a comeback with new single “Won’t Stand Down” and

English rock band Muse just released their latest single ‘Won’t step down.’

As the title suggests, their new anthem is about standing up to your oppressors or as a leader Matt Bellamy says: “Protect yourself from coercion and sociopathic manipulation and face adversity with strength, confidence and aggression.”

The song, which is Muse’s first release since 2018 Simulation theory, is accompanied by a music video courtesy of Jared Hogan.

This visual offers a glimpse of the band’s ninth studio album that they’ve been working on over the past year. Although the new feature is currently untitled, their explosive new single is testament to the visceral material fans can expect from the band.

Muse has also announced a European tour which will begin in early June 2022.
