In a statement, published on the band’s website, front man Matt Bellamy says: “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.”
The first single from Drones will be track one: ‘Dead Inside’ and will be released on March 23rd, however you’ll be able to pre-order the record tonight where you’ll also get to download track 3 from the album: ‘Psycho’.
As if that wasn’t good enough, Muse have also announced live dates for the Psycho UK Tour, starting in Northern Ireland this weekend. They’ll play the intimate Ulster Hall venue on Sunday, March 15th.
