Matt Bellamy took his kids to a Twenty One Pilots gig and possibly was the least cool he has ever looked doing it.

The Muse frontman might command his throng of fans when he's centre stage, but when Tyler Joseph moved through the crowd at the iHeart Radio ALTer EGO show to where he was standing, he may have bitten off more than he could chew.

Sharing a video of the moment - which was left out of the official livestream, but captured by a fan - Bellamy wrote: "When you’ve taken the kids to see @twentyonepilots and @tylerrjoseph decides to come in the crowd, sings right next to you, and you embarrass yourself, your family and everyone in the building."

Whether he was embarrassing or not, the rocker looked far more friendly than his character in Muse's new Won't Stand Down video, where he takes on the role of a creepy puppet master.

Last week saw the Devon trio - completed by Dom Howard and Chris Wolstenholme - release their first new single in years and the first official material since 2018's Simulation Theory album, which included the singles Pressure, Something Human, Thought Contagion and Dig Down.

Watch the video for Won't Stand Down below:

Matt Bellamy said of the track: "Won’t Stand Down is a song about standing your ground against bullies, whether that be on the playground, at work or anywhere. Protecting yourself from coercion and sociopathic manipulation and to face adversity with strength, confidence and aggression.”

Muse will also embark on a summer of major European festival dates in 2022, which includes a headline set at the Isle of Wight Festival 2022- marking their first UK show in almost three years.
