The trio are back with a brand new song entitled Won't Stand Down and have shared its creepy accompanying visuals.
Muse have unveiled their Won't Stand Down single.
The Devon trio - made up of Matt Bellamy, Dom Howard and Chris Wolstenholme - have released their first new material in years and they haven't disappointed, releasing an absolute banger for their fans to enjoy.
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.”
With the epic new anthem comes even more epic Jared Hogan-directed visuals, which see frontman Bellamy play an unnerving puppet master.

The song marks the first new official material from the band since 2018's Simulation Theory album, which included the singles Pressure, Something Human, Thought Contagion and Dig Down.
Meanwhile, Muse are set to embark on a summer of major European festival dates this year.
They include a headline set at the Isle of Wight Festival 2022, which represents their first UK show in almost three years.
