Muse have unveiled the official video for their Olympic song 'Survival' – watch it below.

'Survival' is the official track for the London 2012 Olympics, with the video featuring classic clips of athletes at the Games. The track will be played when athletes enter the stadium, in the lead up to the medal ceremony and also as the theme for all international TV coverage.

The band have said the song is inspired by "total conviction and pure determination to win". It was debuted on Radio 1 last week (June 27).

Writing about 'Survival', the band said: "We are honoured that the Olympics have chosen our song to officially represent the London 2012 Olympic Games across the globe."

Muse recently unveiled the trailer for their new studio album. To watch the trailer, which ends with the words 'The 2nd Law' and 'September 2012', scroll down to the bottom of the page and click.

The band's new album is the follow-up to 2009's 'The Resistance' and has been recorded in London. Little has been revealed about the album so far, but bassist Chris Wolstenholme previously said that the band wanted to do "something radically different" on their new LP.

The Devon trio will play five shows across the UK in October. The gigs begin at Glasgow's SECC on October 24, before the band move onto London's O2 Arena for two shows on October 26 and 27. They then play Birmingham LG Arena on October 30 before finishing up at Manchester Arena on November 1.
