The band’s seventh studio album ‘Drones’, their follow-up to 2012’s ‘The 2nd Law’, is out this week (June 8). Stream it online now.

This clip follows on from the band’s music video for ‘JFK/Defector’. The latter clip featured the band performing the track on a grainy television set, interspersed by various archive news clips including a Martin Luther King, Jr. speech, the toppling of Saddam Hussein’s statue in Iraq in 2003 and NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.

Matt Bellamy has claimed that ‘Drones’ is Muse’s best album, admitting, “That’s not something I’ve been able to say for a while.” Bellamy also recently told NME about visiting the White House and talking conspiracy theories with former Secretary Of State Colin Powell.

Muse have also promised to bring “as much fire as possible” to Download Festival this weekend (June 12-14). Appearing on The Graham Norton Show last night (June 5), frontman Matt Bellamy promised a spectacular performance for their headline set. “We’re definitely going to take that to Donington where all the metallers are – we’re going to give them as much fire as possible,” he said after playing ‘Mercy’ live on the show.
