MUSE have shared a new single, Won’t Stand Down, their first new music since the release of 2018‘s Simulation Theory album.

Self-produced by the Devon trio and mixed by Dan Lancaster (Bring Me The Horizon, Enter Shikari), the riff-heavy Won’t Stand Down is described by the band’s ‘people’ as “an arena-ready anthem of controlled chaos, with heavy guitars and industrial-like distortions amplifying Matt Bellamy's striking lyrics about taking one's power back.”

Frontman Bellamy says, “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.”
