British trio Muse have shared a new song, “Won’t Stand Down,” via one of their signature dystopian music videos, this time featuring an elderly frontman Matt Bellamy controlling an ominous army with flick of his fingers. Jared Hogan directed the video, which was shot in Kyiv, Ukraine. Watch it below, followed by the band’s upcoming tour dates.

Bellamy had this to say about the song in a press release: “‘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’s last album, Simulation Theory, was released in 2018 via Warner Bros. A press release promises the band is currently working on more new music. The band also features Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenholme.
