English Rock band Muse has just released their latest single ‘Won’t Stand Down.’
As the title suggests, their new anthem is about standing your ground against your oppressors or as frontman Matt Bellamy puts it: “Protecting yourself from coercion and sociopathic manipulation and to face adversity with strength, confidence and aggression.”

The song, which is Muse’s first release since 2018’s Simulation Theory, is accompanied by a music video courtesy of Jared Hogan.
This visual offers a glimpse into the band’s upcoming ninth studio album which they’ve been working on over the past year. Although the new full-length is untitled at the moment, their new explosive single is a testament to the visceral material fans can expect from the band moving forward.
Muse has also announced a European tour which will commence at the beginning of June 2022.
