Love 'em or hate 'em, 2015 is seeing the return of Muse. They just announced their brand new album Drones which will be out this summer on 8 June, and you can read what frontman Matt Bellamy has to say about it from a press release below:

"To me, 'Drones' are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behaviour with no recourse. The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones. This album explores the journey of a human, from their abandonment and loss of hope, to their indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to their eventual defection from their oppressors."

Our first taste from the album will surface tomorrow in 'Psycho', followed by the release of the album's lead single 'Dead Inside' on the 23rd of March. It was co-produced by the band and Robert John "Mutt" Lange, and the full tracklist can be found below. The band are also headed out on an intimate UK tour in a few short days which kicks off in Belfast. Tickets will be available tomorrow at 9:30am, with a fan pre-sale happening right now!
