The two-time GRAMMY Award-winners Muse return with the brand new song ‘Won’t Stand Down’, Which is out via Warner Records. Produced by Muse and mixed by Dan Lancaster (Bring Me The Horizon, Enter Shikari), ‘Won’t Stand Down’ is 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.
Matt 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.”
‘Won’t Stand Down’ is released along with its official video. Directed by the award-winning filmmaker Jared Hogan (girl in red, Joji) and shot in Kyiv, Ukraine, the visual features a fragile, mysterious figure that siphons the collective energy of a dark army to transmute into an augmented being.
