Muse Unveil ‘Drones’ World Tour Dates

image

Back in September, Muse had announced they would be hitting the road in support of their recently released new album, Drones. At the time of the announcement, the group had only unveiled a handful of dates, but now, the United Kingdom trio have released the complete itinerary for their “Drones World Tour.”

The “Drones World Tour” will officially kick off on Oct. 19 at Orfeo Superdomo in Cordoba, Argentina. The trio will them visit other cities in South and Central America before heading up north to begin the North America portion of the tour which will take place from December 2015 to February 2016. Phantogram and X Ambassadors will take turns opening for Muse during the North American leg, so play close attention to the legend that accompanies the tour dates.

In September, the band also revealed that their stage set up for this tour will also differ from those at their previous shows. In order for fans to be able to see them from all angles, the band’s main stage will be at the center of the arenas they will be visiting. With this set up, fans will be able to get a full “360 audio/visual sensory experience,” according to their website. In addition to the 360-stage, the band will also fly drones over the audience, something that frontman Matt Bellamy had teased about in past interviews.

The complete list of tour dates for the “Drones World Tour” can be seen below.

Pre-sales for the North American leg of the “Drones World Tour” will go on sale beginning this Wednesday, Oct. 21, while general ticket sales will begin on Friday, Oct. 23. Muse released Drones back in June which featured singles “Psycho,” “Dead Inside,” “Mercy,” and “Reapers.”

Listen to Muse Release the “Reapers”

UPDATE:

The video that was uploaded yesterday afternoon, is the same exact video release by the band.

The previous video has been taken down, like the uploader warned about, but you can now see the official lyric video uploaded by Muse, below.


If you’re patiently waiting the release of Muse’s upcoming new album Drones, then we have another new track from the impending release.

As of now, the band have officially released three songs from the super secretive album, and now a new song appears to have been uploaded onto YouTube.

Though the account that uploaded the video is not Muse’s official account, you can listen to the song below which is amazing with its loud and pulsing instrumentals and frontman Matt Bellamy’s vocals. It’s become our favorite as of now; sorry “Dead Inside.”

While it’s “unofficially” Muse’s (for now, at least), we aren’t doubting the validity of the lyric video because it is very similar to the other videos they have previously released.

Anyway, check out “Reapers” below.

“Reapers” is the fourth song to be released off of Drones. Previously, the band released “Mercy,” “Dead Inside,” and lead single “Psycho” to impatiently waiting fans.

Drones will officially be released on June 9 through Warner Bros., though other locations will be getting the album ahead of time, like parts of Europe and as always, the United Kingdom.

Muse Show Fans “Mercy” with New Song

image

With just a couple of week left until the release of their highly anticipated new album, Drones, Muse have offered fans another new song from the ultra secretive record.

The new song is titled “Mercy” and is officially the third song to be released from the impending album.

On their YouTube page, where the song is currently available to stream (or you can just press play below), Muse frontman Matt Bellamy wrote the following about the track:

“The opening line of ‘Mercy’ – Help me I’ve fallen on the inside’- is a reference to the protagonist knowing and recognizing that they have lost something, they have lost themselves. This is where they realize they’re being overcome by the dark forces that were introduced in ‘Psycho.’”

Check out the song below.

“Mercy” joins previously released tracks “Psycho” and “Dead Inside” on the follow-up to 2012’s The 2nd Law. 

Drones will officially hit stores, digital and physical, on June 8 through Warner Bros. For those who pre-order the album on iTunes, they will be gifted with an “instant grat” track.

Muse Use Drones to Film Video for “Dead Inside”

Last month, Muse were being generous by giving fans two new songs off of their much-anticipated upcoming record. Today, the trio have followed that up by releasing the official music video for their recently released song, “Dead Inside.”

The video features two dancers, dancing perfectly in sync with the song as the band perform the single not too far away from them. As the pair, and the band, perform puffs of powder are up in the air, creating a smoke screen. From the smoke screen, the only thing visible are the lights from the drones that are filming the entire thing.

Makes us think of those creepy drone flyer who use the machine to spy on people who are in the comfort of their own homes.

Watch the video below.

In a recent interview, frontman Matt Bellamy claimed the group might begin to use drones during their upcoming live performances.

“We always like to use the modern technology in our shows, the latest video screens or light shows, lasers, whatever is out there,” said Bellamy.

“Drones are obviously an interesting thing to try to bring into the live show so we’re going to try and do that. There’s going to be some difficulty with red tape of health and safety about flying things over, but the general idea is that as the tour starts that we’ll be using flying objects.”

It would be kind of cool to see the Muse performing at Download Festival while a slew of drones hover over the stage and/or the audience.

Drone, the highly anticipated follow-up to 2012’s The 2nd Law is set to be released on June 9. The full track list for the record can be seem below.

DRONES TRACK LIST:

01. “Dead Inside”
02. “[Drill Sergeant]”
03. “Psycho”
04. “Mercy”
05. “Reapers”
06. “The Handler”
07. “[JFK]”
08. “Defector”
09. “Revolt”
10. “Aftermath”
11. “The Globalist”
12. “Drones”

Muse are “Dead Inside” with New Song

Muse seem to be in a giving mood this past week, especially since they worked so hard to keep anything having to do with their album under lock and key.

Today, we get a brand new track from their upcoming new record, Drones.

See, giving mood.

Last week, the British band premiered “Psycho,” after giving fans a slight taste of what to expect from the new song. Now, we get the debut of the second single (or third, if you consider the live debut of a song titled “Reaper” as number two).

The song, titled “Dead Inside” starts off with this rhythm that sounds like something you would hear in rock songs from the 80s. But don’t expect the song to keep up with that funky 80s sound; instead, that rhythm only happens during the chorus.

Confused? Don’t be. Check out the complete song below.

In the description area of YouTube, frontman Matt Bellamy explains the story of the song.

“This is where the story of the album begins, where the protagonist loses hope and becomes ‘Dead Inside’, therefore vulnerable to the dark forces introduced in ‘Psycho’ and which ensue over the next few songs on the album, before eventually defecting, revolting and overcoming these dark forces later in the story.”

Drones will be release don June 8 with pre-orders already available on iTunes. For those who pre-order the album on iTunes, they will receive an “instant grat” track.

Muse Debut “Psycho” In Full, Release New Album Info

After iTunes almost ruined Muse’s announcement about their new album a few days ago, the band have officially released the first song off of their new album Drones.

The new song, “Psycho,” was teased on Instagram last week, with the group only giving fans a small taste of what to expect directly from the studio.

Today, the band debuted the song in full.

Check out the lyric video below which begins with a drill sergeant shouting at a solider and then shifts to the band performing in front of a wall with images projected upon it.

Now that the lead single has officially been released, Muse also revealed a couple of more things about Drones like the release date which will be June 8, 2015 and that pre-orders will begin today at 7:30 p.m. GMT (3:30 EST for those in the United States).

Like iTunes leaked, those who pre-order the album will get an “instant grat” track which might be “Psycho.” We’re not sure.

iTunes Accidentally Unveils Muse’s New Album Pre-Order Info

iTunes strikes again.

After ruining Florence and the Machine’s new album announcement a few weeks ago, the music store almost did the same to Muse.

The British band have been trying their hardest to keep all information about the new record under lock and key only giving fans the bare information like the album name and a snippet of a new song. Too bad, their hard work was almost foiled by Apple.

According to DIY, some music fans were looking through the Alternative category on iTunes when they stumbled upon the Muse pre-order post. Though the iTunes post doesn’t really give away much information about the album, it does confirm the title, gives the album art, and lets those snooping know that the pre-orders are close to being made live.

Drones marks Muse’s seventh studio album and the follow-up to 2012’s The 2nd Law. Just last week, the band gave fans a tiny snippet of a new song titled “Psycho” directly from the studio. We’re not sure if it will be the lead single or the “instant grat” song, but if it’s “too offensive for radio” then it might just be.

Drones is set to be released sometime during the first half of the year which is quickly coming to an end.

The time crunch is on.
