After announcing the track last week, today (January 13) Muse have shared their heavy new single and accompanying music video, Won’t Stand Down.

Frontman Matt Bellamy says that the Dan Lancaster-mixed song is "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." And the lyrical message is totally matched by the music…

The trio have also unveiled a new video directed by filmmaker Jared Hogan, plus a number of massive European festival shows for this summer. Watch the video for Won’t Stand Down below, and keep scrolling to see where you can catch Muse this year.
