Muse have released a teaser video online today, which announces the band’s new album The 2nd Law and… not much else.
Violins played furiously fast and an enormous choir of voices starts the video off, lending an incredible amount of melodrama to proceedings. On screen people run around frantically, Wall Street types buy and sell with phones clutched to their faces as shots of mines and a petrol pump hammer home the point that Muse have some kind of socially and environmentally conscious message to push. A ridiculously fake news broadcast features the anchor waxing lyrical about energy sources before, wait for it, the dubstep kicks in.
Basically, this clip doesn’t tell us all that much except for the fact that these rock’n’roll superstars are pissed off and they’re willing to use dubstep to prove that to us. They have a new record by the name of The 2nd Law set for a September release and we have no doubt it will be ridiculously popular.
