Muse Imagine Dystopian Future in New ‘Revolt’ Video
Muse’s latest full-length, Drones, is a concept album that details a futuristic society disillusioned by the state of drone warfare and “eventually defects, revolts and overcomes these dark forces,” according to frontman Matt Bellamy. That dystopian narrative now plays itself out in the band’s latest music video for “Revolt,” which Muse debuted today (Nov. 4) on Apple Music.
“Revolt” opens with an intro that sets the clip in 2025. “The year 2025,” the script reads. “Government drones fill the sky. Freedom has been banished. Until now.” The text gives way to a scene of revolution, drones flying overhead and Muse playing in the midst of it all. See it unfold in the video at the top of the page.
Muse will kick off the North American leg of their tour on Dec. 1 in Houston. The run of dates are set to conclude with a two-night run in Montreal on Jan. 20 and 21. Get more details at the band’s website.
