Plus, a full UK tour

Muse are back.

New album 'Drones' will be released on June 8th, while 'Dead Inside' – the first single to be drawn from the LP – drops on March 23rd.

Here's Matt Bellamy: "To me, 'Drones' are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behaviour with no recourse. The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones. This album explores the journey of a human, from their abandonment and loss of hope, to their indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to their eventual defection from their oppressors."

Here's the tracklisting:

1. Dead Inside
2. [Drill Sergeant]
3. Psycho
4. Mercy
5. Reapers
6. The Handler
7. [JFK]
8. Defector
9. Revolt
10. Aftermath
11. The Globalist
12. Drones

Finally, Muse have confirmed plans for a full UK tour. Tickets go on sale at 9.30am tomorrow (March 12th) – dates are as follows:
