Muse have released their new single, “Kill Or Be Killed” from their upcoming album, Will Of The People, out August 26th. The track is carried by heavy riffs, industrial production and off-kilter prog structure, marking one of the band’s hardest-hitting songs to date.
Matt Bellamy said, “’Kill Or Be Killed’ is Muse at their heaviest! We wanted to update our hard rock sound on this album and with ‘Kill Or Be Killed’ we found a modern metal sound featuring double bass drum action and even a death growl. Lyrically the song takes influence from my favourite Paul McCartney song ‘Live And Let Die’, a dark take on how life’s adversity can sometimes bring out the worst human instincts to survival at any costs.”
Will Of The People is available for pre-order / pre-save HERE. The band’s official store offers a selection of bundles with options including an exclusive Collector’s Edition vinyl, a selection of cassettes, and three signed art cards.
