The band has returned with their first song and music video in four years.
The British rock band has dropped a demon-like video for a new single called "Won't Stand Down". The video was released on 14 January.
With a dark video and hard metal sound, the group uses the message of confronting bullies. In the video, which was directed by Jared Hogan and shot in Kiev, Ukraine, a mysterious but weak person absorbs the energy of the Dark Legion and evolves.
"Won't Stand Down is a song about standing your ground against bullies, whether that be on the playground, at work, or anywhere", frontman Matt Bellamy explained in a statement. "Protecting yourself from coercion and sociopathic manipulation and to face adversity with strength, confidence, and aggression".
Fans of the UK band have been amazed by the industrial sound distortion and powerful riff guitars on the new track.
