The new song is about “standing your ground against bullies”.

Three years on since the release of ‘Simulation Theory’, Muse are back with new track ‘Won’t Stand Down’.

“‘Won’t Stand Down’ is a song about standing your ground against bullies, whether that be on the playground, at work or anywhere,” Matt Bellamy notes. “Protecting yourself from coercion and sociopathic manipulation and to face adversity with strength, confidence and aggression.”

Accompanied by a new video shot in Ukraine by the award-winning filmmaker Jared Hogan, check it out below.
