Muse made a big announcement last week, and they’re not slowing down yet: On Sunday they kicked off their mini Psycho Tour, and to make the occasion that much more special, they debuted a new song. “Reapers” is taken from their upcoming concept album Drones, due out this June; it is the fifth track on the record.
If you love old school Muse, this song is for you. “Reapers” has a distinct Origin Of Symmetry vibe – everything from the guitars and vocals to the overall energy. Its verses sound chipper enough, but the choruses have more grit, with heavier guitars and whispered warnings of “drones.” So far, Drones is shaping up to be a perfect Muse album. Check out this video of “Reapers” from Barrowland, Glasgow last night:
Last week Muse released the heavy track “Psycho,” and the first single “Dead Inside” is promised for next week. Drones will be released on June 8th in the UK, and June 9th in the United States; you can go to Muse’s official site to pre-order Drones on CD, CD+DVD, 12” double gatefold 180g vinyl, deluxe box set or as a digital download. Be sure to read up on all that we know about Drones so far – including who’s producing it, what it sounds like, and how it will compare to their last two records.
