Drones spans 12 tracks. A teaser track “Psycho” is scheduled to go online tomorrow, March 12th. The official lead single “Dead Inside” arrives on March 23rd.
Says frontman Matt Bellamy of the new album, “To me, ‘Drones’ are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behavior with no recourse. The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones. Drones 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.”
The band documented the Drones recording process with a number of brief video clips. Check out a few of those below.
