Muse has shared a new single called “Pressure,” along with an accompanying music video. The song is the fifth that the band has issued from its forthcoming eighth studio album, Simulation Theory, which is due out on November 9th. Previous songs were “Thought Contagion,” “Dig Down,” “Something Human” and “The Dark Side.”
The video for “Pressure” is an epic, consciously silly, over-the-top ’80s throwback, featuring everything from a John Hughes-style school dance to Terry Crews zapping gremlins with a Ghostbuster-like proton pack. Previous clips from the LP have also played off the nostalgia for ’80s movies, with time travel, lasers and other pop culture references.
The band apparently intends to release videos for every song on Simulation Theory, with all of them uniting into a single conceptual film.
