Label: Warner Bros
Hot off the Thursday Morning Press is some much-anticipated Muse News, a brand new album titled Simulation Theory.¬† From the Stranger Things-inspired cover art to the Tron-tastic music video for The Dark Side, it appears that the UK trio is going synthwave.¬† Chris, Dominic and Matthew are coming after all 5 of your senses, throwing in every aesthetic from the 80s and slathering an extra coat of sheen on the production value.¬† The synths are crisp, the texture layers are infinite and their souls are digital.
On the band’s store page is a deluxe boxset with lots of bells and whistles, most importantly a second disc full of alternate versions, acoustic renditions and live cuts.¬† If you’re amused by the Muse, then this one’s a no-brainer.¬† Check out The Dark Side below and grab the boxset after the ‘buy’ link.
