Hot off the Thursday Morning Press is some much-anticipated Muse News, a brand new album titled Simulation Theory.Â 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.Â 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.Â 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.Â If you’re amused by the Muse, then this one’s a no-brainer.Â Check out The Dark Side below and grab the boxset after the ‘buy’ link.
