Dynamic English rock band Muse recently returned with a pair of thunderously epic tracks, and the latest — “Will of the People” — turns up the bombast to 11.

The title track from a new album due Aug. 26, the video is futuristic, dystopian and high-tech:

Said Muse mastermind Matt Bellamy of the song/video:

“’Will of the People’ is fictional story set in a fictional metaverse on a fictional planet ruled by a fictional authoritarian state run by a fictional algorithm manifested by a fictional data centre running a fictional bank printing a fictional currency controlling a fictional population occupying a fictional city containing a fictional apartment where a fictional man woke up one day and thought “fuck this.”
