Now this is a very interesting one. Muse have returned to a guitar heavy vibe with bits of industrial tinges and even a metalcore-esque breakdown with their new song “Won’t Stand Down.” Speaking on the meaning of the song “Won’t Stand Down’ is a song about standing your ground against bullies, whether that be on the playground, at work or anywhere,” says vocalist/guitarist Matt Bellamy. “Protecting yourself from coercion and sociopathic manipulation and to face adversity with strength, confidence and aggression.” The song was produced by Muse and Dan Lancaster (Bring Me The Horizon). Hopefully this is a sign that a new Muse album will go back to their “roots” and bring back the rock!
