New Music Discovery: Muse "Dead Inside"

Matt Bellamy and Ben Gibbard should start a Sad Dudes Club. It's hard not to pick up on an undercurrent from these guys talking about failed relationships which will hopefully inspire some stunning, heavy new material on their respective upcoming albums - Drones 6/9 and Kintsugi 3/31. Now let's not read too much into the titles I suppose.

Rolling Stone offered a little more light borrowing from a statement from Matthew Bellamy about Drones and first single "Dead Inside", "It's a story song with a twist at the end that dovetails into the tale Muse are weaving on Drones. "This is where the story of the album begins, where the protagonist loses hope and becomes 'Dead Inside,' therefore vulnerable to the dark forces introduced in 'Psycho' and which ensue over the next few songs on the album, before eventually defecting, revolting and overcoming these dark forces later in the story."

What do you think of this Peter Gabriel-ish first official single from Muse?

 

Here's the first song they let us hear, "Psycho"
