Muse have shared their new song ‘Kill Or Be Killed’ ahead of the ‘Will Of The People’ album release on August 26th. Featuring granite-heavy riffs, industrial production flourishes and even a death metal growl?!?!

No doubt the track is one of the band’s heaviest songs to date and is already becoming a live favourite.

The song’s visceral intensity inspired a huge reaction from fans (after the band performed ‘Kill Or Be Killed’ at various festivals this Summer), who went on to swarm the band’s social media with calls for it to be released. Responding to the overwhelming “will of the people”, Muse decided to share ‘Kill Or Be Killed’ ahead of the album release.

Speaking about the track, Matt Bellamy said:

“Kill Or Be Killed is Muse at their heaviest! We wanted to update our hard rock sound on this album and with ‘Kill Or Be Killed’ we found a modern metal sound featuring double bass drum action and even a death growl.

Lyrically the song takes influence from my favourite Paul McCartney song ‘Live And Let Die’, a dark take on how life’s adversity can sometimes bring out the worst human instincts to survival at any costs.”

Listen to the track below, the death metal growl kicks in at 03:06
