English rock band Muse are due to release their latest synth rock album on 9th November 2018, this will be Muse’s eighth studio album since 1999. ‘Simulation Theory’ will differ to the band’s previous three albums which have bought considerably darker themes. The band have since sought lighter influences with the concept of “fantasy becoming real”. The band have already released singles ‘Dig Down’, ‘Thought Contagion’ and ‘Pressure’ which all adhere to the recognisable and nostalgic sounds of Muse. So, Muse fans, rejoice!
