British trio Muse are releasing a new album, Simulation Theory, on November 9 via Warner Bros. Now they have shared another new song from the album, “Pressure,” via a wild video that stars actor Terry Crews (Brooklyn Nine-Nine). Lance Drake directed the video, which takes place at a 1984 high school homecoming dance with Muse as a local band named Rocket Baby Doll, with frontman Matt Bellamy sporting a bit of a Marty McFly at the Enchantment Under the Sea dance look. Things get out of hand when creatures emerge from the science lab after a couple making out accidentally turn on a laser and the band have to fight them off with the help of Crews, who plays a teacher turned Ghostbusters-esque monster hunter. Watch the video below.

When Simulation Theory was announced they shared another song from it, the Muse-meets-Daft-Punk-sounding “The Dark Side,” via a 1980s-styled video for the song also directed by Lance Drake. It was one of our Songs of the Week.

Muse worked with several producers on Simulation Theory, including Rich Costey, Mike Elizondo, Shellback and Timbaland. The album will be released in three formats: Standard (11 tracks), Deluxe (16 tracks), and Super Deluxe (21 tracks). Kyle Lambert did the cover artwork for the Standard and Deluxe editions and he has previously done the poster art for Stranger Things, Jurassic Park, and other films. Paul Shipper illustrated the Super Deluxe cover and his previous work includes posters for Star Wars: The Last Jedi, Avengers: Affinity War, and others.

Last year Muse shared a video for another new song, “Dig Down,” which was also directed by Lance Drake and also had a retro sci-fi vibe, with frontman Matt Bellamy looking a bit like 1980s computer generated cult character Max Headroom. Then in February they shared another Lance Drake-directed video for the new song “Thought Contagion,” which ended with a “Thriller”-like dance routine featuring various monsters. Then in July they shared another new song, “Something Human,” also via a 1980s themed Lance Drake-directed video. All three songs are also featured on the album.
