Speaking about the album, singer Matt Bellamy has said: "The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones. Drones explores the journey of a human, from their abandonment and loss of hope, to their indoctrination by the system to be a human drone, to their eventual defection from their oppressors."
Concept album much?!
The band has been playing a handful of low key shows finishing with a gig at the Brighton Dome on March 23rd. I've been speaking to drummer Dom Howard about the album's storyline, its first single and the mini-tour.
