Muse Court Chaos on 'Madness'

A loving couple stands alone in a world of police brutality

By |

Muse's new video for the dubstep-laced track "Madness" continues with the dark, paranoid political overtones of earlier clip "Unsustainable." Though the track ebbs gently with pulsing bass and wafting melodies, the contrasting imagery depicts a chaotic scene with rioters overtaking a subway station and battling police in riot gear. Caught in the middle is a loving couple – a glimmer of hope in a brutal world of unrelenting oppression.

"Madness" is on Muse's upcoming album The 2nd Law, out October 2nd.
