Video Premiere: Muse, ‘Resistance’

Muse, already one of the biggest bands in England, have been making inroads in the States recently. Appearing on the cover of Spin, releasing their fifth studio album The Resistance to great acclaim, even playing on Saturday Night Live. Those milestones aside, much of whatever success they’ve achieved up to this point is down to their amazing live show; an experience documented in their new video for “Resistance.”

Directed by Wayne Isham (Metallica, Britney Spears, Lambert, Clarkson, everyone really), “Resistance,” is a vivid visual account of Muse’s live power. After a suitable amount of build up, we’re treated to a quick cutting, visceral barrage of images; jumping from fans to awe-inspiring light show to singer/guitarist Matt Bellamy pouring his heart into the song.

Check out the video below, and if you haven’t already, go check out Muse live. They’re touring the U.S. rather soon.
