Dubstep is happening, people, and you can’t stop it. After being sprinkled in mainstream pop songs from the likes of Britney Spears and Madonna, and having the genre’s current king Skrillex win a slew of Grammys, the wobbly bass has now found a home in the rock genre. Muse released a trailer today (June 6) to promote the release of their follow-up to 2009′s The Resistance, titled The 2nd Law. Over a montage of newsreel and apocalyptic footage, we hear a cinematic choral instrumental that eventually descends into a dubstep-scratching breakdown with a furious-looking robot singing along.
MTV notes that the band said their next release would be “something radically different”, and named French electronic act Justice as an inspiration. If the song in this preview is any indication, it appears Muse is ready to join the rest of the music industry on the dancefloor.
Muse’s sixth studio album The 2nd Law will be released this September.
