Muse have used the video of their latest single, MK Ultra, to raise awareness of human trafficking.
The British rockers - frontman Matthew Bellamy, drummer Dominic Howard and bassist Christopher Wolstenholme - have joined forces with MTV Exit (End Exploitation and Trafficking) to tackle the harrowing subject, following in the footsteps of Radiohead and The Killers.
"We feel honoured to be a part of this important movement to end modern day slavery - it is unacceptable that people are deprived of the most fundamental right to be free," the band said.
They added: "We hope that using our music in the context of such powerful images inspires people to get involved in combating this cruel trade."
The video, which the band unveiled at their Wembley Stadium gig on September 10 and 11, is now available to view on MTV UK and www.mtv.co.uk.
