Muse are poised to release their new album, 'Drones', on June 5, but before they do they're kicking off their Psycho UK tour with a gig at Ulster Hall Belfast.

The surprise gig is happening on Sunday and tickets go on sale from 9.30am this morning (March 12).  A fan club presale is already underway.

Of the album, Matt Bellamy said, "To me, 'Drones' are metaphorical psychopaths which enable psychopathic behaviour with no recourse.  The world is run by Drones utilizing Drones to turn us all into Drones.  This album 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."

The first single from the album, “Dead Inside”, will release the week of March 23rd. The band will premiere the album track “Psycho”, via their YouTube channel at 6:00pm GMT on 12 March.  The song will be available worldwide immediately when pre-ordering the album Drones, beginning at 7:30PM GMT that same day.

The band have also announced that beginning on Sunday, March 15th at Belfast’s Ulster Hall they will embark on a six date smaller venue UK tour. The Psycho UK Tour also plays Glasgow, Newport, Exeter, Manchester and Brighton.
