Muse have unveiled the official
video for their Olympic song 'Survival' - you can watch it
'Survival' is the official track for the London 2012
Olympics, with the video featuring classic clips of athletes at the
Games. The track will be played when athletes enter the stadium, in
the lead up to the medal ceremony and also as the theme for all
international TV coverage.
The band have said the song is
inspired by "total conviction and pure determination to win". It
was debuted on Radio 1 last week (June 27).
Writing about 'Survival', the band said: "We are honoured
that the Olympics have chosen our song to officially represent the
London 2012 Olympic Games across the globe."
The band's new album is the follow-up to 2009's 'The
Resistance' and has been recorded in London. Little has been
revealed about the album so far, but bassist Chris Wolstenholme
previously said that the band wanted to do "something radically
different" on their new LP.
The Devon trio will play five shows across the UK in
October. The gigs begin at Glasgow's SECC on October 24, before the
band move onto London's O2 Arena for two shows on October 26 and
27. They then play Birmingham LG Arena on October 30 before
finishing up at Manchester Arena on November 1.
