Muse have revealed the big-budget video for their new single 'Madness'. Watch the video below.

The track is the first official single to be taken from the band's sicth album The 2nd Law and sees the band mixing dubstep elements with their trademark epic, stadium rock sound.

The video is a futuristic, apocalyptic affair, featuring great looking criminals pursued by a faceless police force. Muse perform in a dark room, illuminated by flickering lights while the action takes place around them. The video closes with an epic showdown on a train platform while the handsome couple at the centre of the action make out in the middle of the madness.

Matt Bellamy recently revealed that he didn't expect people to take the band's new album seriously, saying: "We don’t care if people don’t necessarily take songs like that 100 per cent seriously. We’re not afraid of our eccentricities, we’re not afraid of going into almost Monty Python rock," reported ContactMusic.

The single is their first official release since 2010's 'Neutron Star Collision' and follows their official Olympics anthem 'Survival' and instrumental dubstep experiment, 'Unsustainable'.
