After much fan speculation, Muse have seemingly confirmed the rumoured title of their new album with a series of cryptic images on Instagram.
Last month, the band uploaded footage from the studio as they continue to finish work on their long-awaited seventh album, showing a control desk that seemed to reveal that the working title of the record would be Drones.
Now, the band have again used the social media site to confirm the title - showing magazine covers of Muse with the words and their eyes scratched out along with the hastag #MuseDrones:
The band have been hard at work in Canada and Italy, working with legendary AC/DC producer Robert 'Mutt' Lange on a back-to-basics 'heavier' follow-up to 2012's The 2nd Law.
With a summer of festival tour dates looming, fans are expecting news or a taster of new material to drop any day now.
