Muse's eighth studio album, Simulation Theory follows-up 2015's Drones which debuted at No. 1 in 21 countries including the U.S. (their first to do so) and took home a Grammy for Best Rock Album in 2016. The science fiction-themed record was produced by the band, along with several award-winning producers, including Rich Costey, Mike Elizondo, Shellback and Timbaland. Simulation Theory is introduced by the era-blending singles "Something Human," "Thought Contagion," "Dig Down" and "The Dark Side," all featuring Matt Bellamy's unmistakable soaring vocals and blistering guitars and the driving rhythm section of Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard which have become a hallmark of Muse's stadium-filling sound. Artwork for the album was illustrated by digital artist Kyle Lambert, who has done the poster art for Stranger Things, Jurassic Park and many other films.
