(Classic Rock) Muse's seventh album Drones has given the band their first-ever U.S. number 1 placing. The follow-up to 2012's The 2nd Law has topped the Billboard 200 after its release on June 8. It's also hit the heights of charts in the UK, France, Japan, Australia and many European countries.

Frontman Matt Bellamy described Drones as "a modern metaphor for what it is to lose empathy," adding: "Through modern technology, and drone warfare in particular, it's possible to do horrific things at a great distance - without actually feeling any of the consequences, or even feeling responsible.

Last month he admitted to doubts over working with producer Mutt Lange before recording began. He said: "I didn't want us to be turned into a kind of top 40 act. He wasn't like that at all - he was totally into the concept." Read more here.
