Muse‘s long awaited “Panic Station” video is here and likely to shock your senses.

Matt Bellamy, Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenhome slid into fluorescent tights and stepped right into what looks like a video game. Shot in Tokyo, Japan, the video takes a page right out of a modern children’s TV show with colorful costumes, alien creatures, and a keyboard-player-attacking octopus. And what music video would be complete without a T-Rex? and unlike most high-profile music videos, Muse did not contract outside help. The band was responsible for the entirety of the process; writing, production, direction and editing was all handled in-house.

“Panic Station” is one of only three studio-recorded songsicon1 Video Premiere: Muse Self Produce New Panic Station Video with swearing in it (“Crying Shame” and “Hidden track”). It also marks the first time Matt has sworn on an album track.

Following the premiere (approx. 11am PDT), the band will take to their Twitter page to answer fan questions. Be sure to use #musepanicstation if you want your question answered. You can watch the chat live on Twitter or at ask.muse.mu.

Meanwhile, Muse dedicated their hit “Starlight” to Boston during a sold out show at New York’s Madison Square Garden just hours after the bombing. During the concert, frontman Matt Bellamy also revisited his guitar-driven rendition of the “Star Spangled Banner.”

Muse’s The 2nd Law is was released last October, and the band continues to tour worldwide through September.
