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

Band members Matt Bellamy, Dominic Howard and Chris Wolstenhome slid into fluorescent tights and fur jackets, and stepped right into what looks like a video game. Shot in Tokyo, the video takes a page right out of a modern children’s TV show with colorful costumes, alien creatures and a keyboardist-attacking octopus. Overall, it gives off a goofy Godzilla vibe. And what music video would be complete without laser beams shooting out of members’ eyes?

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.

Following the premiere (approximately 11 a.m. PDT), the band will take to its Twitter to answer fan-submitted questions. Be sure to use #musepanicstation if you want your question answered. You can watch the chat live on Twitter or at

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