Chicago post-punks MUET are set to release their debut album this week and they've just unveiled a new video to coincide.

'Muscle' is taken from the self-titled album which is set for release on Friday 22 March through Metropolis.

Fronted by singer Steven Seibold, with Daniel Evans on guitar and bass and Vince McAley on drums, the band has a pedigree born of experience in
post-industrial bands like Pigface, Chemlab, Die Warzau and Hate Dept."

Speaking about the making of the video, the band say it "... was the first time we had all actually played in the same room together as a band. We made the album entirely by remote due to our singer living a few hours away from the rest of the band in Chicago. We traded files back and forth, the band recording demos and sending them to Steven and he would send vocal takes back. Somehow, it seemed to gel quickly. So, we're actually playing together for the first time in this video, and we are really playing, not miming along to the song like most videos. We were so excited and perhaps a little nervous to put all the pieces together and play, that it seems to give the video an endearing quality. The editing was done by Vince McAley, while our friend Myles Arwine did a phenomenal job capturing and directing the footage. We can't thank him enough.”
