Album news, from NME.com

'There's a song on the album called "A Soldier's Poem", written from the perspective of a soldier, who kind of thinks "I'm out here risking my life, for what?"', he said.

Bellamy added that themes of impending apocalypse also visited on "Absolution" are more specific this time round. "There is a theme on the album, it's that kind of connection to the cycles of history where the tension builds up and then it's released. Whether it's catastrophic like a nuclear war, or whether aliens come down and it's brilliant, but there's definitely a sense that something big is about to happen."
