While it may be awhile before you can dance to Muse songs live and in-person, you’ll soon be able to do just that in virtual reality.

Songs by the British rock trio will be featured in an upcoming update to Synth Riders, a VR rhythm game in which you dance in a neon-drenched world while hitting different virtual objects and avoiding virtual obstacles. It basically looks like the world that Muse’s ’80s-influenced album Simulation Theory was created to soundtrack.

The Muse Synth Riders update will be released January 14. For more info, visit SynthRidersVR.com.

In related news, Muse just released their expanded Simulation Theory box set last week. It includes the Simulation Theory concert film/narrative movie, which premiered in IMAX theaters over the summer.
