Muse have completed work on their new album, ‘The Resistance’ which will be released in the UK on September 14th. In a post on Twitter, bass player Chris Wolstonholme said: “HI, Quick update. Youll be pleased to know the album is well and truly finished. Off to NY tomorrow for mastering and parties. Chris”
The new album has been recorded in Lake Como and Milan. Mark ‘Spike’ Stent, who worked on Oasis’ 2000 album ‘Standing On The Shoulder Of Giants, has mixed the album, which was produced by the band.
Singer Matt Bellamy has previously discussed the make-up of the album, telling 6Music: “A symphonic album has turned up here, like a full collaboration with an orchestra. There’s definitely a few things on the album which are segueing into each other and it’s all very orchestral, but that could take over the album, so it could actually be kind of classical act basically, and move away from rock all together. We’ll be knocking on Classic FM’s door, you know?”
The band have previously announced a European Tour in the autumn, and they will also be supporting U2 on their ’360 Degrees’ tour in the US.
