Muse‘s new album ‘The 2nd Law‘ will feature two tracks in which band member Chris Wolstenholme reflects on his recent problems with alcohol – problems that the bassist has admitted left him in ‘a mess’.
Wolstenholme beat his drink addiction by visiting a cognitive behavioural therapist, and has since written the tracks ‘Save Me‘ and ‘Liquid State‘ for Muse’s new album with those issues in mind.
“Both of those lyrics were written at that time when I’d stopped drinking,” he has told NME of the two tracks.
“‘Liquid State’ was written about the person you become when you’re intoxicated and how the two of them are having this fight inside of you and it tears you apart. ‘Save Me’ was about having the family, the wife and kids and, despite all that crap that I’ve put them through, at the end of it you realise they’re still there and they’re the ones who pulled you through.”
‘The 2nd Law’ is due for release on September 17th, with a UK arena tour following in October.Just Published:
