Muse have delayed the release of their new ‘The 2nd Law‘ album, which will now hit the shelves in October.
The British band had originally planned to release their sixth studio LP on September 17th, but have confirmed it will now come out on October 1st in the UK, and a day later in the US.
As yet, no official reason has been given for the delay, though a hectic September when a raft of high profile albums are due for release could be a reason. Last month, high street retailers HMV made their grievances public with regards to the busy run of releases which are planned for next month which, along with Muse’s initial issue date, is also set to include the likes Mumford & Sons, The Killers and The xx.
“For six years we’ve been pushing the message to record labels, but this is the worst example we’ve ever had,” John Hirst, HMV’s music manager, was quoted as saying in The Independent, referring to their belief that the release of popular LPs should be spread out over the year.Just Published:
