Muse drummer Dominic Howard has said the band intend to start work on a new album next month as Coachella is about to finally mark the end of touring duties sparked by 2012’s ‘The 2nd Law‘.
Muse stopped to remember the 20th anniversary Kurt Cobain‘s death with a cover of the Nirvana track ‘Lithium‘ at last weekend’s Lollapalooza event in Brazil. Fan footage has been uploaded to YouTube and can be viewed below.
Muse’s performance at Lollapalooza marked a swift return to live action for the band after they were forced to cancel a show at the Grand Metropole in São Paulo on April 3rd due to an unspecified illness.
The group are pressing on with laying down a new album, aiming to have something released possibly as early as this December.
“I’ve written some good tracks actually,” frontman Matt Bellamy previously told Triple J. “We haven’t had a chance to rehearse them out yet. We’ll take a break next year for a little few months and then we’ll get in the studio. If it all goes very well, the new album could well be early 2015 or late 2015. Christmas 2014 might be when we release our next single.”
Muse were forced to pull a show in Brazil yesterday (April 3rd) due to an unspecified band illness but still hope to fulfill their commitments at Lollapalooza – also in Brazil – this weekend.
Songs from The Beatles, U2, Muse, Kings Of Leon and more have been provided by the three major record labels to a new album which aims to raise funds for those in the Philippines affected by Typhoon Haiyan.
Muse fans can now get an audio only preview of the trio’s ultra high definition concert film Muse – Live At Rome Olympic Stadium, taped in July 2013, which is coming to CD and DVD next month. Have a listen below.
The band’s Italian gig was shot in 4K – the first concert movie to be presented in the format – and received a cinema release earlier this month.
“This is the biggest tour we’ve done in terms of scale and production value and it’s definitely the show we’re most proud of so we’re really excited to be able to release it as the first ever ultra high definition concert film,” the band have said.
Muse are turning attentions back to traditional instruments as they chase a ‘rawer’ sound on their new album, reports frontman Matt Bellamy.
