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‘.
“We’re going to start this year,” Howard told KROQ. “Coachella is our last two gigs, then we’re completely done for touring this album.”
“We’re going to go back in May and start working on some new stuff, so I think we’ll start making it this year. If we can get something out this year, that would be great, but definitely next year.”
Frontman Matt Bellamy outlined his own desire to have new material out sooner rather than later when he chatted with Triple J towards the end of last year, remarking:
“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.”
