Muse have begun writing songs for the follow-up to their 2006 album 'Black Holes And Revelations'.

The Devon trio say they took a break after dates on their world tour - which they will wrap up offically at V Festival this August - but have recently got back to work.

Dom Howard drummed for Andy Burrows when the Razorlight man played a solo show last night in London, but told NME.COM his main band were active again.

"We've just started writing songs for the new album, whatever it's going to be, you know?" he said. "It's going great, we just started. We're right at the tip at the moment and I think the point is that we've been on the road for so long... It's really about getting back together and getting the ball rolling again and seeing whether it'll roll."

However Frontman Matt Bellamy has told NME.COM he is not yet sure yet what form the record will take - and it may not appear as a conventional album.

"What will come out of that is impossible to say," he declared. "It may just be albums, but it may be a stream of singles, or it may just be one 50-minute symphony, do you know what I mean? Who knows?"
