Muse will enter the studio to begin recording the follow-up to their 2009 fifth album 'The Resistance' in September.

Bass player Chris Wolstenholme said that the trio will be heading straight in to the studio after they headline Reading And Leeds Festivals at the end of August.

Speaking on BBC Radio 1, the bassist said of the band's recording plans: "September and October, that's when we're going to get into the studio to start writing the new album."

Wolstenholme also indicated that the band have no intention of scaling back on their live commitments in the future, despite having had a fairly quiet 2011 in terms of live dates.

He said:

We're always going to be the kind of band that want to get out and play live. As the years go on there's that temptation to cut the touring down less and less but we still love playing live. I can't ever imagine we'll be the kind of band that cut the touring down significantly.


The bassist also said that the band would not be debuting any new material during their Reading and Leeds headline sets.

He added:

It's difficult to bring new songs into the live set before you record them with the internet and dodgy recordings of live songs getting out there before they've been released on an album. People tend not to play new songs live any more. That's why we want to get into the studio, make another album and then tour it.
