A Muse fan is trying to convert Matt Bellamy and co to the Mormon religion.

Following on from the story that The Killers' Brandon Flowers hopes the two bands will collaborate, Matt Bellamy received a copy of The Book Of Mormon, the religion's sacred text, in the post.

The Muse frontman posted a picture of the present on the band's official Twitter, saying "Weird fan gift!" The book came with a handwritten note saying "This book changed my life, I give it to with all my heart…" Brandon Flowers, who earlier this week hinted at a hook-up between the two bands, is a Mormon. He recently appeared on a Swedish chat show, where he defended his beliefs against renowned atheist Richard Dawkins. Watch the video below.

Flowers revealed his hopes of a collaboration to The Sun ahead of the MTV Europe Music Awards last weekend, where both bands performed. Flowers said: “We’ve become good friends with Muse. We get along so well, so I’d never rule out working together. We would be trying to outdo each other. It would be spectacular, the choruses would be huge."
