Muse have revealed that they will be performing their track 'Supremacy' with a full orchestra and choir at this year's Brit Awards.

The rock trio, who have been nominated for Best British Group and Best Live Act, will perform the first track from their sixth studio album, 'The 2nd Law', at the ceremony live from London's O2 on February 20.

Speaking to Radio.com, front man Matt Bellamy said: "We're going to perform there hopefully with a full orchestra and choir to do a full rendition of 'Supremacy', which is the first song on the album. It'll be nice to perform with an orchestra."

Bellamy and co will join Mumford and Sons, Beyonce, One Direction and Robbie Williams on the line up of performers at the ceremony which will once again be presented by James Corden.

The nominations for this year's awards were announced earlier this month with Alt-J, Mumford And Sons and Muse and all picking up multiple nods.

Muse are set to return to the UK this summer for a four-date stadium tour. They kick off the shows at Coventry's Ricoh Arena on May 22, 2013, before playing a pair of dates at London's Emirates Stadium on May 25 and 26, and wrapping up at Manchester's Etihad Stadium on June 1.
