The band had revealed previously that they would be starting work on the follow-up to their sixth album 'The 2nd Law' in May 2014. Drummer Dom Howard commented: "We're going to start this year… 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."
Speaking about their plans for the new album, Matt Bellamy said earlier this year: "I have this strong feeling that the next album should be something that really does strip away the additional things that we've experimented with on the last two albums, which is electronics, symphonics and orchestral work and all that kind of stuff."
Muse played a number of shows earlier in 2014, including a headline slot at California's Coachella Festival in April.
