Check out this Live Lounge session before both acts perform at this weekend's Download Festival
Download Festival 2015 runs at Donington Park in Leicestershire from June 12-14, with Muse scheduled to headline the Saturday night (June 13) and Enter Shikari topping the second stage bill on Sunday (June 14). Watch the latter group’s rendition of ‘Supermassive Black Hole’ for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge below.
Muse have promised to bring “as much fire as possible” to Download Festival this weekend. Appearing on The Graham Norton Show last week (June 5), frontman Matt Bellamy promised a spectacular performance for their headline set. “We’re definitely going to take that to Donington where all the metallers are – we’re going to give them as much fire as possible,” he said after playing ‘Mercy’ live on the show. Watch Muse perform ‘Mercy’ on the show here.
Muse’s seventh studio album ‘Drones’, their follow-up to 2012’s ‘The 2nd Law’, was released this week (June 8). Matt Bellamy has claimed that ‘Drones’ is Muse’s best album, admitting, “That’s not something I’ve been able to say for a while.” Bellamy also recently told NME about visiting the White House and talking conspiracy theories with former Secretary Of State Colin Powell.
