Muse reveal details of new album

Soldiers, pasta and tape machines involved

Muse have revealed details about their newly finished album.

The band are currently mixing the follow-up to 2003’s ‘Absolution’ and, in a posting on their official website muse.mu, say they will announce touring and release plans “real soon”.

Talking about the album the posting says: “Some new songs deal with AWOL soldiers, zeta reticulans, the sound of Joe Meek’s tape machine being thrown down the stairs, the private thoughts of General Zhu Chengu, feeling strangely comfortable collecting fire wood whilst wielding an axe and, of course, how to store pasta for 12 years using nitrogen flushing.”

The band also insisted that despite recent reports, ‘Crying Shame’ will not be the first single.

Muse are strongly tipped to headline this year’s Carling Weekend: Reading And Leeds Festivals.
