Muse to release Halloween-themed video?

Elvira features in new teaser for upcoming 'Muse Halloween Special'

Muse have shared another teaser for a project they are calling the “Muse Halloween Special”.

The project was first teased with a clip on Wednesday (October 26). Now the band’s frontman Matt Bellamy has taken to Instagram to post a screenshot from said project, along with what looks to be a promotional image.

The screenshot sees a leather-clad Bellamy and bandmates performing in front of a backdrop of a screaming woman.

The second image shows cult horror star Cassandra Peterson, best known for her role as Elvira, Mistress of the Dark.

See both images below, along with the earlier video.

It is not yet known what Muse’s “Halloween Special” will involve, but fans have speculated that it could be a Halloween-themed video, new single or short film.

Meanwhile, Muse’s ambitious plans for their next world tour have been revealed, with their director claiming that the band want to ‘levitate on magnets’.

The Devonshire trio have recently come off the road from their huge ‘Drones’ world tour – which saw them not only headline Glastonbury but play a run of arenas and stadiums with an adventurous stage show that saw them perform ‘in the round’.

Renowned for their extravagant live set up, now it looks like the band could be stepping up their game even further for future shows.

“It is ridiculous, but trying to dream up something more adventurous is always our challenge, where does the next bolt of lightning come where you capture the essence of it and trying to put it into a record or a tour, it’s definitely my permanent challenge,” the band’s tour director Glen Rowe said at the MUSEXPO conference, reports Music Week.

“We want to do a stage made of magnets so the band can levitate on other magnets. It’s those questions that keep me awake every night of my life. If there are any magnet technicians out there, please come and see me because that’s what we’re trying to achieve.”

Frontman Matt Bellamy recently teased that the band could play a more intimate club tour – in which their setlist is comprised of requests made by fans. There is currently an ongoing petition made by fans to convince Muse to do it – which you can sign here.
