Could we hear a new Muse album in 2017?
Muse have returned to the recording studio to work on new music – sharing photos of their progress.
Taking to Instagram, frontman Matt Bellamy has shared footage of his son Bing engaged in a drum battle with Muse drummer Dom Howard:
Howard has also shared a photo that shows him laying down a drum track:
“I feel like I say it every time with each album but I feel like it might be time to actually do something a bit more stripped down,” he said.
Since then, he’s shared a photo of himself ‘attempting to write a song on an acoustic guitar’:
Speaking of their ambitious plans for future tours, Bellamy said: “We were just talking about augmented reality. Like Pokemon vibes, using phones because you go to a concert now and everyone’s got a phone and is filming and is taking pictures. Utilising that would be a cool thing.”
This comes after the band’s live director revealed that the band’s plans for their next world tour involve them ‘levitating on magnets‘. Meanwhile, Bellamy teased that the band could play a more intimate club tour – in which their setlist is comprised of requests made by fans.
The frontman also split opinion when he revealed that he voted for Brexit.
