Muse name new album

Rockers reveal title via Twitter

Muse have revealed the name of their new album today (May 22) through their Twitter page.

This morning the band announced that their fifth record will be titled ‘The Resistance’ via their page on the social networking site, Twitter/musewire.

The band have been working on the follow-up to 2006’s ‘Black Holes and Revelations’ for the past year in Milan and Lake Como in Italy. The album is being produced by the band and mixed by Mark ‘Spike’ Stent (Oasis, Depeche Mode).

Frontman Matt Bellamy had previously revealed that an orchestra had been recruited to play on the album, which he decribed as “symphonic”.

‘The Resistance’ is expected to be released in September.
