Muse Excited About New Album

Band to start recording in September

In an interview with the BBC bassist Chris Wolstenhome revealed that they will start writing and recording next month.

"September and October, that's when we're going to get into the studio to start writing the new album," he said.

Part of the reason for recording a new album is that the band are reluctant to play new songs on tour because new material is always bootlegged before the record is finished.

"I think by the time you've finished touring an album, which is usually a two-year cycle, it's something you start thinking about a lot,' he said.

"It's difficult to bring new songs into the live set before you record them with the internet and dodgy recordings of live songs getting out there before they've been released on an album.

"People tend not to play new songs live any more. That's why we want to get into the studio, make another album and then tour it.

"We're always going to be the kind of band that want to get out and play live," he continued. "As the years go on there's that temptation to cut the touring down less and less but we still love playing live.

"I can't ever imagine we'll be the kind of band that cut the touring down significantly."
