New Muse On The Horizon


A glammed-up rock stomper, “Uprising” is the first single from the band’s self-produced fifth studio album The Resistance, which will be released by Warner Bros. Records on September 15th. Recorded in Italy, the album was mixed by famed audio engineer Mark ‘Spike’ Stent, who is known for his work with U2, Depeche Mode, No Doubt, and Oasis, among many others. The single is the first new music from Muse since Black Holes and Revelations, which debuted at Number 9 on Billboard’s album chart in July 2006. Over the last few years, Muse- comprised of vocalist/guitarist Matt Bellamy, bassist Chris Wolstenholme, and drummer Dom Howard- have played to sold-out crowds worldwide in support of Black Holes and Revelations, which spawned the Modern Rock chart hits “Knights Of Cydonia,” “Starlight,” and “Supermassive Black Hole” (also featured on the soundtrack to the blockbuster 2008 film Twilight). In the U.S. alone, the band, who hail from the tiny town of Teignmouth in Devon, England, performed at the Lollapalooza Festival, the Austin City Limits Music Festival, Las Vegas’s Vegoose Festival, and KROQ’s Almost Acoustic Christmas. They also sold out New York City’s Madison Square Garden and The Forum in Los Angeles.

In anticipation of their new album, Muse will perform at the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards on September 13th, two days before The Resistance is released in the U.S. In addition, the band will open select shows for U2, including two shows at Giants Stadium in New York, this fall.
