Muse had one hell of a ride with their most recent album, Absolution. The trio went from a small cult following here in the US to some well-deserved success. If you happen to still be on the fence about Muse, snag a copy of Origin Of Symmetry and check out “Megalomania”. The overpowering pipe organ at the conclusion of that track still gives me chills.
The band is currently mixing their upcoming album, which they revealed in a message on their official website. They said: “Some new songs deal with AWOL soldiers, zeta reticulans, the sound of Joe Meek’s tape machine being thrown down the stairs, the private thoughts of General Zhu Chengu, feeling strangely comfortable collecting fire wood whilst wielding an axe and, of course, how to store pasta for 12 years using nitrogen flushing.”
Although no album title or release date has been announced, details are coming relatively soon. Muse’s ode to storing pasta will hopefully be here before you know it.
