It's been said that seven is the magic number! Now British trio Muse are out to prove that theory very true with their follow up to "The 2nd Law" ditching the electronics for a more back to basics sound that will only use "guitar, bass and drums".
Matt Bellamy, the band's lead singer and guitarist, spoke to Radio.com about their change in sound and what they have planned for the next chapter in their career.
“The last two albums, we sort of veered away from our instruments a little bit. We sort of focused on things like synthesizers, drum machines and various electronics and stuff. I kind of feel like on this next album, we’re going to veer back towards musicianship again and focusing on our own instruments: guitar, bass and drums. It’s probably going to be a bit of a rawer album, and definitely a bit more rock, I’d say.”
Of course like their previous work Bellamy pointed out that the yet untitled album will most likely be a concept record as well, although nothing has been confirmed. “The main focus is we’re gonna record a bunch of music, probably a conceptual album of some kind, so it probably will be album length. But how we release it is up for debate.”
Don't get your hopes up just yet because the frontman says they won't be putting out new music any time soon. “I don’t think we’ll be ready to put another album out until early 2015 or something…we’ll just look at what’s going on and make a judgement in the moment rather than thinking ahead, because things are changing so quickly.”
Aussie fans can expect to see their favorite band when they tour Australia fairly soon with Birds of Tokyo in toe.
