  2. To answer the question about half a step down first (since it's easier): Cave in 2009-2010, Falling Down in 2012, Showbiz since 2017, Muscle Museum since 2015, Sing For Absolution from late 2003 and onward, Starlight had a very small number of performances in the original key before being lowered, Invincible was lowered in 2008 iirc, I have a feeling that Exo-Politics was lowered but can be wrong on that. *deep breath* No lowered songs on The Resistance, then Madness on T2L and honestly after that is when I stopped paying attention to Muse's normal tours. Regarding tempo, a bunch of their songs changed tempo in their early career before everything was set to a metronome. New Born used to be the most popular example of fans whining because of the lowered tempo live. In reality they just started playing it at the same speed as the studio version. It's just that they had a period of a few years when they played it faster.

  4. Hype train will leave the station next year for sure but hoping to at least get the all aboard this year with a single. At the very least, I'm hopeful that we wont have to get too deep into 2022 before we're full steam ahead, especially since they have a handful of fest dates.

  5. Ok. We all long for new music, am I right? RIGHT??? I CAN‘T HEAR YOU !!!! Seems that Matt was at Abbey Road. Maybe with somebody else, we don‘t know it. He‘s headed back to LA, Dom was (is) in France, Chris in the UK (I guess). Autumn is on its way, means more album-releases ahead. Or singles, I mean songs. Will Muse release something, if only one song soon? I need some hype guysssss 😁😁😁😁😁
