  1. I do agree with this. They seem to find the necessary inspiration they need pretty quickly. (And just to reiterate: I am perfectly happy with new Muse sooner than later.) With that said, they're a very busy band and have been for most of their career. Taking a longer hiatus would be unprecedented and may yield unpredictable results. I don't think it would be a bad idea, personally. Giving themselves some breathing room, imo, would allow them more time to flesh out ideas, styles, and production. This is purely speculative, but I think we could see something really new and interesting. Keeping with the tradition of being Mr. Unpopular Opinion (seriously guys, Big Freeze is SO good!), I would like to go on record as saying that I want Muse to do their own equivalent of "Tranquility Base Casino + Hotel". I don't know what that would mean in the world of Muse but I'm thinking fewer singles and a full album of The Void, Exogenesis Symphony, Hoodoo, etc.
  2. I'm comfortable with silence. For now. I might be a little more antsy by the end of the year. But just knowing that they might be in studio by the end of the year is just enough to keep me going. That first in-studio Instagram post always gets my little heart going!
  3. Emotionally and selfishly, I hope they adhere to the familiar 3-year schedule because I want new music and tour. But I've recently been thinking it would be cool if they pulled a Strokes and took a 7 year break and then return with a comeback album, maybe even double LP. But... maybe for LP10. Edit: With that said, I'm very excited about this thread; I need an outlet to talk about Muse.
  4. I’m going to cross my fingers that Matt’s definition of “for a while” means “this year”. Because if there’s no UK Origin your, then the odds of a US tour go from slim to none.
  5. Living in North Carolina, I'm in a similar boat. If I'm not mistaken, T2L was the last time we got a proper 2nd US leg. After the Drones tour, we got the amphitheater tour in 2017 which was great but not quite the same thing. They toured for SL for a good while so I understand they probably need a break but it kills me to think that I might have to wait a few years to see them again.
  6. Man, I’m right there with you! I’d give a kidney for them to hit NA again this year or next but it seems like all signs are pointing to the tour wrapping up this fall. I would love to be proven wrong though!
  7. Commenter under latest Insta post asked if they were planning to come to Argentina and Muse replied with "News next week". Sounds like good news for our friends in South America. I imagine it'll just be a handful of dates, as has been the trend for this tour. But, were I a fool who too often got his hopes up, I might ponder whether a few more US dates might be in our future. Probably not, but as always, a man can dream...
  8. Yeah, it makes me sad to think they may be entering the early stages of becoming a dad rock band. I really want to believe that they have at least one more real hit left in them. This isn’t to say that it’s all about making hits and getting YouTube views, but I believe there’s way to be business smart and find a way for them to really study what works in today’s music climate and apply it to themselves in some way. I think Propaganda is a shining example of this; I was as terrified as anyone else when I heard Timbaland was producing but imo it worked wonders. P.S. Anyone seen this? Dom mentions coming up with ideas for the next album (in the studio?) as early as next year. Is this a normal pace for them? I mean, I guess it is. Two years after Drones we got Dig Down. [Edited for spelling]
  9. Fair point. I’ve actually yet to get actual decent tix to a Muse show so I haven’t ever really had to worry about queuing. Plus I think I’m just getting old and like being outside in a lawn chair. With that said, I imagine there ought to be some incentive for the band to do these tours. With the stripped back production of these shows, they’re likely saving money. But I’m the least business savvy fella on these here boards so who knows.
  10. Sort of off topic but how well was the amphitheater tour received overall by fans? I’m a big fan of outside venues and think it would be pretty cool if they did amphitheater tours during their “off seasons” especially in places that got skipped over during their more major tours.
  11. The most relatable thing I’ve ever read on these boards!
  12. Welp, that’s 2 major tours that have skipped over NC so looks like it’s time to move. Sucks because my wife just started a new job but hey, her fault for marrying a man child fanboy. 🤷‍♂️
  13. I will forever be angry that we aren’t getting a song called “Square Root of Evil” from Muse.
  14. I’m actually surprised GUaF and SH aren’t regulars on the setlist. They seem to have been written to be crowd pleasers, so you’d think they would be more heavily rotated than Dig Down or Algorithm. Tbf I imagine the vocals in GUaF would take a toll on Matt. Not that I’m complaining but I would personally sacrifice one of the 2 Algorithms and Dig Down for a Void, Blockades, or even SH which I have a huge soft spot for.
