  1. 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.
  2. No doubt! But on the bright side, maybe this is some indication that history might look kindly on the legacy of Muse! They aren't exactly held in particularly high regard these days, at least in my travels; so maybe they're a band that really benefits from nostalgia and hindsight!
  3. Mine hasn't shown up yet which is slightly concerning. Got a shipment confirmation a few weeks ago but UPS doesn't recognize the tracking number. I ordered pre-ordered the orange vinyl so if it's lost, I predict the only option is refund-town. Oh well, can't win em all! To those who have received theirs, I salute you and am living vicariously through you!
  4. On a semi-unrelated note, Pitchfork finally reviewed OoS and I must say, Iā€™m pleasantly surprised! https://pitchfork.com/reviews/albums/muse-origin-of-symmetry/
  5. Has me wondering how the vinyl pressing will sound. I doubt they had vinyl in mind when mixing so I can't imagine it'll make that much of a difference. Still keen to check it out.
  6. Maybe the Christmas spirit will compel them šŸŽ„
  7. So we're theoretically looking at a June release at the latest? Hell, that's only a few months away, as far as I'm concerned! We're practically there folks!
  8. I could get on board with that. Let next year be devoted to album rollout and fest gigs and 2022 can be devoted to the tour.
  9. Why do you say autumn? Not that I'm complaining; listening to the new record with a pumpkin spice in hand sounds delightful! You may say I'm a dreamer
  10. *screams into pillow* Thats fine im goody goody with that šŸ˜ŽšŸ˜ŽšŸ˜ŽšŸ˜Ž
  11. "Time to crack on with a new album" Is the implication that they're ABOUT to hit the studio? Or just a sly nod to them already working on it? If it's the former, I reckon we should be anticipating a new album early NEXT year. Which is fine, I'm just going to need to take a long walk and think about things.
  12. What's John Leckie up to these days? šŸ˜JK I'm fully on board with Costey; he seems to have really good chemistry with the band, possibly the best.
  13. They've announced yet another festival date in June of next year which seems to all but confirm that a festival circuit might be coming next summer. I daren't get my hopes up, but I'm slightly more optimistic that a full tour could then be coming in the spring or fall of next year, if previous fest circuit patterns are any indication.
  14. If it's nothing more than getting them nostalgic, I'll be a happy camper. The reason Drones didn't work as a back to basics album, for me anyways, was that it had the heavy instrumentation but lacked the soul of the earlier albums. I would be interested to hear a modern sounding, poppy album that was creatively linked to their earlier work, if such a thing is even possible. Or I might be way off base. šŸ˜˜
  15. Mildly surprised Matt's gasps were left in! I don't have an issue with them personally but they seem like something that would be on Matt's chopping block! Gotta say I'm loving this version of Mega! I'm a little ashamed to admit it but this is one track that I've always considered objectively great but didn't pay much mind to but the strings are a small addition but add a lot imo.
  16. I already kinda assumed/hoped this but hearing someone else echo it really puts some coal in my hype train! Every album cycle holds some deep meaning for me and being that this will be my first album as a dad, it will almost inevitably rank highly for me. (Will also be my first tour since 2015 that I wasn't taking classes so we can actually travel if we have to. šŸ˜Ž)
  17. I feel like I have to experience GA at some point. I think it depends on who I go with and what kind of concert experience they prefer.
  18. While I am similarly reluctant about these new mixes but I must admit that I've been playing the new CE pretty much daily thanks mostly to the fact that I have really cheap ear buds for running and the cleaner, cranked up mix of CE hits just right atm.
  19. With a couple festival dates announced for next summer, it gives me just a little sliver of something to read way too much into. Often, but not always, the festival circuit is sandwiched between or is the precursor to a new tour which presupposes a new album as well. Now this could just be the band dipping their toes into playing live again but ya boi's an optimist and a dreamer...
  20. Simultaneously hoping there's a physical/vinyl release and conflicted because I just ordered the ST Tour box set. As always, Muse stays taking my money!
  21. As we eagerly await LP9 news, perhaps some of you would enjoy indulging me with some Muse chatter. For instance, I ma already hard at work planning my next Muse show and plan to make it worth the wait. My plan is to, at the very least, get GA or high dollar seats but it's very likely that I'm going to dish out the extra $$ to get EE tickets. As awesome as it would be to be on the rail, or close to it, I think it might be asking a lot of my wife to stand in an arena for hours before the band actually takes the stage. With seats, our spot would be reserved, at least. Does anyone have experience or, dare I ask, pictures from the first 15 rows? If so, how would you rate it?
  22. Between this and the band announcing a live date next year, this is the most normal I've felt in over a year.
  23. Matt, if youre reading this, I'm not usually one to give artists pointers on their art but I have a few ideas for the new record: 1. Let us listen to it 2.
  24. Imagine Matt hints at the next album being a return to their roots only for it to be an otherwise totally modern Muse record but Matt is breathing into the mic again. Would be a real power move tbh
