  1. Has this been posted yet? http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1652821/20101122/muse_uk_.jhtml -- There's a short interview clip on that page as well.
  2. There's also an interview with Muse, but I can only find this one with Chris Vaughan (production manager). I bolded one bit that I thought was quite funny. Source: http://blogs.abc.net.au/triplej/2010/11/muse.html You were here in Australia back in January, headlining the Big Day Out. What are the biggest differences with playing BDO and your own tour, in terms of set-ups? With BDO we’re limited to the physical constraints of the stage that they supply. We’re performing at indoor arenas [on this tour], which allows us to bring our indoor arena production. We have essentially three different touring productions at the moment: the stadium show, the indoor arena one that we used throughout Europe before we came to Australia for the Big Day Out, which we then took to North America; then there’s another North American leg, where we ship everything from the States to Australia. This involves 15 containers of equipment. I don’t know if you’ve seen the YouTube clips from Madison Square Garden and London’s O2 Arena… it’s those sorts of places. The set-up looks amazing for the stadium outdoor show, with that crazy ceiling. It’s incredible. We’re very pleased with the way that’s come out. We went for something completely different to the standard roof. It originated from a sketch that the band gave me and we took it through the engineering processes and managed to come up with something that was truly unique and three-dimensional. You’ve worked with lots of big bands. When it comes to their live show, what unique elements do you think Muse bring to the table? Take That, for example, have a very large, complex, theatrical stage show like Muse do. Their sets are very structured. But with Muse, it’s almost like they want to put on an opera or a theatre production, but because they are fundamentally a rock band the set will always be jumbled up. They won’t play the same set twice, so all the visuals and special effects relative to that show have to be precise enough to work every time yet flexible enough to be able to be dropped in and out, as the set goes. Other bands don’t do that. The guys give us a set list for the show, and sometimes it’s 10 minutes before they go on stage (laughs), because they react emotionally to how they feel that day. They’re not like other bands who get tied down to one set list and that’s just the way it goes night after night. In that respect, we keep the fluidity and anarchy of a rock show but with the structure and visuals that you’d expect at any other major show. It keeps you guys on your toes. Exactly. We need to be geared up to be able to deal with it. I think it makes it so much more interesting, because if you’re playing the same set night after night it could get fairly jaded. What’s the best thing for you personally about working with Muse? It’s more than a specific gimmick or one special effect, because we actually keep that down to a minimum. It’s the presentation and the style of the show, in that it is 360°. How close the audience is — particularly if they’re around the outside and back — is how close they are to the band. The energy that creates… At shows in Brussels or London, I’ve sat and watched the show from behind, and just seeing the band on stage and the crowd out front as well is such a phenomenal sight that it gives it an extra dimension.
  3. Muse got a nomination for Favorite Alternative Rock Artist, up against Phoenix & Vampire Weekend. AMA's this year are on Nov. 21, & voting is open until Nov. 12. Vote here: http://abc.go.com/shows/american-music-awards/vote?vid=3052
  4. Where the Streets Have No Name.mp3 SORRY ABOUT THE TITLE. THIS IS MP3, NOT MP4. Here you go. Where the Streets Have No Name (Feat. The Edge) Live from Glastonbury 2010. Enjoy. The croud is a bit loud in the beginning, but they quiet down a bit.
  5. British group Muse has cemented their position as one of the world's premier rock bands. Their third consecutive number one album in the UK, 'The Resistance', released in 2009, went on to top the charts in a further 21 countries. The 2009-10 tour saw the band playing to sold out arenas and stadiums around the world (including two nights at London's Wembley Stadium and two nights at Paris' Stade de France) selling 1.5 million tickets along the way. "As the band head back into the studio, they are looking for a mobile app to keep fans engaged with their activities between album releases," said Anthony Addis, Manager of Muse. "They are looking forward to seeing what great new ideas developers come up with as a response to the brief." Source
  6. I've been translating this interview in my spare time… I'm still learning German and am not fluent at all so sorry about any mistakes. Anyway, it's by the same person that did this awesome interview/game, and while it's not nearly as funny, I hope it's still an interesting read, even if all the information is old. ---source: http://www.visions.de/artists/stories/4050/1/muse--- PLANET MUSE by Sascha Krüger Much these days is said and written about the new Muse album, “Black Holes & Revelations”, especially about innovations, variations, revolutions. Fact is, in the four years since “Absolution,” the three main actors have developed enormously—as musicians, characters, and people. From that tells this story. Three personal interviews with drummer Dominic Howard, bassist Chris Wolstenholme, and frontman Matthew Bellamy were the basis for this, whose central message here should stand for themselves. Three actors and their way with Muse, their roles, their interests and their relationship to each other. Dominic - the sudden adult Originally we didn't want it, but then it came this way anyway: We toured with “Absolution” at the end of another two years, with many good, but also difficult moments. For me quite particularly, because my father died almost exactly in the middle of this time. As a result, I am going back and forth between the extremes of pure joy and lightheartedness over it, what befell us, to the moment of deep sorrow and acute crises of the mind. But the day of his death is exemplary: after a really overwhelming gig I came from the stage and got the terrible news. Surreal—there's no other way to describe this feeling. The good from this was that I really got to know my friends—it was really amazing how much my so-called friends did not know. Chris was a notable support in this time—he lost his father when he was 17, and therefore he knew that one didn't need to say anything; it is enough that someone is there and takes you in the arm when you need it. And in a strange way, I had become more confident from this death because when you lose someone who stood so close, then you learn to appreciate all the more what you have. But other things were also intense. On this tour were more injuries; for example, Matt tore half his lip on our first gig in our first US tour in five years, so we had to cancel the next few gigs. This had us so pulled down, we thought seriously that it was a sign that we should check off America. Just a few weeks later Chris broke his left hand, and we had to grapple with a backup bassist. It was terrible—and this was when we headlined V Festival. We sounded like a piece of shit. And during a gig as Matt, in mania, just missed a few cuts on my face with his guitar neck, we thought for a moment: okay, we should really let the tour go. This was all very tragic for the band. The trick is to learn to see the positive in all the tragedy, and in that concern, I have definitely matured. Without this knowledge I would have become very sad for a very long time. Quite concretely the band had helped me through this—by the concerts that we played, and the feedback that came back. Through this I have learned above all the simple aspect of time: that one remains to learn to appreciate everything. When we then subjected ourselves practically directly after the US Tour to France into the dilapidated Château Miraval, all was clear: it had to happen. It must be something new coming, something that surprised ourselves. We have made music back as we did before the debut: simply play, try it out, and talk about it afterwards. At the same time it was quite different, because now existed between us an unconscious level of communication that made talking about many aspects unnecessary. Now we simply knew and felt when something is right. Quickly we established that the result can only be called versatility. From the moment we had set all this, we pushed this aspect in relation to sound, arrangement, production techniques, and influences. At the end of every single song there existed a complete individual recording setup with instruments, effects, and even the recording rooms included. It had never yielded so many experiments from us before—experiments with a totally clear objective, however. What else will I accomplish someday? I would like to, for example, eventually make my diving instructor’s certificate. Diving is my new passion. One cannot find a closer feeling to the endless expanse of the universe. Such a foreign world exists underwater directly on this planet. And it is so good to feel yourself weightless, which is a state that I would love to feel continuously. Chris - the down-to-earth one Nowadays we are not a band who plans the next album with military precision. Perhaps it would be better because we would make ourselves less vulnerable, but we don’t work like this. And I don’t know now if we should; while one composes, one records and recycles. So many unpredictable things happen that are good for the process that a plan would only give yourself unnoticed limitations. The only thing that was clear, and also what we already said to you at the last album, is that this album must sound different. The previous Muse way was definitely exhausted. In retrospect, “Absolution” had turned out to be too thoughtful an album for us; it gave very little room for surprises. We wanted to stay explicitly away from that. An album full of surprises even for ourselves: this seemed the right way to us. And yet it’s all held together, simply because this album represents us in our current situation, which naturally is very different from for four years ago during the time of “Absolution”. The reason why we continue to believe absolutely in what we are doing is quite simple: we have endless fun with it. For this reason alone it can’t be wrong. It is amazing, how little has changed fundamentally since we practiced Nirvana songs in the rehearsal room in Devon when we were 15 or 16. The process has literally remained exactly the same. And also fundamentally the same drive: never be too serious or too grim, even if today one hardly still wants to believe. Of course we take our matters seriously, but the background has remained the same: pure fun on matters, new things, new songs, new sounds to try. In some ways we are now naturally like an old married couple. For example, when we record our albums, for the period of production we always draw back to an extremely quiet spot, somewhere no one can bother us. Exactly as long as until we get on each other’s nerves. And then we change to a big city and record everything under a self-imposed deadline. This time it was three weeks straight in New York, then we had enough songs for a double album in the box. Why do I speak only about the band and not about me here? Quite honestly, I think I am a rather boring type. There is very little that is worth mentioning about me that would distinguish me from an average Joe. I love my children, I love my family, I still like to sit in the front yard of my house in my small hometown and I look forward to weekends on my boat. In some way I am probably the most necessary balancing opposite to Matt; whenever he works on something or grapples with something intensive , he is truly a mad professor. Naturally that is a special strength of Muse that he always allowed himself. He tries out things that are absolutely and completely crazy and over the top, not to mention mad. Although, instinctively he always knows that these actions can never be a part of our music, but once you balance his first time with my pragmatism, out of that arises a balance that produces something in the end that is not so crazy. Let’s call it simply a marriage of the brilliant with the down-to-earth. It’s not bad when someone clowns around for many hours long with two million synthesizers as long as someone says in the end, “That was all rubbish, except for that one melody.” That is my part.
  7. I searched for a similar thread but didn't find one. Sorry if this is the wrong section Well, we all know how great Muse is from concert and so. I think this is very interesting what I am up to ask you! How much have you spend to see Muse live? Did you even fly to a foreign country? There are a lot of Muser's here who fly extra to England from Australia to see them at the Wembley Stadium! How far would you go to see them? Feel free to answer
  8. The Devon-upon-Entire Universe trio Muse have been coming here for years, and though they’ve been progressively growing in stature and nipping at U2’s heels in the So Big It’s Ridiculous Stakes, their performances have never been anything less than amazing. The band will be back in the antipodes with their mind-bending, visually arresting and American-conquering Resistance tour in the next month. Drummer and occasional Dominic Howard phoned in from New York to tell fans what to expect this time around, why rotating 360-degree risers aren’t as fun as they look and how recording bass drum sounds in a swimming pool is a totally legitimate thing to do, even when said pool is full. “Well, you know, arenas, not stadiums. Like what they play basketball in and stuff.” There is, apparently a difference. Howard, humble rock star that he is, would like to point out that Muse are currently playing an arena, rather than a stadium tour across the US of A. Not that it makes much difference when you consider the kind of set-up the band has going at the moment. For Howard and bandmates Matt Bellamy and Chris Wolstenholme to put their current show on the road, they need no less than eighty crew members travelling with a custom-made stage. “Sometimes you can turn up and the stage is already there,” Dom jokes, “but that doesn’t work for us.” That might have something to do with the ridiculous set-up the boys have going at the moment, which includes purpose-built skyscrapers for each player, enough lights to blind an entire invading alien army and, you know, a giant UFO with an acrobat inside it.

It looks so cool and it looks good for us, too, because we have something to get distracted with given that nobody’s looking at us at that point in the song!” The subtle difference between a stadium and an arena tour, then, “is the amount of crazy shit we get to pull off. Like in Europe, we had this massive spaceship docking on the stage and we’d walk out of it.” Howard is nevertheless wary about the prospect of bringing the UFO to Australia, “We are doing one outdoor gig in Perth, though, so they might get lucky.” The rest of the bells and whistles, however, are on their way over, including the best ‘party trick’ of all, the skyscrapers. Nobody has it worse (or better, depending on your ability to deal with heights and motion sickness) than Howard, whose drum riser not only propels up to five metres off the ground, but also spins around, while he’s playing. “When they stop [at the top] they kind of shake and wobble…it was slightly nauseating,” he says, “The whole drum riser also rotates around 360, so I can face the entire audience who are behind the stage; to be honest, that’s a bit weird. Looks cool, but it really puts me off a bit. Most times I just try to close my eyes, try and remember where the drums are!” The interests of their fans, who plainly are the kind of people buying seats behind the stage, have really always been Muse’s priority. It’s the reason that they’ve got a massive website with over 300,000 members that’s growing every day, their own Wiki which is constantly being updated with everything from the type of guitar Bellamy plays through to Dom’s brief fling with pink pants and a forum full of diehards, many of whom follow the band across the Continent whenever they embark on another tour. “Oh yeah,” Dom laughs, “we get lots of travellers. There are those people who will come to a huge bunch of gigs. It’s great, sometimes you see them again and you get to say hello, and if they’re cool, you can hang out and meet them properly. We do get that sort of… reaction. Our fans are either diehard passionate or they hate us, but we don’t get a lot of middle ground.” In case you haven’t heard The Resistance, Space Dementia or perhaps their latest polarising opus, Neutron Star Collision (Love Is Forever), Muse don’t do a lot of middle ground recording, either. Fans have famously retold the story of how the band cut Absolution opener Apocalypse Please underwater, and Howard is on hand to confirm the rumour. “We were in this studio in Ireland and really isolated,” he says, “and we were just trying out all the different rooms for sound, as you do. The hotel’s swimming pool was great, though, because it supplied this massive reverb. I set up some bass drums and got in the pool to play them, ‘cause that was the most comfortable thing to do.” Its kind of what you’d expect from a band that cut a three-part symphony on their latest record. “We do a lot of experiments with old and rusty things and we hit them to see what happens,” Howard admits, “a lot of the time, nothing happens.” America is strange place for Muse, having only recently warmed to the group properly, in light of their involvement in the Twilight films. Dom admits it’s strange playing songs like Plug-In Baby, New Born and Feeling Good that weren’t even released in the States the first time around. Unlike Australian audiences, who Howard believes he could play Muscle Museum to and they’d know most of the words, most Yanks only own the band’s last two albums, so they’re being re-taught the back catalogue. That being said, the band’s most recent accolades, including Best Riff of The Past Decade and Best Cover of All Time certainly haven’t hindered the recognition of their more classic cuts. But Howard still believes in the power of the tunes themselves: “ Plug-In Baby is juts one of those songs that when you hear it, it’s just so upbeat and positive in its vibe, that you don’t really need to know it to kind of understand what we’re doing. You don’t need much training for that one!” Australian fans of Muse will also be interested to note that this may be the last time they’ll see the band for a while; after almost ten years without either touring or writing, Dom reveals they’re hoping to take a bit of siesta next year. “Generally we’re going to take it easy I think, and maybe think about some new stuff towards the end of the year,” he says, “We might play a few gigs in places we haven’t been to in ages, like South America or Eastern Europe, but other than that, maybe just kick back and reflect.” And that’s a good thing, because really, there’s no worse a place to kick back and reflect than on a twirling drum riser, five metres above the Earth.

  9. DISCLAIMER: You must know basic music theory to understand this! Alright, well this doesn't mean much, but I just thought it's very interesting and is more than a coincidence. During the song "Piano Thing", Matt "Arpeggiates" a certain chord. It's at about 17 seconds in. This chord is an FmAdd9, which is the notes: F(Root), G(Ninth), Ab(Minor Third), C(Perfect Fifth). Now, the beginning piano lick in Ruled by Secrecy goes like this: "C, G#, G, F, G, G#" then repeats itself. This is the exact same chord as the chord in piano thing. I think Matt was playing around with chords he liked (such as the FmAdd9) and came up with the intro to Ruled by Secrecy. Don't bother asking how I figured this out. I do have quite a bit of spare time. Discuss.
  10. My band is after a good one word catchy name?? Any thoughts?? Or anything you got
  11. I was watching the first trailer today for the movie "The Tourist", starring Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie. I was shocked when about halfway through, I heard the opening to Map of the Problematique start playing. I was even more shocked that the song continued through all the way to the end of the trailer, and was featured quite prominently. Here's the link: "The Tourist" trailer featuring MOTP Personally I think this is awesome. It's cool to see a trailer for a major film starring two major stars using a Muse song as the primary musical drive for half of the trailer. And it's awesome that they're using a song other than Muse's popular songs, such as Uprising. Clearly people are recognizing that Muse exists, and they are investigating them. You need to look a little bit to find a song like MOTP for a movie trailer
  12. Okay, so my Muse obsession is negatively affecting my school performance. My parents are starting to get really annoyed with me. I never do ANY homework because I just listen to music (mainly Muse) all the time and watch Muse videos on Youtube! It's not okay! I want to stop but I keep ending up going back to listening to music! How do I go about changing? I need balancee!
  13. What do you buy Mister Bellamy for christmas, I need to know and I figured the diehard fans would be the best people to come to for advice.
  14. Muse have been nominated in the Best Alternative Rock Artist category at this year's American Music Awards! The awards take place on Sunday 21st November 2010, voting is open now on the link below and closes on Friday November 12th so make sure you get your votes in before then! Source: http://muse.mu/news/article/715/muse-nominated-for-an-american-music-award/
  15. I was doing a survey about movies, and they presented to me a possible trailer for the upcoming film 'Never Let Me Go' starring Carey Mulligan and Keira Knightley. To my surprise, halfway through this trailer, Exogenesis Part 3 started to play. I don't think the trailer has been officially released yet, and who knows, they may change the music. But still, pretty cool eh?
  16. Muse to play at Fuji Rock Festival 2010, confirmed by Japanese magazine Rockin' On. No specific information is available now, more to follow. UPDATE: Muse confirmed they will headline on Friday 30th July. http://muse.mu/gig/1015/2010-07-30/fuji-rock-festival-niigata-japan/
  17. Well, all hallows eve is on Saturday, so post any pics u have of ur Muse-related costumes. I'll post mine on halloween- I'm going to be Matt
  18. Forget candlelit dinners, bouquets of flowers and endless compliments. The way to a woman’s heart lies in wearing a red shirt, it seems. And a red suit may have helped Muse singer Matt Bellamy catch the eye of actress Kate Hudson. The researchers showed women from around the world, including some Britons, pictures of a ‘moderately attractive’ man. Source
  19. Okay... Which one of you is responsible for this? http://memegenerator.net/Perv-Bellamy/ImageMacro/3290848/IVE-SEEN-YOU-NAKED Own up... (I like how it's in the 'proper' tier)
  20. Top 10 Muse on NME TV now Goes off at 9am Channel 382 Undisclosed Desires is on now
  21. I was doodling randomly throughout school today, and I started drawing some comics in which Chris would always be "tormented" in some sort of way (ex. unicorns, zeta invasion, dom's "singing" ). I only got one completely done and have one almost done, so I hope to add a couple of comics here in the near future. So, uh, enjoy (I guess). Yeah, I'm aware that a unicorn doesn't make too much sense. A friend drew it in for me. Plus, it's Matt. I wouldn't be too surprised if he went out looking for a mythical horse . P.S Excuse the semi-crappy coloring. I haven't worked with marker for a while
  22. if your gonna hate on it, dont post we know its not real http://www.nme.com/blog/index.php?blog=10&p=9270&title=cool_list_countdown_70_52&more=1&c=1 the key bits so far 69. Matt Bellamy, Muse He goes out with a movie star (Kate Hudson) and plays guitar like a Jimi Hendrix for the Virgin Galactic age. Not even the fact that Muse contributed a song to that lame Twilight film can diminish our admiration for their outrageously gifted frontman. 66. Cher Lloyd Why is she in the Cool List? Allow Jaimie Hodgson to explain. 51. Josh Homme OK, he's not done a whole lot of note this year, aside from touring with Them Crooked Vultures, but the man known to his QOTSA bandmates as "the ginger Elvis" will always be at least 15% cooler than the average American rocker. can only imagine what the reaction to Cher will be I feel like such a troll
