  1. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/music/3609731/Chris-Wolstenholme-to-write-future-Muse-records.html MUSE singer MATT BELLAMY has passed songwriting duties over to his bandmate. Bassist CHRIS WOLSTENHOLME will pen the band's tracks while the frontman takes a break from rock to be with his actress fiancé KATE HUDSON, who is expecting their first child in July. But Chris isn't hugely confident of living up to Matt's standards. He said: "Matt's raised the bar quite high in terms of songwriting. I'm a bit nervous because I don't want to write a song and it be responsible for the demise of the band." No pressure then.

  3. Ok it didnt make the 100, but it got to 102. Just pipped. This cracked me up because i couldnt bring myself to vote for it. Sorry but its just pure cheese. I predict Birds of Tokyo for No 1!
  4. Do they exist? I have the audio recording but i've been craving for a video, does anyone know if they're making a DVD for the Australian tour?
  5. Hello folks - bit of a shameless plug here but it's of benefit to you so what the hell Our Xmas bumper issue is out now and it includes a massive wall planner thingy. It used a great shot of Matt at Glasto, taken by Danny North. The other half of the year belongs to the Libertines. Here's an image of it so do what you will! http://www.nme.com/magazine
  6. The purpose of this thread is to post wishes to Matt, Dom and Chris for Xmas and the New Year. I made it the previous year too. so, if you think that it's early or that this thread is useless, silly, stupid, childish and so on, please, do not post in it. thank you. it's 2 weeks until Xmas from today. We'd like to thank you for all that you gave us during this year. As always. Have a great Xmas Day, Matthew, Dominic and Christopher, full of love and peace. To you and your families. And a wonderful New Year, that will bring you all that your hearts desire. Take care of yourselves.
  7. edit: Actually based upon a line from the article in this thread. http://board.muse.mu/showthread.php?t=79941 Bellamy didn't give an interview to the Sun, hopefully he never will. I've only posted this for the fact it indicates that Muse haven't actually 'gone soft' already. There is no intention of suggesting that the Sun is not an awful newspaper. Yes the KH part is bullshit. Yes that's the whole 'article'. http://www.thesun.co.uk/sol/homepage/showbiz/bizarre/3265379/Matt-Bellamy-hints-that-Muse-could-go-soft.html
  8. Just saw this on the Triple J website: Arvos with Linda Marigliano Wednesday, 8 December at 2:00pm Muse come in to hang out with Linda for an hour - picking some tunes to play & talking up their crazy new show. Plus US band Girls drop in ahead of their Australian shows.

  12. Hey, Small article with an interview with Chris in Brisbane's Courier Mail this morning. Â Â Â Â BRITISH band Muse had never heard of the brunette, slightly shy author, who met them backstage in Phoenix, Arizona. She proclaimed to be a huge fan, and had written a book to their music, which was about to be published. If it was ever turned into a film, she told them, she'd love to include them on the soundtrack. That was about seven years ago, before Twilight author Stephenie Meyer had hit it big. ``We had no idea who she was or what her books and the film were about to do,'' remembers Muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme. Â But the band, who have long been a success in the UK, Europe and Australia, have Ms Meyer to thank for expanding their US audience. Their songs appear on all three film soundtracks. While they used to trawl the country playing small clubs, this year they returned to play full-size arena venues. Â It's an association Chris is happy about, contrary to some media reports. ``There was a bit of press where I supposedly was slagging (Twilight) off, saying I hated being on it and it was the biggest load of bollocks I ever heard. I said I think it was a good thing for the band. ``It was quite upsetting at the time, because obviously we know Stephenie Meyer. It all came out very, very wrong and I felt absolutely awful about it.'' The band recently got official recognition in the US receiving their first American Music Award. And Wolstenholme also had some good news of a more personal variety. His wife recently gave birth to their fifth child. ``Little Buster, he was born just a month ago,'' says the proud dad. The band had to cancel a few shows, but are back on the road in Australia, kicking off their tour in Brisbane tonight. Â Being in a band and having five kids can't be an easy thing to manage, but Chris, 33, has it sorted. ``To be quite honest, once you've gone past three, it doesn't really make much difference every one you add really,'' he says. ``I love having a big family. I always wanted to have a big family.'' The clan live in Dublin, where Chris recently moved from the band's old stomping ground of Devon. While all three band members lived in different countries for a while, there are plans afoot for the three to return to London. ``I think it will be the first time in 12 years all three of us will live in the same place, which will be great for making the album.'' Chris and his bandmates Matt Bellamy (singer-guitarist) and Dominic Howard (drums) have known each other since they were 15. There are a few skeletons in the photographic cupboard especially of the young Bellamy. ``He looked quite weird when I first met him,'' says Chris. ``He used to wear track suits and have this flat-top haircut. Matt was leaning more towards the sports group. He was into his hip-hop. And then he met Dom, and asked if he could join his band. I think he sort of wanted to pick up a guitar and join a cool band to meet all the cool girls. So, you know, in six months he had long hair and was wearing jeans with holes in and looked like the rest of us.''

  13. I'm making bracelets that have Muse lyrics on them and I hope to sell them. But they need to be under 20 characters, with spaces, or else they will be too long. The "Love is our resistance" one I made is 22 characters and is way too long. so please, under 20 characters! Also, do you think $12 is too much to charge for them? I just need opinions. Thank you, lovely Musers ^_^

  15. Only 3 more days until Muse will be here to start their Australian Tour! We've had four instances of them being in the media last week, so I thought it might be a good idea to have one thread where we can post links to interviews, scans of magazines articles etc. There's bound to be more. Thanks to some industrious Musers this is what we have so far: (I've checked with Olly that it's ok to repost these) http://streetpress.com.au/online_mags/DM/DM_1036/ http://www.fasterlouder.com.au/features/26402/Muse http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/music/living-a-dream-20101125-188o6.html http://blogs.abc.net.au/triplej/2010/11/muse.html And this is from Erato's blog: http://erato1.wordpress.com/2010/11/26/muse-on-the-cover-of-triple-j-magazine-2010-scans/ Looking forward to seeing lots more Muse in the Australian Media!

  17. I was wondering if anyone knows where I could buy muse merch from a shop in or around brisbane? I hope this is the right place to post this.
  18. Living The Dream http://www.smh.com.au/entertainment/music/living-a-dream-20101125-188o6.html [spoiler=Part 1]MATT Bellamy likes the drama. You can hear it in the melodramatic music of his band, Muse. You can see it in the pomp and theatre of their visceral live shows. And, if you were to be snide, you could say his dating of actor Kate Hudson is further evidence. The 32-year-old is, of course, frontman and songwriter-in-chief for one of the biggest bands in the world. The English trio - Bellamy, drummer Dominic Howard and bassist Chris Wolstenholme - met as teenagers in Devon and have expanded their fan base with each of their five albums. Initially dismissed as ''Radiohead-lite'', since their 1999 debut Showbiz, each Muse album has had more pomp, campness and sheer liberty than its predecessor. In conversation, the diminutive Bellamy is polite and relatively modest. He is a little diffident in explaining the creation of the 15-minute, three-part centrepiece that defined Muse's 2009 blockbuster album, The Resistance. What Muse have become and the role Bellamy has played in that requires something more than a polite phone manner and faux modesty, however. And it's telling that as a child, Bellamy experienced what he thought at the time were random dreams. In these, he could graphically see himself playing on the big stages of the world, headlining huge stadium gigs. Today, he can vividly recall being 18 and thinking about holding court on the stage of a stadium. Doesn't every music fan have those dreams? ''Yes but when they come true, you look back and think about it,'' he says. ''You think, is the dream seeing the future or just having the confidence, believing in it and just making it happen? It's weird. I so clearly saw some things that actually happened, certain concerts and moments, and I felt like I knew that was going to happen. It was either arrogance or predicting the future.'' The Resistance, a massive commercial success, divided critics. A common query - aside from whether Bellamy is bonkers - is whether he is, in fact, taking the piss. The album features an orchestra, operatic tracks and air-combat sound effects. There are tales of civil unrest, the rise of a shadowy superpower and the so-called cowardly resistance to corporatisation. Oh and a love story: a romantic narrative transforms into a reflection on life, using love as a key to escaping the world's problems at large. ''I like the album,'' he says. ''It's got some very different things on it and they seemed to work.'' Much of the album was written in the throes of England's current economic crisis. Bellamy's London flat is close to the US embassy and he would watch each week as the protests grew larger and larger. It also motivated him to revisit George Orwell's 1984 novel, the first time he had read it since high school. In fact, Resistance was based on the book's narrative; the theme was a love story against a backdrop of civil unrest. ''That definitely had an impact,'' he says. ''There was a sense of uprising and a feeling that people might crack. Like what happened in Greece, for example. England was quite close to that. There was a feeling that it was time to rise up against the bankers and politicians and make change.'' The Resistance did not generate the hit singles of previous Muse albums. It did, however, help the band grow their fan base. This past European summer, the band headlined nine stadium shows, averaging crowds of about 70,000. They have closed stages at Wembley, Stade de France, Coachella and Glastonbury, where Muse were set to face off against U2 before Bono's back ailment put paid to the Irish rockers' headlining performance.

They have closed stages at Wembley, Stade de France, Coachella and Glastonbury, where Muse were set to face off against U2 before Bono's back ailment put paid to the Irish rockers' headlining performance. ''I was nervous,'' Bellamy says. ''When we found out U2 weren't playing, I thought I'd get Edge involved and do a U2 tribute, because a lot of the crowd bought their tickets expecting to see U2. I was blown away that he was into the idea.'' Bellamy says the band also learnt from their slots supporting U2 last year. ''A lot of bands treat the people they work with like shit,'' he says. ''U2 don't do that. We're more like that with our crew now.'' He also studied U2's stagecraft. This coming tour, for instance, will be Muse's first experience of playing in the round at arenas. Bellamy's mind began to wander as they toured with U2. Could Muse cope with being as big as the Irish superstars? You adapt, sure. But to play a show every night in which the band pushes itself emotionally and also ups its showmanship is daunting. ''I'd be into it for sure,'' he says. ''I've always been one where we have to rise to different challenges as a band every year. You raise the bar and go with it. You think it might all go wrong but often you want to even prove yourself wrong.'' There's also the small matter of proving others wrong. Like, say, Bellamy's infatuation with conspiracy theories. When you write a song that explores ''megalomaniacal'' foreign policy makers that he believes view the world as a chessboard to be manoeuvred, you have to be prepared for some blowback. ''From day one, we've had screaming, negative abuse and everything in between,'' he says. ''If you let that influence you, you start to let it affect your writing and then it's not coming from a real place.'' Daunting to follow up? ''All our albums have done a bit better than the one before. It's been gradual. This album did well but it wasn't like our debut was massive and everything is in its shadow. So none of those fears ever come.'' Muse play Melbourne's Rod Laver Arena on December 14 and 15.
  19. Let there be lights With a live show every bit as epic as their sound, they don’t come much bigger than Muse. Now The Resistance Tour is finally making its way to Australia, the band’s frontman Matthew Bellamy tells Paul Smith how things came to be so huge.
  20. This is about a month old interview, done when Muse were in New Jersey. I don't think anyone's posted this before... it's from a podcast, and because I have no life I put it up on Youtube Part 1 Part 2
  21. 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.
  22. 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
