Muse were supported by a grant from HRH Prince Charles' charity, The Prince's Trust, when they first formed in 1994. "We bought our first PA system with [the money] and still have it now, it comes out for family weddings," Dom Howard revealed to Digital Spy. "I guess you could say we owe Prince Charles £250."

New Muse track 'Something Human' will be released on 19 July 2018...Matt says it will be more 'intimate' than the Drones singles




>336 million global streams and counting (189m Spotify and 147m YouTube) as of June 2018

>3 million digital downloads and counting


Populism in 2009


Matt: "People's popular feeling was being ignored...I was hoping for a movement against capitalist, corporate control [2008 global financial crisis, big banks] and in favour of environmental change..."


Populism in 2018


Matt: "I did not expect this type of popular opinion [aggressive, anti-togetherness type feeling] happening now to be the one which takes control which is quite a shock really... I have learned actually populism can go into very different routes, very bad routes. I was hoping for a very different type of populism, basically."
