Muse Bio

Muse

Muse has been perfecting the art of dramatic stadium-worthy rock since 1994. With Matthew Bellamy’s brooding lyrics, Christopher Wolstenholme’s dancing bass lines, and Dominic Howard’s driving beats, Muse has earned numerous awards and rock fans from all around the world. Since the 1999 debut of Showbiz, the band has evolved and infused their sound with a broad variety of genres ranging from classical orchestral music to electronica.

In 2003, Absolution gained Muse international attention and acclaim with its theatrical flair and sheer intensity. With their hit single, “Starlight” from Black Holes and Revelations in 2006, Muse shot to number two on the US Modern Rock Tracks chart and was nominated for a Mercury Prize. The band has sold over 15 million albums and show no sign of stopping anytime soon. Their 2009 album The Resistance was nominated for three Grammy Awards and won in the Best Rock Album category.

With the release of The 2nd Law in 2012, Muse incorporated elements of electronic music into their orchestral rock sound. The album hit number one on the UK Albums Chart and one of the singles, “Survival” was named the official song for the 2012 Summer Olympics in London. Live Muse shows feature intense and dramatic rock hits that pack out world stadiums with energetic crowds.

Muse is one of the few modern rock bands that truly warrant playing in an arena, regularly outdoing themselves with their epic, bombastic sound and elaborate stage productions that haven’t been executed with so much quality and care this side of Pink Floyd. Yet, all of the production value is unnecessary, as anyone that has seen one of their minimal-production festival sets will attest. I saw Muse for the first time at Coachella and again at Staples Center with their Stonehenge-inspired “pillars set” (check it out on YouTube, it was unlike anything that I’ve ever seen before), and I honestly think that I enjoyed them more in a more traditional configuration in the desert. The English power trio are exceptional musicians, particularly guitar god Matt Bellamy, who often channels heroes like Brian May and Jimi Hendrix and even regularly plays Hendrix’s Star-Spangled Banner live. Absolution is definitely my favorite album of theirs, but Black Holes and Revelations will always hold a place in my heart for the eternally crowd-pleasing space rock epic “Knights of Cydonia.” The band is also known for playing pranks when performing on TV shows; the internet is full of videos of them playing each other’s instruments when forced to lip-synch or cursing up a storm when warned about their generally clean lyrics.

Nearly ten years ago I heard the song “New Born” in a friend’s car and was immediately enthralled with the unlikely mash-up of classical sounding piano and heavy metal guitars. I went on to buy the album, which I learned was “Origin of Symmetry,” and loved nearly every track on it. I would go on to tell my friends they should also check out this band, describing their music as a sort of heavy metal opera. Ten years later, I hate sounding like “that guy,” but I do tend to prefer the band’s earlier, more “heavier” sounding albums (Origin of Symmetry, Absolution) over the funkier, glam rock sound they seem to favor today. But every band has to evolve and I respect that Muse is still making uncompromising music that more and more people have caught onto and embraced.

I'm definitely in agreeance with your comment about them moving towards the same category as Queen, U2, and Radiohead.

Muse has successfully climbed up to the #1 spot on my current favorite artists and possible all time favorite artist. Why? Because of their new album. 2nd Law is a must listen and a must listen again and again. Muse has an incredibly powerful sound that overloads the eardrums and leaves you in a state of trance. This affect grows exponentially when heard live. I saw them at Coachella and for a few minutes I though I thought I was on drugs and then realized it was my friend that was on drugs I was just under the influence of Muse. Kaboom!

Gear up for another dose of grandiose mega rock…Muse just released their new album ‘The 2nd Law’ and after an initial listen it’s clear that these guys are taking the next step in their career. They had amazing success with their last album ‘The Resistance’ but with this new album and songs like ‘Madness’ and ‘Follow Me’ they are starting to move towards a category of some of their grandiose predecessors like Queen, U2, and Radiohead. Get ready for some more heavy guitars, electronics, some strings, thematic movements, and Matthew Bellamy’s voice belting out bold lyrics. There's a small 80's synth feel to some of the songs on the new album but overall I think it works pretty well. These guys are about to start touring around Europe…looking forward to them coming to the US and getting tickets to see them in concert.

I am so sick of hearing about how much everyone hates the Olympics song ("Survival"), and I was really nervous about all the dubstep rumors that were coming out about the new album. But man oh man....I am obsessed with the new single MADNESS they just came out with. It's not for everybody, and a lot of people are continue to hate on them for not being as loud as they have been in the past, but if this is a sign of things to come, then I'm stoked to listen to more of the new stuff.
