Muse are 'gonna get heavy' vows Bellamy

Muse frontman Matt Bellamy says the band's seventh studio album is likely to be released in mid-2015 – and it's "gonna get heavy."

He’d previously reported that the follow-up to 2012’s The Second Law would see them moving away from electronic influences and back towards a “basic” vibe.

Drummer Dominic Howard said in April that they were gearing up to begin studio sessions. Now Bellamy has told fans via a Twitter Q&A: “Going well. We hope to have it ready for next summer. It’s gonna get heavy.”

The band are also planning to launch a stack of backstage videos via Youtube. Bellamy says their channel will be “inundated” with titles like “Dom in hospital/guitar hit him” and “Girl pukes on bus in Turkey.”

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
