Muse bassist Chris Wolstenholme says the band will begin recording their new album as soon as September, after headlining the Reading and Leedsfestivals in the UK.
Speaking to Radio 1 (via Gigwise), Wolstenholme said:
"September and October, that's when we're going to get into
the studio to start writing the new album … We're always going to
be the kind of band that want to get out and play
"As the years go on there's that temptation to cut the touring down less and less but we still love playing live. I can't ever imagine we'll be the kind of band that cut the touring down significantly."
The statement will be a relief to Muse fans, who might have been concerned that frontman Matt Bellamy’s newborn baby with Kate Hudson could put a stop to their relentless touring schedule.Meanwhile, the band recently offered a competition for their fans to design a t-shirt, with the winner getting VIP tickets to the Reading and Leeds festivals. Melody Deyerle won with her fantastic Space Invaders style tee, which you can see here.
