This weeks issue of NME is featuring a review and the verdict of the new Muse album 'Black Holes and revelations' (9/10).
You can listen to Muse's new album on their My Space.
Muse cancelled their appearance at Germany's Hurricane Festival yesterday (June 25).
The band were due to play for over 40,000 fans but their appearance was cancelled at the last minute, after a thunderstorm wrecked havoc on site in Scheesel.
"Muse are very disappointed having been forced to pull their headline show last night due to a sudden and extreme storm which started raging 10 minutes before their set was due to begin. The performance was pulled by the festival organisors for safety reasons even though Muse were willing to take on the elements. As the band were walking to the stage the sky turned black and produced an unprecedented thunderstorm. On reaching the stage massive gusts of wind pulled the back of the stage clean off and the crew were found battling heroically with the elements, tying down tarpaulin and attempting to resuce the band's gear which ended up taking a severe lashing. 8 inchs of rain flooded the festival site within 30 minutes, hopefully fans and their tents escaped unscathed."
Muse have risen to 4th in the UK chart with their latest single 'Supermassive Black Hole'.
On the occasion of their coming to Werchter and the release of their new album, Muse are organizing a Meet & Greet. The 6 fans asking the most "rock'n roll" questions will get to meet the band. Many other prizes to win.
