Muse to Begin Work on New Album Without Frontman

Earlier this month, Grammy-winning English rockers Muse revealed that they were planning to release their follow-up to 2009’s The Resistance in 2012. Now, the band has reported that they will start to work on the album without frontman Matt Bellamy.

Bellamy, who was recently engaged to actress Kate Hudson, is currently taking a break from the band as he and Hudson prepare for the birth of their first child.

Bassist Chris Wolstenholme told UK newspaper The Sun that he will be writing new material for the upcoming album.

“Matt’s raised the bar quite high in terms of songwriting,” Wolstenholme said. “I’m a bit nervous because I don’t want to write a song and it be responsible for the demise of the band.”

This will be Muse’s sixth studio album.
